But he does technically remain on injured reserve, so he doesn’t show up on an injury report.
Fans are eager for updates and a positive one came out Wednesday afternoon.
Russell Wilson would be considered a "full participant" in practice based on how he looks coming off the finger injury, Pete Carroll says. Russ doesn't have to be on the practice report since he's on IR but that's a good sign, obviously.

Wilson does appear fully ready to go and that is fantastic news for the Seahawks.

The Road Ahead
Wilson making his return is huge for a Seahawks team currently sitting with a 3-5 record.
The team does have a difficult opponent in the Green Bay Packers, but that is only true if Aaron Rodgers plays.
The Packers quarterback is set to get out of his quarantine this weekend, assuming he is fully healthy and showing no signs of COVID-19.
Yet nothing is guaranteed and if Jordan Love has to start again, the Seahawks may even enter as betting favorites.
Seattle is at 3-5, however, Wilson has been out since Week 5.
They are a different team with him under center and with how close Geno Smith got them to victories in Weeks 6 and 7, those games likely would have swung in their favor if Wilson was playing.
Following the Packers game is a showdown with the Arizona Cardinals.
An easier slate follows, but the road to the playoffs get much more difficult if the Seahawks fall to six or seven losses so early in the year.
The key is just to take this a day at a time and first make sure Wilson is good to go in a full capacity.
If that is true, there is no reason the Seahawks can’t win any given Sunday.
