Hasselbeck Has Cracked Bone In Left Wrist
Seattle Seahawks quarterback Matt Hasselbeck finished the 36-18 victory over the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday, but had his left wrist in a cast after the game with what Coach Pete Carroll said was a cracked bone.
Hasselbeck said he hopes to play next Sunday against the New Orleans Saints at the Superdome.
Carroll said the injury “looks to be manageable.”
Hasselbeck, who threw for 273 yards in the first half, was hurt on a failed sneak attempt on fourth-and-1 at the Arizona 16. Charlie Whitehurst had replaced him.
He did not start the second half, but returned for the third possession of the second half.
Hasselbeck missed last Sunday’s game with a concussion.
