Russell Wilson Expected to Miss Significant Time, Geno Smith Will Take Over as Starting Quarterback

Morgantown, West Virginia – It’s officially “GENO SMITH SZN!”

Seattle Seahawks’ starting quarterback Russell Wilson is expected to miss 6-8 weeks with a ruptured middle finger tendon, according to ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler.

Former West Virginia Mountaineers quarterback Geno Smith, who stepped in in the 2nd half of last night’s near-comeback win against the Los Angeles Rams, will now step in and take over as the starter for the Seahawks

Although unfortunate for Wilson, this is precisely the opportunity Geno Smith needs to revitalize his career in the NFL.
