Seahawks’ Geno Smith: Injury occurred on ‘dirty’ play

Seattle quarterback Geno Smith briefly exited the Seahawks’ 24-3 victory over the New York Giants in East Rutherford, N.J., on Monday night due to a knee injury before returning to action.

After the game, Smith told ESPN that he got hurt because of a dirty play by the Giants’ Isaiah Simmons.

The incident occurred early in the second quarter. Smith missed two series but was back at the start of the third period.

Smith was injured after catching his own pass following a deflection. He was tackled along the sideline by Simmons and was slow to get up, but he remained in the game for one more play before being sent to the medical tent on the Seahawks’ sideline.

Following several minutes in the tent, Smith was carted to the locker room and initially was listed as questionable to return.

“A dirty play. Dirty play. You guys can see it. It was a dirty play,” Smith said in a postgame interview on ESPN, referring to Simmons’ hit. “There’s no place in this sport for that. …

“I just don’t respect that type of stuff. There’s no need for that type of stuff. It’s a hard-fought game out there, we’re all battling, but no need to take shots at guys running out of bounds on the sideline.”

Prior to exiting, Smith completed 9 of 11 passes for 67 yards and a touchdown. Drew Lock took over under center, leading Seattle on a TD drive that sent the visitors into halftime with a 14-3 lead.

Smith finished the game with 110 yards and a score on 13-for-20 passing. He has completed 68.3 percent of his passes for 846 yards, five touchdowns and an interception in four games this season.

With the Monday victory, Seattle improved to 3-1, while the Giants dropped to 1-3.
