Seahawks’ Russell Wilson leaves with finger injury
Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson injured the middle finger of his throwing hand midway through the third quarter of the Seahawks’ Thursday night game against the visiting Los Angeles Rams.
Wilson hurt his right hand on a deep throw to Tyler Lockett, with his follow-through hitting Rams defensive lineman Aaron Donald. After the incompletion, Wilson held up his bent middle finger.
Wilson tried to come back for the next drive after getting his finger taped but threw just one pass on a three-and-out series.
Journeyman Geno Smith then took over and led the Seahawks on a 10-play, 98-yard touchdown drive, going 5-for-5 for 72 yards and a 23-yard scoring strike to DK Metcalf. That was Smith’s first touchdown pass since 2017, when he played for the New York Giants.
Wilson finished 11 of 16 for 152 yards with a touchdown and an interception in a game the Seahawks lost 26-17.
