Seahawks quarterback Matt Hasselbeck can’t tie his shoes, but he can still play quarterback.
The veteran will play, despite a broken bone in his left (non-throwing) wrist. It’s a four-to-six-week injury that Hasselbeck suffered on Sunday in a victory over the Cardinals.
“I’m really not in that much pain at all. I actually feel like I dodged a bullet,” Hasselbeck said Thursday, per the Associated Press. “I’m not concerned at all.”
Still, backup J.P. Losman had to tie Hasselbeck’s cleats on Wednesday.
Hasselbeck will wear a “bulky brace” on the wrist when the Seahawks face the Saints. We wonder if he’ll make like Iron Mike Sharpe and put a foreign object inside the thing.
