Latest league news from Saturday 23 October

The timeline of Russell Wilson’s impending return becomes clearer as the Seahawks quarterback begins to heal.

Wilson has the pin removed from his middle finger over the next week and there is a gunshot for an immediate return from the injured reserve, NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo reported on Saturday. Hello football weekend. Wilson is eligible for a return in week 10.

The Seahawks QB underwent surgery a day after spraining his middle finger in a Thursday night loss to the Los Angeles Rams. Wilson was placed on the injured list five days later, meaning he would miss a minimum of three games. The injury ended Wilson’s streak of 149 straight regular-season starts to start his career, which was the longest active streak in the NFL.

Seattle lost its first game without Wilson, falling to the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 6 with backup quarterback Geno Smith at the helm. The Seahawks hit the road this Monday night to take on the New Orleans Saints and host the Jacksonville Jaguars next week before a Week 9 recess. Barring a hiccup, the Seahawks (2-4) will recover their featured QB in Week 10 against the Green Bay Packers, which was the tentative return date once he was placed on IR.
