KIRKLAND, Wash. -- Seattle quarterback Matt Hasselbeck's injured right thigh is improving, thanks partly to acupuncture treatments, and he could be ready to play Sunday against Buffalo.

Hasselbeck is listed as questionable and didn't practice Wednesday because of the deep bruise just above his knee. He missed last week's 24-17 win over Miami after being hurt on the first play Nov. 14 at St. Louis.

Trent Dilfer completed 14 of 28 attempts for 196 yards passing with one touchdown and two interceptions against the Dolphins.

"He (Hasselbeck) went and saw the doctor on Monday," coach Mike Holmgren said. "It is healing up. That's my hope. If he takes a step backward or it doesn't come along like we thought, then Trent will be ready to go."

Hasselbeck wasn't available for comment Wednesday. He will undergo additional treatment Thursday and should practice Friday, Holmgren said.

Besides treatment performed by Seahawks trainers, Hasselbeck has seen an acupuncturist.

"I think it's OK. Acupuncture, I can go with," Holmgren said. "Look, if he comes dancing in here, then whatever it takes."
