Quarterback Drew Lock will make his second consecutive start for the Seahawks. Geno Smith, who missed the Week 14 game against San Francisco, has been dealing with a groin injury he suffered during practice.
Smith took part in early pregame warmups and was not listed among the gameday inactives. Despite Smith being active for the game, general manager John Schneider said on the pregame radio show that Smith had "a little aggravation" of the groin injury in practice this week.
After Lock earned his first start with Seattle last week, head coach Pete Carroll called the experience "hugely valuable."
"We've talked all about it, hung out just talking about what the experience was like, and how he feels differently, so if he's called on, he'll be in just a clearer mindset because of what he went through. It was a very difficult game, a challenging game last week, and he made it through it. He handled it really well and came out of it with a clear mind and all, so that's only going to be beneficial for him."
Lock finished the game 22 for 31 for 269 yards, 2 touchdowns, and 2 interceptions.
Prior to the game, the Seahawks also elevated QB Sean Mannion from the practice squad for additional depth at the position.
