Seahawks’ Wilson hurts finger, replaced by Smith

SEATTLE — Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson is questionable to return to Thursday night’s game against the Los Angeles Rams due to an injured finger suffered in the second half.

Geno Smith replaced Wilson early in the fourth quarter and threw a 23-yard touchdown pass to DK Metcalf to cut Los Angeles’ lead to 16-14. That capped a 10-play, 98-yard drive on which Smith went 5-for-5.

Wilson banged his throwing hand against Aaron Donald on a third-quarter incompletion. He was examined for several minutes on the sideline by the Seahawks’ team doctor and members of their athletic training staff, who watched Wilson grip a football and then appeared to bandage his middle finger.

Wilson returned for the Seahawks’ next drive, throwing one pass on a three-and-out. He was replaced by Smith when Seattle regained possession.

Wilson has never missed a game since entering the NFL in 2012. His 149 consecutive starts are the most by an active NFL player.
