Seattle Seahawks coach Pete Carroll told reporters Friday the team will place Russell Wilson on injured reserve as he continues to recover from finger surgery, Brady Hederson of reports.

Wilson, who injured his right middle finger Oct. 7 against the Los Angeles Rams and underwent surgery last Friday, will miss at least three games. The earliest he could return is in Week 10 at the Green Bay Packers.

Sources told ESPN's Jeremy Fowler last week that Wilson is expected to be out four to eight weeks.

Wilson's streak of 149 consecutive regular-season starts will end. According to ESPN Stats & Information research, it was the sixth-longest streak in NFL history among quarterbacks.

Geno Smith will make his first start at quarterback since 2017 on Sunday against the Steelers. After Pittsburgh, the Seahawks host the Saints and Jaguars, then have their bye in Week 9.
