Washington Post: Redskins Jim Zorn said newcomer Shaun Alexander
will be active and play Sunday, but cautioned that the former MVP
will not necessarily be the first man to enter the game to spell
Portis. "I don't count Rock Cartwright out of this," Zorn said.
"He could be the first guy in." Alexander has been criticized in
the past for not always embracing the violent spirit Portis and
injured Ladell Betts carry on to the field, abusing themselves for
the extra yard and embracing contact. Alexander has had issues in
pass protection as well. Zorn hopes that Portis and Betts have an
effect on Alexander. "Those are the types of things we're hoping
will grow on him," Zorn said. Zorn called Alexander a "tremendous"
back and repeatedly praised his huge 2005 season, when Seattle
reached the Super Bowl.
