Russell Wilson’s return timetable remains unclear amid multiple reports

NFL: Seattle Seahawks at San Francisco 49ers Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

You’ve probably heard the crushing blow by now. Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson has never missed a single start in his career, but that appears likely to come to an end in Week 6 after suffering an injury to his middle finger and getting surgery in Los Angeles on Friday.

It’s clear Wilson will in all likelihood miss time. What is anyone’s best guess at this point is exactly how much time.

The initial reports were between six to eight weeks of time for the Seahawks QB.

However, there have been multiple reports circling around the Internet today. Some people happen to be more optimistic on the length of time Wilson will miss.

With that said, some believe this could really be a significant time period.

At this point, it’s unlikely that even Wilson himself has real clarity on when he’ll step between the lines again. You know he’ll be ultra-motivated to beat the odds, speed through his rehab and recovery and be back out there sooner than anyone expected.

But for now, Seahawks fans will have to play the waiting game with their franchise QB.
