NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Russell Wilson (finger) is targeting a Week 10 return.
Wilson is dealing with a fracture and dislocation of his injured finger in addition to a torn tendon. He underwent surgery to insert three pins into his middle finger shortly after the Seahawks' loss on Thursday. Wilson will miss the first games of his career because of the injury. Geno Smith will start in his place, drastically reducing the firepower of Seattle's offense. D.K. Metcalf and Tyler Lockett go from being explosive WR1 candidates every week to middling WR2 options. No other pass-catcher will hold any value until Wilson returns. With a bye week in Week 9, Wilson could miss as few as three games.
