On Thursday night, the Seattle Seahawks hosted the Chicago Bears in the second week of preseason action.
Entering tonight’s game, the reported plan for Seahawks quarterback Geno Smith was to potentially play until the third quarter. However, when the second half began, Smith was one of the last players to leave the locker room.
According to multiple reports, Smith was seen with a “large wrap” on his right knee. Naturally, Seahawks fans were a little worried about the news.
“Two QBs (Lock and Smith) have some of the worst luck in the NFL,” one fan said.
“This is why you don’t put your QB out there, especially with a down lineman,” said another fan.
“Chris Simms keeps telling us the Seahawks have two good QBs. I don’t see it,” said a third fan.
Smith’s injury comes after Drew Lock was slated to start tonight’s game. Unfortunately, he tested positive for COVID earlier this week and was ruled out of the game as a result.
That opened the door for Geno Smith to solidify his status as the team’s No. 1 quarterback. Instead, the Seahawks struggled and it looks like Smith got injured.
