Seahawks QB Russell Wilson’s 2-word message after finger surgery

Russell Wilson, Seahawks

The Seattle Seahawks suffered a devastating blow to their season when starting quarterback Russell Wilson had a gruesome finger sprain against the Rams. Reports surfaced that the Seahawks QB could undergo surgery to repair the badly sprained finger. Now, Wilson revealed that he has indeed gone through surgery to repair his injury.

In his first post since the Rams game, Wilson tweeted out an image of him after the operation, with a simple two-word caption: “Lion Heart”

Wilson went down with the injury after a routine play. Rams defender Aaron Donald intercepted Wilson’s pass during the Seahawks’ possession, and he unfortunately got a piece of the quarterback’s hand in the process. According to Ian Rapoport, the surgery involved inserting screws into Wilson’s finger, making the process a lot more complicated. The Seahawks expect their starting QB to miss at least 6 weeks.

Russell Wilson’s injury couldn’t have come at a worse time for the Seahawks. Their Week 5 loss to Los Angeles dropped them down to 2-3, and they’ve struggled during their last games. DK Metcalf has been stellar for the Seahawks all season, and Geno Smith performed admirably in Wilson’s stead against the Rams. But they’ll need a lot more from their other guys to make sure they stay afloat in Wilson’s absence.

For now, though, Smith will likely hold down the QB1 spot for the Seahawks in Wilson’s absence. He performed well against the Rams all things considered, but the question is, can he keep it up for more than a month and hold the team together?
