Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll says that he is happy for quarterback Russell Wilson to be a risk taker.

Pete Carroll has said that Russell Wilson is able to manage being a risk taker for the Seattle Seahawks.

The quarterback has led the NFC West side to a 6-1 record so far this season, recording 1,489 passing yards and 323 rushing yards.

The team's head coach told NBC Sports: "He's a fantastic competitor, he gets it, he knows what we're after and what we want and so that means that there is some risk involved and I think that he's as much of a risk taker out there than anybody playing the game. But I think that he can manage that risk really well.

"Absolutely, I understand that and if we were going to go conservative, he would take a knee back there if he felt some pressure. He's not doing that.

"I understand that this is a little bit of an issue that kind of comes with the territory of utilising his great talent and also expecting that we're going to make some plays there."

The Seahawks travel to the St Louis Rams on Monday.
