Making matters worse for Seattle is the uncertainty at quarterback. Matt Hasselbeck did not practice Wednesday because of a concussion.
Carroll believes the 35-year-old veteran will play this week, but Hasselbeck still had lingering symptoms and observed from the sideline, with reserve quarterback Charlie Whitehurst taking all of the snaps with the first unit. Practice squad quarterback Zac Robinson handled the scout squad.
“Just talking to him and being around him he feels pretty good and all,” Carroll said of Hasselbeck.
