Seattle coach Mike Holmgren said after practice Friday that Hasselbeck still is bothered by the back problem he's had for most of this season. The three-time Pro Bowl passer has missed five games this season with a bulging disk in his back and nerve problems down his leg.

Backup Seneca Wallace took the first-team snaps for Hasselbeck on Friday. Wallace is likely to make his fifth start of the season against the Patriots.

Jones has missed practice all week to rest a bad knee. Ray Willis and Sean Locklear are likely to be tackles on Sunday.

Starting outside linebacker LeRoy Hill is also doubtful. He has a neck injury.
