Hasselbeck sidelined by sore hamstring

Published on August 8, 2010 by     Seahawk Fanatic

Quarterback Matt Hasselbeck didn’t participate in the Seahawks’ scrimmage at Husky Stadium on Sunday due to a sore hamstring, but should be ready to return to practice by Tuesday, according to coach Pete Carroll.

Hasselbeck sat out most of Saturday’s two practices as well, with the Seahawks saying at that time he just was taking time off to rest.

But it turns out the veteran quarterback tweaked his hamstring while running out of the pocket during Thursday’s workout.

“He was dying to go today, but we’ll give him today and tomorrow and he’ll be ready to go when we come back Tuesday,” said Carroll, whose full team has Monday off before returning to camp.

“He took off the other day at practice and tried to outrun everybody,” Carroll said. “That was it. I said tried. He did outrun everybody. I’ll hear it from him. He did turn the corner pretty good, but he pulled up lame. So he’s not going to do too much of that.”

Tight end John Carlson also sat out Sunday to rest a sore oblique muscle in his side, though he too likely would have played had it been a real game.

Also missing were linebackers Aaron Curry, Lofa Tatupu and Joe Pawelek, though newly-signed Alvin Bowen participated to provide a little more depth there.

Defensive end Lawrence Jackson and running back Louis Rankin both sat again as well.

The team re-signed wide receiver Mike Hass to take the roster place of Isaiah Stanback, who was waived/injured after tearing his Achilles tendon on Saturday.

“That was such an unfortunate thing,” Carroll said of Stanback’s injury. “He was all by himself. He just planted and it snapped. … He was doing great. He was playing great football for us. His effort and focus and competitiveness were so obvious we were really excited about him making the team.”
