On Monday, Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson was cleared to play. He has been out of action since Oct. 7 due to a tendon rupture in his right middle finger.
There was some concern that Wilson would be out for two months because of his injury. However, he has made a miraculous recovery and is on track to play way sooner than fans expected.
Wilson hasn’t come out and said he’s playing this Sunday against the Packers, but the latest update on his status is promising.
Moments ago, the Seahawks released a few images of Wilson practicing at the team facility. It’s a sign that he’s doing everything in his power to be active for Week 10.

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll commented on Wilson’s status on Monday. If all goes well this week, Wilson will suit up for Sunday’s game.
“He’s not out here to do anything but play,” Carroll said, via ESPN. “He’s not coming back just to practice, so we’ll see what happens as the week goes on. Give us days to figure that out. But the intention is that if he’s OK, he plays.”
Prior to suffering the finger injury, Wilson had 1,196 passing yards, 10 touchdown passes and an interception this season.
The Seahawks could make a potential playoff push if Wilson picks up where he left off.
