Wednesday practice just finished up. Shaun Alexander flashed some speed and “fresh legs,” according to RB coach Stump Mitchell in his return to practice. Alexander said the wrist injury and the sprained knee aren’t healed, but good enough to play through and that he “should” play this Sunday vs. the Philadelphia Eagles.
“Today was exciting,” Alexander said. “Christmas came a little early.”
Alexander said he expects to be a little sore tomorrow but otherwise felt good. He said he’s good with the team’s new offensive approach of passing more, noting that the team has won its last three games.
“I love it,” he said. “I think we needed to do it.”
