KIRKLAND, Wash. – Seattle quarterback Matt Hasselbeck returned to practice Wednesday but wasn’t allowed to throw deep, saving his sore right elbow for this weekend’s game against Atlanta.
“I’m not going to let him throw deep,” coach Mike Holmgren said. “I’ve been told he can do everything else.”
“I’d only given myself three days’ rest at that point, and it just wasn’t enough,” Hasselbeck said.

His longest throws Wednesday were on a few 20-yard out patterns, where he put a good spiral on the ball and found his receivers each time.
“I wasn’t great, but I was a lot better than I think some had expected, maybe even than I expected,” Hasselbeck said. “It was a good start for Wednesday. I think tomorrow will be a lot better and I should have no problems on Sunday.”
Safety Michael Boulware (foot) and fullback Mack Strong (quadriceps) both are probable, while tackle Walter Jones (ankle) is questionable. There were concerns earlier this week, but Holmgren said all now are expected to play.
“They’ll practice all week. They’ll come back in stages,” he said.
Cornerback Bobby Taylor (knee) is questionable but practiced Wednesday for the first time since Nov. 12, and he could play Sunday after a six-game absence. “I have my fingers crossed that he can play,” Holmgren said.
