The 49ers may not face the Seahawks’ starting quarterback Sunday at Levi’s Stadium. QB Geno Smith was a full go in practice until Friday when he showed up as a non-participant with a groin injury. Seattle is listing him as questionable for Sunday.
If Smith can’t go it would likely be backup QB Drew Lock starting in his place. Lock was acquired by the Seahawks from the Broncos in the deal that sent QB Russell Wilson to Denver.
Lock lost a QB battle last offseason to Smith and didn’t play last season. This year in two games he’s completed 4-of-12 throws for 66 yards and an interception. Sunday would mark his first start in a Seahawks uniform.
Smith isn’t the only player on the injury report. Seattle is also listing linebacker Jordyn Brooks (ankle), cornerback Tre Brown (heel), running backs Zach Charbonnet (knee) and Kenneth Walker (oblique), wide receiver D’Wayne Eskridge (ribs) and defensive tackle Jarran Reed (hamstring) as questionable.
