Madden Curse?

Shaun Alexander - RB, Seattle Seahawks 9/25/2006

Shaun Alexander has a broken bone in his foot that was described as a "non-displaced fracture". He is expected to miss at least a few weeks and will be replaced by Maurice Morris until he can return.

Huddle Up: Monster blow to the player who led the NFL in rushing yards last year and set the all-time record for touchdowns. Now every league will have one team that gets to see just how good they are without their top three overall pick.

As if it could be anything else...

Dear LaDainian,

Never, ever pose for the Madden cover. Thanks.

A concerned SD fan.
