Russell Wilson Lied About Spending 20 Hours a Day Rehabbing His Finger

Russell Wilson returned to the field after missing the last five weeks from a finger injury.

It didn’t go well because the Seahawks lost to the Packers 17-0, and Wilson didn’t play well, only completing 20 of his 40 passes and throwing two interceptions.

Seattle’s Russell Wilson also struggled in his return after missing three games with an injury to the middle finger on his throwing hand that required surgery. He went 20 of 40 for 161 yards with two interceptions.

The Seahawks (3-6) wasted two scoring chances when Kevin King and Adrian Amos picked off Wilson passes in the end zone.

“It’s a big opportunity that we missed out on,” Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said. “Just disappointing because this was a real shot. We could feel it, and we knew it.”

After the game, he talked about how he felt in his first game back, saying he felt great and he felt like he was close to 100%. He then talked about how much he rehabbed saying.

“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.”

If you weren’t aware, there are only 24 hours in a day, so when fans found out that he was spending that much time rehabbing, they didn’t really believe it, and Twitter obviously had a field day.

Russ is a great quarterback, but he can be a little extra and dramatic at times. For the most part, it is harmless but maybe chill on the hype videos and the return videos until you actually score some points. I would expect Russ to bounce back big in his next game, but it might be too late for the Seahawks playoff chances.
