Seahawks QB Geno Smith on the mend after battling illness

Seattle Seahawks quarterback Geno Smith was listed as a limited participant in practice on Thursday due to a shoulder injury but still made his weekly appearance at the podium to speak to the media.

Smith discussed his status last from Sunday when he faced off against the Rams while battling an illness he confirmed was “a little bit of a cold.”

“I’m feeling a little better, obviously, my voice isn’t there yet,” Smith told reporters. “I’m a still a little stuffy. When you get your adrenaline going and you are in the middle of the game, you rarely think about anything else, any illnesses, or any type of injuries, and things like that.”

Whether it’s some sort of virus or physical injury, by this point in the NFL season, many players are battling something each week.

“Everyone is playing out there a little nicked up and for me, which was a little bit of a cold, but I was able to fight through it,” Smith explained. “It’s good to be able to do that, but I’m trying to get back healthy and get all the way back to 100%.”

The Seahawks final injury report of the week indicating the game-day designations will be released later Friday afternoon following the team’s walkthrough.
