OUT OF BOUNDS
The Madden Jinx has struck again. Seattle's Shaun Alexander, who was on the Madden NFL 07 video game cover, broke his foot and is out indefinitely. Barry Sanders 1999 cover retired before camp. Daunte Culpepper (2002) missed five games (knee). Marshall Faulk (2003) missed two games (ankle) and hasn't reached 1,000 yards since. Michael Vick (2004) missed 11 games (broken leg). Ray Lewis (2005) missed one game and it was the only season he has not had an interception. Donovan McNabb (2006) missed seven games (sports hernia).
