Hasselbeck To Start Sunday For Seahawks

Posted: Updated:

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
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.
