The convergence of the "losing team from the super bowl" and "Madden Cover" curses hit Shaun Alexander's left foot this week. Out indefinitely.

Coach Mike Holmgren said Monday that a bone scan revealed Alexander sustained a "small crack" and "displaced fracture" on a non-weight-bearing bone in his foot sometime during the Seahawks' 42-30 win over the New York Giants on Sunday.
"We're looking at a few weeks, let's put it that way," Holmgren said. "The good thing is, it's just a small, little crack -- if you want to talk about a good thing."

Floyd Womack, Chris Gray, and the two top TEs (Mili and Stevens) are already hurt. Look for Maurice Morris to get stuffed repeatedly in Chicago next Sunday night.
