Seattle Seahawks quarterback Geno Smith is facing uncertainty ahead of Sunday’s game against the San Francisco 49ers. The team has listed Smith as questionable due to a groin injury, which he sustained in practice on Thursday.
This injury comes on the heels of Smith dealing with an elbow injury that he suffered in the team’s November 19th loss to the Rams. Despite the previous injury, Smith was able to play in the Thanksgiving night matchup against San Francisco and the following game against Dallas. In 12 games this season, Smith has completed 64.4 percent of his passes for 2,918 yards with 15 touchdowns and nine interceptions.
If Smith is unable to play, the Seahawks will turn to Drew Lock as their backup quarterback. Additionally, the team signed Sean Mannion to its practice squad on Friday to provide further depth at the position.
In addition to Smith, running back Kenneth Walker, running back Zach Charbonnet, linebacker Jordyn Brooks, defensive tackle Jarran Reed, receiver Dee Eskridge, and cornerback Tre Brown are also listed as questionable for the Week 14 contest against San Francisco. Their statuses will be monitored closely as game day approaches.
