Justin Smith misses third straight practice with elbow injury

Justin Smith did not practice Friday afternoon. He did not practice Thursday or Wednesday afternoon, either.

Jim Harbaugh will address the media in about 15 minutes, and he may shed some light on Smith’s playing status for Sunday night’s game against the Seattle Seahawks. Considering Smith could not even practice in a limited capacity this week, it seems doubtful he will play in just two days.

Smith injured his elbow in the second half of last week’s game against the Patriots. He has started 185 games in a row.
