Sunday began with some optimistic news for the Seahawks — two national reports that quarterback Russell Wilson might have to miss only three games after having surgery on his right middle finger Friday.
Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson traveled to Los Angeles on Friday to see a hand specialist and get a diagnosis on the finger injury he suffered Thursday night against the Rams, and it’s not clear yet how long he may be out, coach Pete Carroll said.
Never mind all the troubling things that happened to the Seahawks on Thursday night in a crushing 26-17 loss to the Rams — specifically from a Seattle defense that at critical times offered shockingly little resistance and yielded 476 yards. Those breakdowns didn’t come close to reflecting the nightmare scenario that unfolded late in the game.
Matthew Stafford threw for 365 yards and a touchdown and the Los Angeles Rams beat the Seattle Seahawks 26-17 on Thursday night in a game Russell Wilson left in the second half with a finger injury on his throwing hand.
Russell Wilson missed the first significant snaps of his 10-year NFL career, and the Seahawks lost their first Thursday-night game since 2012 in a 26-17 defeat to the rival Los Angeles Rams at Lumen Field.
