Shark Bites

Seahawks HC Mike Macdonald stopped short of committing to QB Geno Smith as the 2024 starter in a Friday radio appearance. "We're always looking, always trying to figure out what’s best for the team all the time," Macdonald said. "I'm excited for Geno to come in here and start playing and start working. ... I don't want you to feel like I'm dodging this answer, but that's what I'm excited about, for him to come in here and start to build this team the way we envision building it." It's a rather cookie-cutter, coachspeak answer for early March -- but worth noting nonetheless. Smith is under contract for 2024 at a $26.4 million cap hit, and the Seahawks don't currently pick until 16th overall in this spring's draft. They'd likely need to trade up to land one of the top four QBs in the class. It's still more likely than not that Smith is under center for Seattle come Week 1, but don't consider him locked in at this point.

Seahawks QB Geno Smith (groin) put in a full week of practice and isn’t listed on the final injury report. He’s ready to go for Sunday’s game against a banged-up Titans defense. Smith checks in 12th in the Week 16 QB Rankings.

Seahawks QB Geno Smith (groin) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice. That puts him on track to return for this weekend's game vs. the Titans' 15th-ranked QB defense. See where Smith sits in the Week 16 QB Rankings.

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll said Tuesday that he expects QB Geno Smith (groin) to have a full week of practice and play vs. the Titans on Sunday. Smith appeared on track to return for Monday night's game vs. the Eagles but suffered a setback during the week. So he's not a lock to be out there this weekend. But we are projecting it to be Smith under center for the Seahawks in Nashville.

Both ESPN's Brady Henderson and Philly Voice's Jimmy Kempski report that Seahawks QB Geno Smith is not on the field for final warmups. Kempski says "full rosters for both teams" are on the field (without Smith). Henderson says only Drew Lock and Sean Mannion are warming up at QB for Seattle. It sounds like Smith won't quite be ready, though that hasn't been made official yet. We'll keep watching for official word.

Seahawks QB Geno Smith (groin) is active for tonight’s game vs. the Eagles. It’s a surprise after multiple reports over the last 30 hours had Smith unlikely to play. Fox Sports’ Jay Glazer said yesterday that Smith suffered a setback at some point this week. It’s safe to assume that he’ll be operating at well less than 100% tonight, making him a high-risk fantasy play.

Update: The Seahawks have not yet announced who will start tonight's game. Smith, QB Drew Lock, and QB Sean Mannion are all active tonight. That suggests at least some concern about Smith's ability to make it through the game, assuming he starts. We'll let you know if we hear who's starting before kickoff.
