Hasselbeck to Play?
Renton, WA - Matt Hasselbeck has gone from excruciating pain to probable in four days.
Seahawks coach Jim Mora said after Hasselbeck completed his third consecutive practice Friday that he expects his three-time Pro Bowl passer to start Sunday against Jacksonville.
It will be his first game since he broke a rib on a dive for the goal line Sept. 20 at San Francisco.
Seattle (1-3) has lost three straight. Hasselbeck says it's time for all players to sacrifice in an effort to save the season. In his case that means cutting short recovery time and playing at less than full health.
Still out are cornerback Marcus Trufant, linebacker Leroy Hill and perhaps top pass rusher Patrick Kerney. The two-time Pro Bowl defensive end is questionable with a strained groin.
