Seahawks to play without Jones, Hasselbeck

Posted: Updated:

RENTON, Wash. - The Seahawks are planning to be without quarterback Matt Hasselbeck and best blocker Walter Jones again on Sunday.

Coach Jim Mora said Wednesday he does not expect his three-time Pro Bowl passer or his nine-time Pro Bowl left tackle to play at the undefeated Indianapolis Colts. Mora says he doesn't know for sure if Jones will play at all this season.

The team will back off pushing the 35-year-old Jones through practice this week. Jones had his second knee surgery in nine months in August.

The 34-year-old Hasselbeck, who broke a rib 10 days ago, still can't run and still has pain when he takes a deep breath.

Seattle (1-2) does expect to have linebacker Lofa Tatupu back from a hamstring injury against the Colts.

Colts' Freeney injured, but may still play

Colts defensive end Dwight Freeney has a strained right quadriceps but has not ruled himself out of Sunday's game against Seattle.

Freeney, a four-time Pro Bowler and former league sacks champ, said Wednesday he wakes up each morning hoping to return to practice. He was injured on the last play of the third quarter of Sunday's game at Arizona.

Some reports have said Freeney will miss two to three weeks with the injury. Freeney declined to put a timetable on how long it would take to return. He says he is walking fine but it will take more than that to practice or play at game speed.
