Seahawks hope Geno Smith heals up for division showdown vs. 49ers

The Seattle Seahawks likely would have preferred a full week to determine whether quarterback Geno Smith was healthy enough to start against the NFC West rival San Francisco 49ers. Instead, they’ll only have until Thursday night, when the teams meet in Seattle. Smith was injured late in the third quarter of a 17-16 defeat to the host Los Angeles Rams on Sunday when he was knocked to the turf by Aaron Donald. Smith suffered a
