Geno Smith’s injured elbow is sore, but he’s going to “keep pushing” to play Thursday

Seahawks quarterback Geno Smith left Sunday’s recreation after a monster hit by Rams defensive lineman Aaron Donald that caught Smith immediately on his arm as he was in his throwing movement. Smith left the sport with 18 seconds left within the third quarter.

He missed eight performs in 2 1/2 collection earlier than returning on the ultimate drive in a comeback try that fell quick.

Now, the Seahawks flip their consideration to Thursday once they play the 49ers. Seahawks coach Pete Carroll mentioned Smith has a bruised triceps — “back of his elbow that kind of blew up a little bit” — and is unsure about Smith’s availability for the NFC West showdown.

Smith feels like he is not sure as nicely.

A little sore, not the best, but God is good, so I’ll just keep pushing,” Smith mentioned, by way of John Boyle of the crew web site.

Smith satisfied crew athletic trainers to let him again within the recreation after the Rams took a 17-16 lead.

“I was just trying to go out there and make plays to get us a position to win the game,” Smith mentioned. “It was still hurting, but obviously didn’t do enough.

“I really just had to try to do my best to fight through the pain. That was the main thing, pain tolerance, just trying my best to fight through and keep going. . . . That’s just how I am. I’m always going to try to finish the game if I can.”

He mentioned “yeah, it hurts” when requested the way it felt after the sport.

It appears seemingly Smith gained’t apply this week earlier than seeing the way it feels pregame Thursday.
