Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson will be out several weeks after getting finger surgery.

The NFL superstar suffered a disgusting finger injury during a Thursday night loss to the Rams, and he’s now had surgery to remedy the situation. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

According to Ian Rapoport, reported Friday night that Wilson will probably be out six weeks after the operation.

That means Geno Smith is now Seattle’s starting QB.

The Super Bowl champion appeared to be in high spirits after the operation, and posted a photo of himself in a wheelchair with the caption, “Lion Heart.”

I think it’s safe to say that Seattle’s season is over. I’m a huge fan of Russ, but I get paid to tell the truth.

The truth of the matter is that this is going to crush the Seahawks.

Seattle was already struggling with Wilson healthy and playing. What will they look like after six weeks of Geno Smith?

It’s going to get ugly, and there’s nothing Russ will likely be able to do once he returns to get the team back in playoff position.

Hopefully, Wilson heals up quicker than expected, and this season is salvageable. However, this is a brutal blow for the squad, and there’s no other way to put it.
