SEATTLE, Nov. 10 (UPI) -- Seattle Seahawks quarterback Matt Hasselbeck has been cleared to play in the team's next game, Coach Pete Carroll said Wednesday.

Hasselbeck sustained an injury while being sacked eight times in Seattle's Oct. 31 loss to Oakland, but Carroll said the signal-caller was no longer displaying any ill effects and will be set to go Sunday in the Seahawks' key contest with Arizona, the team's Web site reported.

"He's full-go and looking good," Carroll said.

Asked if there was any chance Hasselbeck could miss the upcoming game, the coach responded: "No. I think he's ready. He needs to go through the week practicing and make it through, just like everybody else does. But I'm anxious to get him back out there and get him back to take over."

Back-up Charlie Whitehurst took the field last week subbing for Hasselbeck and lost to the New York Giants in his first NFL start.
