Lars HansonCorrespondent ISeptember 20, 2009

The world of Twitter has become a new phenomenon for sports players, coaches, agents and just about everyone.

Thanks to Matt Hasselbeck he's let Seahawks Nation know his condition after being taken out of the Seahawks-49ers game with a reported "rib injury".

Here is what Matt Hasselbeck said via Twitter about his injury update.

"Going to be alright. Thx to staff at Stanford and Dr. McAdam for snapping this photo."

Hasselbeck has flown back with the Seahawks team to Seattle so he will be fine once he gets a little more rest. It's not as bad as originally thought which is good news for the Seattle Seahawks and the 12th man.

Here is what's Adam Schefter had to report about Hasselbeck.

"Hasselbeck discharged from a SF hospital and allowed to return to Seattle with Seahawks. Wouldn't have happened if he were seriously hurt."

Hasselbeck might miss one day of practice but most likely will play next week at home against the Chicago Bears in what will be a very important game for the Seahawks if they want to make the playoffs.
