Hasselbeck returns to practice for Seahawks

Posted: Updated:

RENTON, Wash. - Matt Hasselbeck is back practicing with the Seattle Seahawks -- and tired of talking about his health.

The 34-year-old three-time Pro Bowl quarterback practiced Thursday, after taking another Wednesday off to rest a sore throwing shoulder. He will start Sunday at Houston.

The shoulder that had been paining him got worse last weekend on a tackle at the end of a scramble against San Francisco.

Hasselbeck has missed 2½ games this season with broken ribs. He missed nine games last year with a bad back. He says he understands his health is an issue because he is a quarterback, but he wishes everyone would stop talking about it. He calls it "really annoying."

He says this is not his most painful season. That was 2001, his first as Seattle's starter.
