NFL News and Notes

League MVP Shaun Alexander won't be rushing to the rescue of the struggling Seahawks just yet. Tests unexpectedly showed that Alexander's foot remained cracked on Monday. That means Seattle likely will not have its 2005 NFL rushing leader for next Monday night's game against Oakland.

Alexander has been pain-free for more than a week. But he agrees with team doctors who are trying to ensure the crack is completely gone before he plays again, and to prevent a full fracture that would require surgery.

Veteran linebacker Chris Claiborne was signed by the New York Giants on Monday.

The Giants (5-2) did not announce a roster move to make room for Claiborne, who was signed a day after starting weakside linebacker Brandon Short injured a quadriceps in a win over Tampa Bay.

New York lost strongside linebacker LaVar Arrington to a season-ending Achilles' tendon injury the previous game against Dallas.

Claiborne has spent eight seasons in the NFL with Detroit, Minnesota and St. Louis. He has played in 108 games with 89 starts, 399 tackles, 13 sacks and eight interceptions. He started seven of 14 games with the Rams last season and had 49 tackles and a half-sack before going on injured reserve with a patella tendon knee problem.

Claiborne was the ninth draft choice overall by the Lions in 1999. He played four seasons in Detroit, appearing in 63 games with 58 starts. He signed with the Minnesota Vikings as an unrestricted free agent in 2003 and started all 24 games over the next two seasons.

The Cardinals are sticking with Dennis Green as coach.

Green was back at work Oct. 30, one day after a road loss at Green Bay dropped Arizona to a league-worst 1-7.

After rampant speculation Green was on the brink of being fired after the team's seventh loss in a row, Cardinals vice president and general counsel Michael Bidwill -- son of team owner Bill Bidwill -- released a statement late Oct. 30 supporting the coach.

Sunday's 28-14 loss at Green Bay capped the team's worst first half-season since 1997. The Cardinals have a bye week before playing Dallas at home on Nov. 12.

New England 31, Minnesota 7
Tom Brady threw for 372 yards and two touchdowns to lead the Patriots (6-1) to the victory over the Vikings (4-3) on Monday night. Brady is now 10-0 all-time playing inside a dome. New England's defense had four sacks and four interceptions, forcing Brad Johnson into a handful of uncharacteristic mistakes.
