The last thing the Seattle Seahawks need is another injured starter. But, well, they've got one. Marcus Trufant, their All-Pro cornerback, might (not?) have to miss time with what sounds like a pretty painful hand injury.
Seahawks defensive back suffered a cracked bone in his hand in yesterday's practice and was wearing a cast on his hand today. Mike Holmgren said they are going to try to affix something smaller to his hand for Sunday's game to make it more workable. Trufant said he has played with an injured hand before, against both UCLA and the Apple Cup one season at Washington State, though it was on his right hand not his left and it was his thumb not his hand.
The Hawks Insider also mentioned that Lofa Tatupu is sporting a cast on his finger right now, although he's apparently making plays anyway, intercepting a Charlie Frye pass during practice. So yeah, Seahawks = dinged.
"I'm confident," Wallace said. "I've just got to go out there and be able to make sure everything is correct. No busted routes. And after that, you're just out there playing football. You've got to catch the ball."
Well, it all does come back to fundamentals I guess. Still, just the fact that Wallace -- their backup quarterback -- is being pressed into duties is proof my above mathematical equation which clearly shows that this could be a rough week for the Seahawks. Certainly too rough to stake them seven points anyway.
