In an effort to bring back Matt Hasselbeck slowly, Mike Holmgren said #8 could be running the scout team this week. If that goes well, he will take the next step.
Holmgren sounded more optimistic in this news conference than he has in some time. He sounded like Deion Branch might even be able to play. Branch will test the foot today, and depending on how it reacts tomorrow he could increase his practice time this week.
Pork Chop is hurt. Before you kill him, be honest with yourself. You thought he was going to go down in his first game starting. That he has played this long and played pretty well has been impressive. He has a foot injury. Ray Willis will take the practice reps at RG this week but they are hoping that Chop can play.
Doesn’t sound like Will Heller is going to play; he has not come back well enough from his knee injury. Red Bryant’s high ankle sprain will keep him out for a while, everyone’s recovery is different so they don’t have firm time frame.
Eric is going to blog the rest of the news conference while I go out and see if Hasselbeck is practicing.
