Seattle stars still out

THURSDAY, OCT. 1, 2009

RENTON, Wash. – The Seattle Seahawks will most likely be without two key pieces of their offense when they face the Indianapolis Colts Sunday.

Matt Hasselbeck, who missed last week’s game with a fractured rib, is expected to be out again, Seahawks coach Jim Mora said. Also unlikely to go is left tackle Walter Jones, who has yet to play this season after undergoing arthroscopic surgery on his left knee during training camp. It was the second surgery in just more than eight months for Jones, who had microfracture surgery on the same knee last December.

Jones practiced all of last week but did not play in a loss to the Bears. He will take some time off this week because of pain in the knee. Mora said Jones hasn’t suffered a setback, just that his knee needs rest.
