Wilson (finger) was placed on injured reserve Friday, ruling him out through Week 9, Brady Henderson of ESPN.com reports.

Wilson will first be eligible to return Nov. 14 against the Packers, at which point he'll be a little more than five weeks removed from surgery. Some reports suggested he could be out for as little as four weeks, while others put the timeline around 6-to-8 weeks. Either way, the Seahawks plan to start Geno Smith at quarterback for at least three games. Jake Luton, the team's No. 3 QB, presumably will be called up from the practice squad before Sunday.
