Old Bulging Disc Injury Keeps Hasselbeck Away from the Field

Matt's thing is the same,” Holmgren said. “He will rehab during the week. They'll check his strength. Right now, it's on a week-to-week basis.

Matt Hasselbeck and wide receiver Deion Branch have missed the past 3 games with back and heel problems, respectively. Hasselbeck was in Marina Del Rey on Monday for a scheduled visit with Dr. Robert Watkins. The back specialist diagnosed that the problem Hasselbeck was having with the right knee he hyperextended was related to an old bulging disc injury. Backup Seneca Wallace will remain the starter until Hasselbeck can return.
