Seattle Seahawks quarterback Geno Smith is inactive for the team's Week 14 matchup against the San Francisco 49ers due to a groin injury.

Drew Lock is set to get his first start of the season.

Smith is dealing with a "two-week injury to his groin" and was considered a game-time decision, sources told Adam Schefter of ESPN. He suffered the ailment in practice on Thursday.

The 33-year-old was listed as questionable for Sunday's contest. He didn't participate in Friday's practice after being limited on Thursday. The West Virginia product is also battling a triceps contusion he suffered in Week 11 against the Los Angeles Rams.

Smith is coming off one of his better games of the season, as he threw for 334 yards with three touchdowns and one interception in a loss to the Dallas Cowboys.

Lock has played in two games this season, completing four passes on 12 attempts for 66 yards and one interception. He hasn't started a game since Week 18 of the 2021 campaign when he was with the Denver Broncos.

Seattle has lost three games in a row heading into Week 14.
