AP reports: Former NFL MVP Shaun Alexander was released by the
Redskins on Tuesday after getting only 11 carries in five games.
Alexander was signed Oct. 14 after backup Ladell Betts sprained
his knee in a loss to the St. Louis Rams. Betts has since returned
and resumed the No. 2 role behind NFL leading rusher Clinton Portis. Alexander was looking to make a comeback after foot and
wrist injuries ruined his last two seasons and prompted the
Seattle Seahawks to cut him in April. However, in his limited
carries with the Redskins, the 31-year-old back never showed
anything close to the form that helped him rush for 1,880 yards in
his 2005 MVP season.
