Seahawks QB Geno Smith out with groin injury

Seattle Seahawks quarterback Geno Smith was listed as inactive for Sunday’s road game against the San Francisco 49ers with a groin injury.

Drew Lock is in line to get his first start with the Seahawks after appearing in two games with the team this season.

Smith’s injury occurred in practice this past week.

“He just tweaked his groin a little bit (Thursday),” Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said. “Just kind of stumbled over somebody.”

Smith was already dealing with a triceps injury on his throwing arm that occurred Nov. 19 in a loss to the Los Angeles Rams. He has yet to miss a start since winning the job in training camp before the 2022 season.

Smith has thrown for 2,918 yards, 15 touchdowns and nine interceptions in 12 games this year.

The Seahawks (6-6) have lost three straight games, including 31-13 at home against the 49ers (9-3) on Thanksgiving. Seattle enters the weekend in a tie with the Minnesota Vikings, Green Bay Packers and Rams for the final two NFC wild-card spots.

Seattle running backs Kenneth Walker III (oblique) and Zach Charbonnet (knee) both are active after they were ruled questionable.
