Hasselbeck out of hospital, flying home with team

The early signs following Matt Hasselbeck’s rib injury are relatively encouraging. 

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Seattle’s quarterback is out of a San Francisco area hospital.  Testing indicated that he suffered no internal damage to his kidneys, liver, or lungs.  Hasselbeck suffered no internal bleeding.  That’s the good news.

Frankly, it’s too early to draw many conclusions for Hasselbeck’s rib injury.  He is expected to undergo more testing Sunday after traveling home with the team Sunday night.

Hasselbeck was coming off a highly promising preseason and Week One, when he seemed to put the injury questions about his back to rest.

Now he’s got another problem to deal with.
