Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson has been cleared to play, a source told ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
Wilson was cleared by Dr. Steve Shin, who performed the surgery on the QB’s right middle finger, the source said.
Wilson had surgery on Oct. 8, a day after he banged his hand against Aaron Donald on a follow-through in the third quarter of the Seahawks’ loss to the Los Angeles Rams. The surgery was to repair a tendon rupture (mallet finger) and a fracture-dislocation. Wilson had a pin removed from his finger last week.
The injury landed Wilson on injured reserve, and is the most significant of his career. It snapped Wilson’s streak of 149 consecutive starts to begin his career.
On Monday, Wilson tweeted out, “It’s Time,” along with video of his recovery.
The Seahawks face the Green Bay Packers on Sunday after going 1-2 without Wilson.
Information from ESPN’s Brady Henderson was used in this report.
