SEATTLE — Seattle Seahawks quarterback Geno Smith was active for Thursday night’s game against San Francisco despite being limited in practice this week with an elbow injury.
Smith suffered a contusion on his triceps, near his elbow, in last Sunday’s loss to the Los Angeles Rams. He was limited in Seattle’s light practice on Tuesday but a full participant on Wednesday.
The Seahawks were without starting running back Kenneth Walker III because of an oblique injury and also made veteran defensive end Frank Clark a healthy scratch. Rookie Zach Charbonnet was set to make his first start at running back.
San Francisco was without starting right guard Spencer Burford because of a knee injury. The Niners promoted offensive linemen Jesse Davis and Corey Luciano from the practice squad for additional depth.
