Well, there's good news and bad news.
The good news is Seahawks head coach Jim Mora said the plan is for quarterback Matt Hasselbeck (rib) to practice on Wednesday, with the hope that he can play on Sunday against Jacksonville.
Mora also expects to get Josh Wilson (ankle) back this week, which should help the defense.
The bad news is the offensive line got even thinner this week, with offensive guard Rob Sims likely out for a couple weeks with a left ankle sprain. Mora said Defensive end Patrick Kerney also is doubtful for Sunday with a strained groin.

Mora said he had not talked with Walter Jones (knee), so he does not know what the plan is for him this week. The team made the move of signing fullback Justin Griffith back to the active roster and placing Kyle Williams to the practice squad, so they may have to add another body on the offensive line on Tuesday. Mora said they will talk about the decision today and tomorrow.
Sean Locklear (ankle), Leroy Hill (groin) and Marcus Trufant (back) are still out until after the bye week and the Dallas game on Nov. 1.
Mora said if Hasselbeck does play on Sunday, they will mot limit the playbook, but will scheme to make sure he doesn’t take a blind shot off the edge of the defense.
Mora said he started Lawrence Jackson this week as kind of a reward for how well he’s played so far this season, and also because Cory Redding was going to play inside most of the day, with Indianapolis being a pass-first offense. That’s probably why Red Bryant was on the inactive list.
Mora also said he did not review the fumble by Donald Brown because the coaches upstairs said that Jordan Babineaux did not establish possession of the ball in bounds and they probably would have lost the challenge.
