The Seattle Seahawks quarterback Geno Smith‘s future for the Philadelphia Eagles game on Sunday Night is uncertain. The QB suffered a setback in the team’s practice when he was subjected to a groin injury.

Last Thursday, due to the aforementioned injury, he was sidelined in the game against the San Francisco 49ers. The team suffered without his service as Drew Lock took the reign as starter. The Seahawks had their third consecutive defeat in the season.

Keeping the importance of the game against the Eagles, Smith wants to come back from injury. After the pregame workout season, the QB was spotted talking to the coaches. He was convincing them that he could play against the Eagles.

Although, when he was asked whether he would be playing in the game in Friday’s presser, the QB added that he would see.

I'm getting better every single day, been working around the clock just to try and get my body as healthy as possible to go out there and being able to play.

However, he would not decide to come back to the field. The team’s doctors will have some words with the QB and the management to ensure his comeback on Sunday Night Football. The QB said that he had enough trust in the team’s medical team.

I'm always going to push to play--You have to trust and rely on the doctors, and they felt that I wasn't going to be able to be my best self, and so they held me back. I was going to push it and give it all I've got. It's kind of how I'm wired. I'm going to go until they tell me I can't. 

Drew Lock was replacing Geno Smith in the last two games

Since Smith was injured for the important encounter against the San Francisco 49ers, it was Drew Lock who replaced him on the turf. Lock tried to provide his best, but failed to seal the victory for his team. Against the 49ers, he registered two touchdowns for 269 yards. However, he was also intercepted twice.

Speaking on Lock’s game time on the field, Smith said,

I always believe Drew is going to do great things--I think he has the ability, I think he works extremely hard, I think he deserves his opportunity when it comes, and I was happy to see him go out there and make some really nice plays.

Both, Lock and Smith, have a mammoth challenge to overcome. The Seahawks are presently standing on a 6-7 record. Only an out-of-the-world passing performance can take them to the playoffs. Their quarterbacks need to ensure four victories in the coming time.
