Russell Wilson’s Recovery is ‘Ahead of Schedule.’

Russell Wilson underwent surgery to have a pin placed into his throwing hand’s middle finger, and the Seattle Seahawks are eagerly awaiting his return. Wilson is still “ahead of plan,” so this return could happen soon.

On Friday, October 29, head coach Pete Carroll met with the media and gave an update. He stated that Wilson has made progress, but he did not provide a firm date for his return off Injured Reserve.

“He’s a fairly upbeat guy. During the news conference, Carroll told reporters, “You know, he’s feeling extremely fantastic.” “His finger appears to be in excellent condition. The stitches have all come undone and such. He appears to be making all of the strides that he should be making at this stage, and he appears to be far ahead of schedule. So we’ll have a look at what that entails.”

Carroll went on to say that the pin is still in Wilson’s finger, and he doesn’t know when the doctors will remove it. Carroll said, “I have the clarity of that which we don’t know.” “I’m really clear about that,” she says.

Wilson may not be able to suit up and assist his teammates recover from a 0-5 start to the season, but he is not sitting at home doing nothing. He is actively attempting to maintain his sharpness in preparation for his ultimate return.

Wilson practiced with the club before being placed on Injured Reserve in mid-October. While the other players followed him, he clutched a football in his left hand and completed bag drills. Wilson also practiced throwing with his opposite hand while wearing a helmet and full pads, prompting offensive coordinator Shane Waldron to joke during a press conference that Wilson was the first “ambidextrous guy to run the keeper game.”

Wilson has continued to work at practice since being placed on Injured Reserve, despite missing the team’s necessary three games. The Tacoma News Tribune’s Gregg Bell captured footage… Nokia News – Quick Recap
