RENTON, Wash. (AP) -Wide receiver Deion Branch is practicing with the first-team offense and has a chance to play for the Seahawks on Sunday.
Quarterback Matt Hasselbeck is finally back on the practice field, too.
Branch's work Friday was so encouraging coach Mike Holmgren said the former Super Bowl MVP has a chance to play against Miami. Branch has played just one half in one game since January following reconstructive knee surgery and a bruised heel.
Hasselbeck ran the scout-team offense on Friday, a day after passing an extensive test of his hyperextended knee and the bulging disk in his back. Hasselbeck is expected to practice with the first team next week and start against the Cardinals. He hasn't played since Oct. 5.
