Russell Wilson has been sidelined for over a month now after rupturing a tendon in the middle finger of his throwing hand against the Rams on October 7. After missing three games, and a well-timed bye week, Seattle recently announced Wilson has been cleared to return.

Rupturing a tendon in a finger sounds like a grueling injury and one that would likely take quite a while to rehab. Tendons, especially ones on your throwing hand, are pretty valuable hardware.

So, how did Wilson manage to return so quickly?

He rehabbed 19-20 hours a day, of course.

That’s right, according to Bob Condotta The Seattle Times, Wilson said he worked 19-20 hours a day to get his finger back to health and was trying to break records in his recovery.

Who knew rehab records were a thing? Apparently, they are in Russell Wilson’s world.

I’m no math wizard, but if Wilson was rehabbing 20 hours per day, this meant he was only sleeping up to four hours per day. There’s just no way he was doing that for an extended period of time, I don’t care how good an athlete or how big the man’s ego is.

Wilson and the Seahawks travel to Green Bay to take on the Packers on Sunday afternoon. If Aaron Rodgers suits up for the Packers, it’ll be interesting to see if Lambeau Field can fit both Rodgers and Wilson’s heads on the same field at the same time.
