Free Safety Marcus Robertson suffers from a pulled hamstring and won't suit up Sunday against the Miami Dolphins. Although there is never a good time for an injury, Miami's offense ranks 17th in passing and the capable backup Maurice Kelly should fill in nicely. ...

Trent Dilfer didn't practice Thursday and this means Matt Hasselbeck will surely start Sunday against the Dolphins, while backup Brock Huard could likely be the No. 2 guy.

Coach Mike Holmgren said in Wednesday's press conference that he will stick with Hasselbeck but that he has to play better than he did in the first three weeks of the season, where the offense gave up 17 sacks.

Defensive end Lamar King is likely to start Sunday but could be hampered by a sore foot for most of the season. He is being used sparingly in full-speed workouts to speed his recovery.

Return man Charlie Rogers has a sprained toe but is practicing and is probable to play.

Right tackle Todd Weiner has started three games for the Seahawks this season in place of Chris McIntosh, who hasn't fully recovered from a neck stinger. Seattle is 3-0 when Weiner starts but McIntosh is slated for starting duties against Miami. Although McIntosh has had problems in pass protection this season, his ability to run-block remains impressive - something the Hawks will look for to come away with a win.

Running back Ricky Watters opted to let his cracked shoulder heal naturally rather than having surgery, which could further delay his return to the starting lineup. He could be back in four to five weeks.
