Renton, WA (AP) — Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson met with a hand expert on Friday about his right middle finger, which was injured when he lost to the Los Angeles Rams on Thursday night.
Seattle coach Pete Carroll refused to go into many details about the injury until Wilson met with experts in the Los Angeles area. Wilson had his first X-ray set after Rams lost 26-17, Carroll said.
“I want him to go to an expert and see what he tells us,” Carroll said. “But something is happening. Certainly something is happening, so we need to understand how much it is and what the next step is to deal with it.”
Wilson was injured in the third quarter when his finger hit Aaron Donald’s arm in the defensive tackle in a follow-through of a pass attempt. Wilson tried to play another series and throw another pass before giving way to Geno Smith in the fourth quarter.
Wilson simply didn’t have the power to control the ball needed to throw, Carroll said.
“No one should doubt his toughness. No one should doubt his determination and participate in the game,” Carroll said. “If he could throw football and grab it, he would have been in, he would have done it.”
Since being drafted by the Seahawks in 2012, Wilson has begun a playoff of all 149 games and 16 games of the regular season and hasn’t missed a match in his career. Meanwhile, he missed only a handful of matches.
Wilson was closest to missing the match in 2016, suffering an ankle injury in the opening round of the season and a knee sprained MCL in the third week. Wilson never missed a start and threw 309 yards in the first match after his knee injury. And three touchdowns to win the New York Jet.
According to Carroll, Wilson spent most of the night figuring out a plan to inspect his fingers and the next steps in the process.
“This is his best ras in terms of competitiveness,” Carroll said. “I mean I’m doing everything I can to be ready to use whatever he has available.”
