Holmgren on Status of Hasselbeck, Hill, Locklear: "Grim, Grim and Grim"
RENTON, Wash. (AP) - Starting quarterback Matt Hasselbeck will be the emergency third QB again this week, and Seattle Seahawks fans shouldn't expect linebacker Leroy Hill or offensive left tackle Sean Locklear to play either.
Asked about their status yesterday, coach Mike Holmgren said, "Grim, grim and grim."
Also not practicing yesterday at Renton were defensive back Jordan Babineaux, who got a concussion against the St. Louis Rams last Sunday, but is expected to play this week; and wide receiver Koren Robinson, who takes Wednesdays off to rest his chronic knee problem.
Linebacker D.D. Lewis, who has started the past two games for Hill, was limited yesterday to give him some rest. So Will Herring got the majority of snaps with the No. 1 defense this week.
The Seahawks will face the New York Jets Sunday at Qwest Field in their final home game of the season.
