John Friesz will start at quarterback for the Seattle Seahawks Sunday because Warren Moon is still hurting from his cracked ribs.
"Warren is not completely ready to go and I just don't think it's worth it to put him out there at this point," coach Dennis Erickson said Thursday. "We've got a long season left and John has had all the practice turns."
He said Wednesday he felt better after throwing a few passes but was sore Thursday.
Jon Kitna will be Friesz's backup.
