Members of the Seattle Seahawks, including quarterback Matt Hasselbeck, tried to laugh off an incident that occurred on Monday. Six players were jarred when a mechanical security fence hit their van. The incident seemed relatively minor at the time. But Seahawks officials learned late Tuesday that the jolt caused star running back Shaun Alexander to suffer another concussion, leaving his status for Super Bowl XL in doubt.
“We totally expect the dude to play,” Hasselbeck said. “I mean, it’s not like he has ever missed a huge playoff game with a concussion before, right? Oh yeah, we're screwed.”
Police said that there was no reason to suspect foul play regarding the incident, but did admit that they questioned gate operator Gladys Bettis extensively.
