It’s still Whitehurst, for now

Nothing has changed with the Seahawks’ quarterback situation from Monday.

That was the word today from coach Pete Carroll in his just-completed midweek Q&A session with reporters. The team is preparing for Sunday night’s game against the St. Louis Rams that will decide the NFC West championship with backup Charlie Whitehurst at the controls. But starter Matt Hasselbeck remains determined to play, despite the strained hip muscle that forced him out of last week’s game in Tampa.

“Like I told you earlier, we’re going with Charlie. He’s ready to go,” Carroll said. “Matt is moving around. He was in the pool today. He is not going to take this in any other way – he’s going to get right for the game; he thinks he’s going to make it.

“It’s going to be against the odds if he can do that, but he’s willing to go for it. We’ll see what that means later in the week.”

Hasselbeck will not practice today or tomorrow.

“We’ll know more when we know more,” Carroll said. “We have to wait a couple of days to figure it out.”
