However, Wilson suffered a broken finger in week five of this season, an injury that required surgery. He’s been out of the Seahawks roster since his uncertain return.
After the Seahawks’ loss on Monday night, a game in which substitute Geno Smith and the offense struggled to move the ball, Carroll admitted he wouldn’t have lasted that long with the squad if he didn’t. There hadn’t been eight Pro Bowler Wilson times.
“Because think of all the magic he’s created over the years. He’s got numbers and stats, and fourth quarters is and is and stuff. One of the most winners in NFL history. And it will be really fun when he comes back and plays football for us again this year. And we owe a lot. “
Monday’s loss to the Saints is the Seahawks’ third straight loss and means they slide to a 2-5 record this season.
And while Carroll couldn’t provide an update on their star quarterback’s return, he said his team will continue to fight until he does.
“We miss him, and in the meantime we’re going to keep fighting and clawing and doing what we can,” Carroll said.
