Seahawks' Hasselbeck Has Fractured Rib

By  | 

RENTON, Wash. (AP) -- Seattle coach Jim Mora confirmed Monday that quarterback Matt Hasselbeck has a fractured rib.

The coach also says that the Seahawks have to prepare as though they won't have Hasselbeck for Sunday's game against the Bears.

Backup Seneca Wallace would play if Seattle's three-time Pro Bowl quarterback can't go. Wallace finished the game on Sunday.

Hasselbeck was hit hard in the back by Patrick Willis near the goal line during the first half of the Seahawks' 23-10 loss. H

Hasselbeck struggled toward the sideline and took a trainer's advice to go to the ground before leaving the field.
