It looks like the Seattle Seahawks are going to be without Russell Wilson for a while. The Seahawks quarterback is expected to be out approximately six weeks after undergoing surgery on his finger, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport. The surgery was reportedly more complicated than expected, with Wilson needing screws to stabilize the finger.
We discussed on our latest podcast:
Wilson getting sidelined for more than a month is the latest development in a rough start to the season for the Seahawks. The team currently sits in last place in the NFC West at 2-3, with the 4-0 Arizona Cardinals and 4-1 Rams looking like they will be tough to catch.
Making the situation even more unfortunate is that the Seahawks don’t have their own first-round pick in next year’s draft, having sent it to the New York Jets in the Jamal Adams trade.
