Hasselbeck Likely To Practice

Posted: Updated:
RENTON, Wash. (AP) - Seahawks quarterback Matt Hasselbeck is
expected to practice on Wednesday despite a bruised knee.
It is the most extensive preparation day of the week before
slumping Seattle (1-3) faces Green Bay (2-3) on Sunday at Qwest
Field. That makes Hasselbeck likely to practice on what he says is
a bone bruise on his right knee. Both he and coach Mike Holmgren
say Hasselbeck will start against the Packers.
The three-time Pro Bowl passer got hurt early in last weekend's
44-6 loss at the New York Giants but returned to play deep into the
third quarter.
Deion Branch is not expected to practice. The veteran receiver
bruised his heel against the Giants and is out indefinitely.
