Alexander: "The neck is no longer an issue, physically and mentally."

Wednesday, May 20, 2009

It's probably the worst kind of injury any athlete can have -- a fractured vertebrae in the neck. Such an injury limited Lions S Gerald Alexander to only five games last year, and put his budding future in some doubt. As Carlos Monarrez reports in today's, Alexander says he's fully recovered both physically and mentally from his injury, and is ready to get after it and prove himself again. A healthy Alexander who continues coming on as he was, combined with a high-performing Louis Delmas, could go a long way to solving the Lions' perennial secondary problems.
