RENTON — Quarterback Matt Hasselbeck is expected to start Sunday's game against Jacksonville, coach Jim Mora said after Hasselbeck completed his third day of practice Friday.

The Seahawks listed Hasselbeck as probable on their weekly injury report, which according to the league's injury-report standards means there is a virtual certainty he will play.

Hasselbeck has missed the past two games after suffering a fractured rib Sept. 20 at the end of the second quarter of a loss in San Francisco.

"I think Matt's a very tough man, physically and mentally," Mora said. "So I'm not surprised that he was able to have a good week of practice and get stronger every day."

Mora was asked if he could tell Hasselbeck had a rib injury based on his throws.

"Not as of today," Mora said. "Maybe Wednesday. Not today. Today he looked just normal."

Defensive end Patrick Kerney (groin) is questionable, meaning there's a 50-50 chance he will play. Kerney did not practice Friday, but watched and did some work on the side. Cornerback Josh Wilson and fullback Justin Griffith are expected to return after each missed the past two games because of injury.
