Report: Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson feared to be out at least a month

The Seattle Seahawks are expecting to be missing star quarterback Russell Wilson for at least a month after he suffered a finger injury on Thursday night, according to ESPN’s senior NFL reporter Jeremy Fowler.

Earlier Friday, the Seahawks said Wilson was seeing a hand specialist.

Wilson was injured in the third quarter when his fingers hit the arm of Los Angeles Rams defensive tackle Aaron Donald on the follow-through of a pass attempt. Wilson tried to play one more series and threw one more pass before giving way to Geno Smith in the fourth quarter of a Seahawks loss.

Wilson has not missed a game in his career, starting all 149 in the regular season and 16 playoff games since being drafted by the Seahawks in 2012. He’s only missed a handful of plays during that time.

The closest Wilson ever came to missing a game was in 2016 when he suffered an ankle injury in the season opener and a sprained MCL in his knee in Week 3. Wilson never missed a start and in the first game after injuring his knee threw for 309 yards and three touchdowns in a win over the New York Jets.
