Hasselbeck will protect broken wrist with bulky brace

Matt Hasselbeck, Adrian Wilson

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.

    Canada’s greatest athlete wouldn’t lower himself to playing for the Seagals.

    Losman had to tie his shoes? I guess that’s as good as it gets when you’re a third string bust.
