why the Broncos are making a start with Brett Rypien Despite Russell Wilson passing the concussion tests.

Russell Wilson, the quarterback of the Denver Broncos, won't play against the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday.

Wilson was given an additional week of recuperation despite passing the NFL's concussion protocol.

The 34-year-old quarterback suffered a concussion during Sunday's game against the Kansas City Chiefs after his head hit the ground.

The league's head injury procedure has been followed by Wilson this week, and he participated fully in practise on Friday.

The head coach, Hackett, stated that Wilson looked fantastic in practise and during this week's meetings.

Wilson will be replaced by Brett Rypien, a fourth-year quarterback.

In this week's practise, Rypien received all of the first-team reps. His career completion percentage is 56%, with three touchdown passes and six interceptions.

In his career, Rypien has made two starts, one of which came this year against the Jets. 

Wilson intends to assist in any way he can on the sidelines on Sunday even though he is not donning a uniform.
