SJ - October 8, 2021

Russell Wilson left Thursday night's loss to Rams early after injuring the middle finger on his throwing hand.  The tip of the finger appeared to be dislocated and after initially having it popped back in place, he was ultimately unable to continue.

Wilson is now expected to miss 6-8 weeks as he recovers from surgery to repair a ruptured middle finger tendon.  Backup Geno Smith will now be the Seahawks starting quarterback until Wilson's ready to go.

It's now time for Geno to cook or hand the ball off a thousand times a game.  One or the other.  Either way it's going to be a rough few weeks in Seattle.
