Russell Wilson, Seattle Seahawks quarterback, has been cleared for play.
Dr. Steve Shin performed surgery on Wilson's right middle finger.
Shin spoke out about Wilson saying, "I am absolutely stunned at his progress. So much so that now I can confidently clear him to full return to play without reservation."
Wilson underwent surgery on October 8, just a day after he smashed his hand against Aaron Donald during a follow-through in quarter three of the Seahawks' loss at the Los Angeles Rams. Surgery was performed to correct a tendon tear (mallet finger), and to dislocate a bone. Wilson had a pin taken from his finger last Wednesday.
Wilson was placed on injured reserve by the injury, which is his most significant career event. Wilson lost his streak of 149 consecutive starts at the beginning of his career.
Wilson tweeted, "It's Time," Monday along with video of his recovery.
After going 1-2 without Wilson, the Seahawks will face the Green Bay Packers Sunday.
