Alexander cut by Redskins after four games

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The Washington Redskins have released running back Shaun Alexander after four games and 11 carries with the team, two sources said Tuesday.

The 31-year-old former league MVP had provided insurance while injuries prevented Clinton Portis and Ladell Betts from practicing.

Portis and Betts continue to battle through injuries, but the Redskins apparently felt they needed Alexander's roster spot to help with depth on the defensive line.

Defensive end Andre Carter suffered a foot injury against the Seattle Seahawks in Week 12. Several other defensive linemen are also dealing with injuries.



Alexander spent his first eight NFL seasons with the Seahawks, leading the team to the Super Bowl after the 2005 season. He has 9,453 yards rushing yards and 100 career rushing touchdowns.

You get maybe four good years out of a RB and you might as well kick 'em out. That is just crazy.

He's not great in their scheme but Houston is desperate for RB depth. He might get a look there.

Wow, I remember getting him for fantasy in 05 and was killing people.

Hope someone else picks him up for a year. He is only 600 yds short of 10,000.
