Time is running out for Charlie Whitehurst.
Only one exhibition remains, one last chance to impress a new coaching staff before trading his Seahawks helmet for a baseball cap and a spot on the sidelines.
Unless something goes terribly awry with quarterback Matt Hasselbeck and the Seahawks this fall, Thursday's 7 p.m. exhibition at Oakland is the last time Whitehurst will receive meaningful minutes in a game this season.
"It's probably not something you'll hear a lot of guys say, but I'm glad that we have this fourth game," he said. "It's important for us to do some things in this fourth game. Try to get the run going. Try to make some plays. Try to become more efficient on offense.
"For a lot of guys, and I'm probably in the same boat, you don't know when you'll really get to play again so you have to make the most of the situation."
