Wilson suffered an injury to the middle finger on his throwing hand back in Week 5 against the Los Angeles Rams, and he needed to undergo surgery to repair the issue.
However, the team’s franchise quarterback announced on Monday that he had the pin removed from his finger and is ready to get back on the field.

“No more pin. Time to Win,” Wilson wrote.

The Seahawks rolled to an impressive 31-7 victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday. Backup quarterback Geno Smith completed 20 of 24 passes for 195 yards and two touchdowns, and wide receiver Tyler Lockett hauled in 12 receptions for 142 yards.

In five games played this season, Wilson has 1,196 passing yards with 10 touchdowns and only one interception. There’s still a lot of football left, and the wild-card spots in the NFC are wide open, which means if the Seahawks get on a run behind Wilson, they can sneak into the playoffs.
