RENTON, Wash. (AP) - Matt Hasselbeck is ready to make his first start in six weeks for the 2-7 Seattle Seahawks. Coach Mike Holmgren said yesterday the 33-year-old quarterback will practice with the starting offense and that he plans on Hasselbeck starting at home Sunday against the first-place Arizona Cardinals. It would be Hasselbeck's first game since he hyperextended his right knee in a loss at the New York Giants on Oct. 5. A surgeon in Los Angeles found that a bulging disk in Hasselbeck's back was affecting a nerve and weakening the knee. The Seahawks are 1-4 without Hasselbeck.
