CLEVELAND (AP) -Seattle running back Shaun Alexander, already playing with a cast on a cracked wrist, briefly left Sunday's game against the Cleveland Browns with a sprained left knee and ankle.
Alexander had five carries for 9 yards before getting hurt in the first quarter. He tested the injury on the sideline before heading to the locker room.
Alexander sat out one series before returning in the second quarter.
``His knee stiffened up,'' Holmgren said. ``They are going to do some X-rays on it. He got it twisted up on him early (in the game). His ankle and his knee got a little tweaked. As the game went along, it got a little colder and his knee stiffened up on him.''
The NFL's MVP in 2005, Alexander has rushed for just 460 yards - his lowest total through seven games since 2002. He has two touchdowns after setting the league record of 28 two years ago.
Earlier this week, Alexander complained the cast on his arm was too bulky and limiting him.
