Matt Hasselbeck Injury Update – Probable

It’s looking more and more like Matt Hasselbeck will play this weekend for the Seattle Seahawks. On Friday, Hasselbeck practiced for the third straight day and reports indicate that he looked relatively healthy. As of now, the Seahawks are listing their starting quarterback as probable.

Is Seahawks head coach Jim Mora surprised that Hasselbeck has been able to recover from a broken rib so quickly?

“No, I’m not surprised,” said Mora. “Matt is a very tough man, physically and mentally.”

Before getting hurt, Hasselbeck had a strong start to the 2009 NFL season. In Week 1 against the St. Louis Rams, Hasselbeck passed for 279 yards and three touchdowns as the Seahawks won by a final score of 28-0.

If Hasselbeck can’t play, Seneca Wallace will once again start at quarterback against the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday. After their Week 1 win, the Seahawks have lost three in a row. Week 5 could be a pivotal week for the squad to prove they are good enough to make a run at the playoffs.
