Report: Russell Wilson to have MRI, consultation with hand specialist in L.A. on Friday

Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said quarterback Russell Wilson had a “badly sprained” finger following last night’s loss to the Rams.

But with more tests coming, there should be more known about Wilson’s condition on Friday.

According to NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport, Wilson will undergo an MRI on his finger today and then will have a consultation with a hand specialist in Los Angeles. Wilson’s X-Rays did not reveal a fracture, which has led to the initial belief that the quarterback has mallet finger. That means Wilson’s joint is sprained and his finger is hard to flex.

But Wilson’s MRI should reveal more information — like if Wilson will need surgery to correct the issue. Per Rapoport, that is a possibility.

Wilson has never missed a start since taking over as the Seahawks starting quarterback in 2012. Seattle plays Pittsburgh on Sunday Night Football in Week Six.

  1. I had a mallet fracture once to my ring finger from jamming my finger while catching a football. The tendon pulled right out of the bone. Six weeks in a splint.

  2. Salt tablet! Rub some dirt on it, and get back out there.

  3. This sounds dire — Wilson out and the defense a sieve — Seattle could end up with a very high draft pick come April 2022.

  4. This sounds dire — Wilson out and the defense a sieve — New York Jets could end up with a very high draft pick come April 2022……

    That would be true if they didn’t trade it for Jamal Adams.

  6. This may be the best thing to happen to Seattle if it has a high draft pick to rebuild the O-line or defense. We know Carroll’s a goner, the question is will Russell Wilson leave after this year too?

  7. That injury looks nasty. Hopefully Russ will be OK, but Geno was looking pretty good last night. He moved the ball well and that last pick (when his receiver tripped over his own feet on a timing route) was not his fault. That defense though…woof.
