Quarterback Matt Hasselbeck is active for the
Seattle Seahawks for their showdown with the St. Louis Rams to
decide the NFC West title.
      The team did not announce if Hasselbeck would start. Seahawks
coach Pete Carroll said all week they were planning that backup
Charlie Whitehurst would start after Hasselbeck injured his hip
last week at Tampa Bay.
      Hasselbeck warmed up on the field for about 20 minutes
approximately two hours before kickoff. He threw a number of passes
downfield before jogging back to the locker room while Whitehurst
remained on the field throwing.
      Receiver Brandon Stokley (head) was the only injury-related
inactive for Seattle. St. Louis had no players inactive who were
listed on Friday's injury report.
