Seattle QB Matt Hasselbeck Won't Play Vs. Giants

Cancel that optimism the Seattle Seahawks had earlier this week that quarterback Matt Hasselbeck would play Sunday against the Giants despite suffering a mild concussion last week against Oakland.

The team announced today that Hasselbeck won’t play.

Instead, the Seahawks will give Charlie Whitehurst his first NFL start. Whitehurst has never thrown a pass in an NFL regular-season game.
