RENTON, Wash. (AP) - All signs are pointing toward Matt Hasselbeck returning to quarterback the reeling Seahawks on Sunday against Jacksonville.
The three-time Pro Bowl passer looked sharp while completing a second consecutive practice Thursday. It's his first work since he broke a rib Sept. 20 on a goal line dive at San Francisco.
Top receiver Nate Burleson says he expects Hasselbeck to be throwing to him Sunday.
Burleson cites Hasselbeck dramatically increasing his repetitions with the first-team offense Thursday plus the fact he had zip on his deep throws.
Seattle (1-3) has lost three straight games, with Hasselbeck missing 2½ of them.
