RENTON, Wash. (AP) -Seahawks quarterback Matt Hasselbeck missed another day of practice because of a stiff back on Wednesday, and may also not play his second consecutive preseason game against San Diego.
Coach Mike Holmgren said after Wednesday morning's drills that No. 3 quarterback Charlie Frye will likely get the bulk of playing time on Monday against the Chargers because Hasselbeck's back remains tight and sore. Hasselbeck first felt his back tighten while looking sharp in the first two series of the preseason opener Aug. 8 at Minnesota.
That could be the only game action for Hasselbeck before the opener Sept. 7 at Buffalo. Seattle has just one practice day between Monday's game and the preseason finale against Oakland.
Hasselbeck returned to practice Monday then left Tuesday morning. Holmgren does not consider his quarterback's recurring pain a setback and reiterated that he believes Hasselbeck will be fine.
