As MFAN reported in the diaries, Shaun Alexander's scheduled return to the Seahawks lineup has been postponed at least one more week. It won't be against the Raiders. Unless something unexpected comes up -- and goodness, why in the world would that happen? -- Shaun will be activated in the home game against the Rams on Nov. 12.
What's the setback? We don't know. Says Holmgren to a nation of men bound to snicker at the obvious double-entendre: "His crack has healed a bunch. But they were not ready to hand him over to me, so to speak."
We will monitor the crack closely. As closely as possible, anyway.
