Seahawks backup quarterback Geno Smith (7) warms up with injured starting quarterback Russell Wilson (3) and practice squad quarterback Jake Luton, right, before NFL football practice on Oct. 13, 2021, in Renton.

The Seattle Seahawks are on the road to play the Pittsburgh Steelers in prime time on Sunday night — without quarterback Russell Wilson. It will be the first time he hasn't started a game in his NFL career. And that's not the team's only problem. More from KNKX sports commentator Art Thiel and Morning Edition host Kirsten Kendrick.
