KIRKLAND, Wash. -- Seattle Seahawks running back Shaun Alexander practiced Friday and could play Sunday against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Coach Mike Holmgren said it will be a game-time decision, based on how Alexander feels Saturday. He was still listed as questionable Friday with a
bruised right knee.
"I think Shaun moved around well enough to play," Holmgren said after Alexander's first practice of the week. "We'll have to see now how he responds
to this tomorrow. We'll see. It will be a Sunday decision."
Holmgren said backup Maurice Morris will start if Alexander can't.
Alexander bruised the knee Sunday, late in Seattle's 21-7 win over New Orleans. He rushed for 135 yards in that game, scoring three touchdowns.
Alexander, 27, has not missed a game in his five-year NFL career. He has played in 65 consecutive games, making 44 starts.
