Russell Wilson can do a lot of things, but fans are not taking in any truth to him rehabbing an absurd amount of hours to come back from injury.
Five weeks after he suffered a dislocation and ruptured tendon in his right middle finger, Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson took the podium days ago and stated he was almost fully recovered.
“I feel great,” Wilson said, in what were his first comments to the media since his injury. “I feel really close. I’m not 100 percent yet, but I’m pretty dang close. I would say in the 90 percentile if not higher. I feel great. I’ve got great conviction about what I’m doing and how I’m doing it. My mindset is better than ever, ready to roll and ready to go.”
Wilson claimed that he rehabbed for ’19 hours a day” to get back on the field with his teammates.
“We probably spent 19 or 20 hours a day working on this hand, trying to break records with this thing,’’ “It was a pretty severe injury in the sense of how many things happened. I think for me, my whole mindset was to cut the time in half, and that has been my mindset since the moment that it happened.”
With that admission, social media called major cap on him spending so much time getting better.
In six games this season, Wilson has thrown for 1,357 yards (239.2 per game) with a league-high 10.8 yards per attempt to go with 10 touchdowns to three interceptions.
On Sunday, Wilson did not attribute his struggles on Sunday against the Packers to the lingering effects of his hand injury.
“My finger felt fine,” Wilson said. “The problem with tonight was I had two bad plays. That’s what it really was.”
Wilson completed just 20 of his 40 pass attempts on Sunday for 161 yards. The Seahawks were shut out 17–0, the franchise’s first scoreless loss since 2011, and the first shutout loss of Wilson’s career.
