'Beck and Branch are Back

by: Michael Steffes

Hey now! Spread the good news--Seahawks starters Matthew Hasselbeck and Deion Branch returned to practice today for the first time in weeks. Hopefully their mere presence will be a boost to the team.

Matt will not play until next week vs Arizona; however, Deion Branch has a chance to play this weekend, according to the Seattle Times. He ran with the first team offense during the morning workout.

Also, according to Clare Farnsworth Pork Chop was back today and will start. Will Heller also practiced but won't play in Miami. David Hawthorne looks as if he will be inactive as well.

If the Seahawks get healthy, they could play spoiler to teams in the playoff hunt as we head towards winter. Every one of their upcoming opponents except the Rams are in a fight for either a divisional title or a wild card spot. ~END~
