Russell Wilson is a tough man. He’s not used to being on the sidelines and not playing in games, so he had to make due on Sunday night.
What you will witness below is the injured Seahawks QB on Heinz Field during warm ups running an imaginary two-minut drill in front of national-TV cameras as he sits on the IR for the first time in his career due to surgery on a dislocated finger.
As you can see, he also held huddles by himself and even audibled out of play calls while running an imaginary offense that only included himself.
For the first time since 2011, Seattle had someone other than Wilson starting at quarterback. Geno Smith started for an NFL team for the first time in 1,414 days. His last start had been Dec. 3, 2017, for the Giants at Oakland.
Smith went 23-of-32 passing for 209 yards and a TD. Unfortunately, he had a crucial fumble late in the game that would cost the Seahawks the game.
