During his game against Los Angeles Rams, Russell Wilson sustained a gruesome fracture in his right hand middle finger. It was easy to assume that he might spend the whole regular season recovering from it.

Russell Wilson to return early

Wilson, while hurling the ball in the third quarter of the game, suffered a collision leading him to the injury. Later in an injury report by Dr. Steven Shin, the quarterback had sustained two injuries to the finger: an extensor tendon rupture (mallet finger) and a comminuted fracture-dislocation of the proximal interphalangeal joint.

Apparently, by the time surgery ended on Wilson’s fractured right middle finger, the doctors had a realistic belief that the Seattle Seahawks star quarterback might make it back in just four weeks, according to sources. “That’s now the hope and, depending on some other factors, that’s possible,” the source told ESPN.

This is a significant recovery by the durable Seahawks quarterback who, until week 6 of 2021 season, has never missed a chance to start for his team ever since he was drafted.

Seahawks during Wilson’s absence

Although during Russell’s unfortunate absence, the QB spot has been taken over by the well-deserved Geno Smith, who displayed his excellent playmaking skills during the last quarter against the Rams. And we expect it of him to continue his phenomenal form for the next four weeks until Russell Wilson returns.

With the news of Wilson’s premature return, although Geno’s spell would be short-lived but the Seahawks would look forward to getting in the same flow with the same QB as early as possible. As the Seahawks after losing three games already this season have put themselves in a vulnerable spot. Can Geno help the franchise produce desirable results in the coming few weeks?
