Seahawks QB Russell Chris Carson among inactives for Los Angeles Rams-Seattle Seahawks matchup;

The Seahawks were also without tight end Gerald Everett, who remains on COVID-19/reserve and missed his second straight game.

Carson was listed as questionable after missing practice Tuesday and Wednesday because of what coach Pete Carroll described as a recurring neck issue that flared back up this week. Carson was still sore on Thursday morning.

Quarterback Russell Wilson appeared to injure the middle finger on his right hand in the third quarter of Thursday’s game against the Rams.

Wilson returned for the Seahawks’ next drive, but backup quarterback Geno Smith came in on Seattle’s first possession of the fourth quarter.

Wilson was hurt on a second-and-14 play that snapped with 7:17 to play in the third quarter. As Tyler Lockett broke open down the right seam Wilson threw as he was hit by Aaron Donald.

Wilson could be seen holding up a bent middle finger on his throwing hand as the play ended with Lockett attempting to dive for an overthrown pass.

A third down run was stopped and Wilson then headed to the sidelines where he had the finger immediately examined by team trainers and taped.

Wilson then threw passes on the sideline and took snaps as the Rams drove 82 yards for a touchdown to go ahead 16-7.

Alex Collins got the bulk of the work in Carson’s absence. He gave the Seahawks a spark last weekend in their win over the San Francisco 49ers, with his 28-yard catch kick-starting their first touchdown drive after five straight three-and-outs to begin the game.

Collins finished with 78 yards and a touchdown on 12 touches.

With Rashaad Penny on injured reserve for at least two more games, Seattle’s other available tailbacks against the Rams were DeeJay Dallas and Travis Homer, who are usually used in change-of-pace situations.

Seattle’s other inactives: defensive tackle Robert Nkemdiche, offensive tackles Stone Forsythe and Jake Curhan and cornerback John Reid.

Right tackle Brandon Shell and defensive end Benson Mayowa were active after missing the past two games. Defensive end L.J. Collier was also active after Seattle’s 2019 first-round pick was a healthy scratch in three of the first four games.

The Rams’ inactives were quarterback Bryce Perkins, linebacker Chris Garrett, offensive lineman AJ Jackson, tight end Brycen Hopkins and defensive lineman Bobby Brown III.

After the kickoff, Wilson threw a few final passes and then grabbed his helmet and returned to the game.

Wilson completed a pass for 1 yard to Colby Parkinson on second down but was sacked on third down.

He returned to the bench following that series and appeared as if he would continue to play.

Wilson has never missed a game due to injury and hasn’t missed a play due to injury since coming out for one snap in a game at Arizona in 2017 when he was examined for a concussion.

Wilson has 145 straight starts, the second-longest active streak in the NFL.
