KIRKLAND, Wash. (AP) -Shaun Alexander might still have a broken foot, something he doesn't want confirmed just yet.
The Seattle Seahawks' star running back said Monday his left foot, broken for the final four months of last season, may still be cracked as he begins the 2007 preseason.
The 2005 NFL MVP doesn't want to know for sure until after his team's veteran minicamp ends Thursday.
``I don't even want to get another X-ray until after this camp,'' a smiling Alexander said after his fourth consecutive day of occasionally carrying the ball during no-contact, no-pads drills. ``If the X-ray shows it's still cracked, it's like, 'OK. What does that mean?'''
Last winter, it meant team doctors finally clearing him to play because they deemed remote the risk of completely breaking through a crack in the fourth metatarsal. He sat out seven weeks because of an injury that began as a severe bruise sustained when a Detroit Lions tackler fell on it during the season opener.
In his second game back, Alexander plowed through the snow for 201 yards on a Seattle-record 40 carries against Green Bay. He averaged 112 yards per game over the final six weeks of the regular season, and finished the year with 896 yards rushing and seven touchdowns in 10 games.
