Wilson, Trufant have concussions
RENTON, Wash. -- The Seattle Seahawks' two starting cornerbacks are out because of concussions.
Marcus Trufant and Josh Wilson didn't practice Wednesday, and Seahawks coach Jim Mora didn't specifically address their playing status for Sunday's game against Brett Favre and the Minnesota Vikings.
"We'll have a couple guys that might be limited (in practice), but nothing serious," Mora said.
Trufant, a Pro Bowl selection in 2007, was injured against Arizona last weekend. He returned to the game.
Wilson was injured when his head slammed off the leg of Beanie Wells and then the turf as Wilson tried to tackle the Cardinals' rookie running back in the second quarter. He also returned to the game.
Seahawks quarterback Matt Hasselbeck resumed practicing. The three-time Pro Bowler had missed the previous two Wednesday practices because of broken ribs and a sore shoulder.
"Yes, that's a good thing," Mora said. "The last two Wednesdays, he's been somewhat limited. That'll help us continue to develop."
