Following two injuries to his right middle finger in a game on Thursday (Oct. 7), NFL quarterback Russell Wilson had hand surgery and received love and support from his wife, Ciara

“You’re the toughest Man I know,” Ciara, 35, tweeted, showing a picture of the two after Wilson’s surgery. “Always dedicated and committed to do whatever it takes. I love you so much my Sweet King. Thank you Dr Shin and team for taking care of my baby.”

Wilson responded to the post on his Instagram story, saying, “my queen” and referencing the Bible verse, James 1:2-3 NIV, which highlights how the testing of your faith produces steadfastness.

Wilson, 32, sustained two injuries to his right middle finger in the game against the Los Angeles Rams, according to a statement made by Wilson’s team, the Seattle Seahawks. He sustained "two injuries to the finger: an extensor tendon rupture (mallet finger) and a comminuted fracture-dislocation of the proximal interphalangeal joint.” 


According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, Wilson is expected to miss six weeks, “though Wilson will no doubt be determined to beat it.” Screws have been placed in Wilson’s finger for stabilization, furthering the injuries’ complications.

Wilson and Ciara began dating in 2015 and married in 2016. They share three children together.
