The Seattle Seahawks were handed some brutal news on Friday when it was announced that quarterback Russell Wilson could be out for 6-8 weeks due to an injured middle finger. However, Dr. Oz believes that Wilson could play within the next 10 days and doesn’t see the injury as that serious. Via TMZ Sports:

“I didn’t see a mechanism of the injury that would usually–a dislocation of the finger, ripped tendons, things like that are more associated with having to operate.

“He might be able to brace it up, put some kind of splint on it and return to action in 10 days for the Seahawks.”

Of course, this is only if Wilson doesn’t need surgery. It hasn’t been ruled out by head coach Pete Carroll at this point, but Seattle will surely want to steer clear of that avenue if possible.

At 1-3, the Seahawks aren’t off to an ideal start by any means after losing to the Rams on Thursday. Geno Smith will take over the QB1 duties for the time being, but he hasn’t started an NFL game since 2016. Their next game will be on October 17 against the Pittsburgh Steelers. If by means of a miracle, maybe Wilson will be available. Dr. Oz definitely believes it’s a possibility.
