Coach Mike Holmgren said the Seahawks will probably be without RB Shaun Alexander for another week. This comes as a bit of a surprise. They expected Alexander back this week, but his foot isn’t quite healed. As Holmgren noted, Alexander’s return won’t make a difference unless the team improves in other key areas. Listen to the rest of Holmgren’s comments here.
Holmgren on Alexander: “It doesn’t look like we’re going to get Shaun back this week. That is the next thing. He had pictures taken today and the doctors, the medical people are reluctant to give me the green light on Shaun after what they saw on the pictures. He is getting better. He is feeling better. And his crack has healed a bunch. But they were not ready to hand him over to me, so to speak, this week. It appears as though he’ll be at least another week.”
