Sue Bird and Lauren Jackson are ready to return to the Seattle Storm post-Olympics. The WNBA season will resume Thursday.
On the Titans sideline is the question of whether second-year QB Jake Locker — a UW graduate also making his return home — is ready to take the reins from Hasselbeck. For the Seahawks, it’s the debut of offseason free agent acquisition Matt Flynn and rookie Russell Wilson, both part of a three-way QB competition with incumbent Tarvaris Jackson. Saturday is the Titans/Seahawks opener.
