 KIRKLAND, Wash. (AP) -The Seahawks expected Shaun Alexander to be back practicing Wednesday afternoon for the first time since he sprained his ankle 3 1/2 weeks ago.
``I think Shaun Alexander is going to practice today. We'll see how that goes,'' coach Mike Holmgren said about 90 minutes before his team got on the field. ``We have our fingers crossed, as he does.''
Maurice Morris, who has averaged 85 yards rushing per game in three starts for Alexander, hurt his ankle late in last weekend's win at St. Louis. Holmgren said Morris may not practice much before Seattle (7-4) plays at Philadelphia (5-6) on Sunday.
Asked whether Morris or Alexander, or both, will play against the Eagles, Holmgren said: ``That's a good one. Anything I say probably won't happen. So we'll just let it happen ... and see how that goes.''
Alexander, who is still wearing a cast over a broken left wrist, hadn't practiced since he sprained his left knee during a loss in Cleveland on Nov. 4. Holmgren said he met with the 2005 league MVP on Tuesday and explained that upon his return, Morris will continue to play.
The coach said Alexander was fine with that altered arrangement. It would be the first time since Alexander became Seattle's lead runner in 2001 that he hasn't been the sole, featured back in the offense.
The 30-year-old Alexander has 492 yards rushing in eight games. He has two touchdowns, the same as Morris has in the last three games.
Quarterback Matt Hasselbeck was also expected to practice Wednesday. He didn't practice until Friday last week because of sore ribs, then rallied the Seahawks to 17 points in the second half Sunday to beat the Rams.
