Matt Hasselbeck Has Broken Bone In Left Wrist

When Seattle Seahawks quarterback Matt Hasselbeck left the game in the second quarter, it was apparent something was wrong with his left hand. After failing to pick up a first down on a quarterback sneak, Hasselbeck left the game and immediately headed to the bench to get checked. A trip to the locker room for X-rays followed shortly thereafter and Hasselbeck stayed in the locker room for the first series of the second half.

The problem, reporters were told after the game, was his left wrist. Hasselbeck re-entered the game and finished it out, throwing for over 300 yards in the process. He did so with a heavily taped non-throwing hand. Hasselbeck suffered a broken bone in his wrist, but head coach Pete Carroll said it "looks to be manageable."

After enduring a few series of the Charlie Whitehurst Experience (tm) this week after a depressing showing last week, the health of Hasselbeck is paramount for this team. If he's able to play through pain and not further aggravate the injury, he should be good to go next week against the New Orleans Saints.
