Alexander (undisclosed) has been present for the initial weeks of the offseason program, Rich Hammond of The Orange Country Register reports.
Alexander missed two of the final three games in the regular season due to a concussion and has been limited during offseason workouts due to an undisclosed injury. His presence during the initial weeks of the team's offseason program figures to be a good sign for his status going forward. The 2014 fourth-round selection is expected to move to strong safety this season, which could help him see a boost in tackles due to more activity near the line of scrimmage.
Alexander is expected to play strong safety this season, ESPN's Alden Gonzalez reports.
A 2014 fourth-round selection, Alexander played both safety spots his first two years in the NFL, before operating as a full-time free safety while starting in all 14 of his appearances last season. He was solid in coverage and maintained an every-down role when healthy, yet finished with a modest stat line of 50 tackles, two interceptions and one sack. With LaMarcus Joyner (ankle) likely shifting from cornerback to free safety, Alexander should get to spend more time near the line of scrimmage, which would lead to a significant jump in tackle opportunities.
Alexander (concussion) was active for the Rams' season finale Sunday against the Cardinals.
Following a two-game absence due to a concussion, Alexander compiled five tackles and one interception in his return.
Alexander (concussion) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Cardinals.
Alexander was able to log a full practice Friday after likely clearing the league's concussion protocol, so he'll simply need to pass final tests prior to Sunday's game in order to play. If he's unable to give it a go, expect Cody Davis to draw the start at free safety.
Alexander (concussion) is inactive for Saturday's game against the 49ers.
Despite practicing on a limited basis Thursday and Friday, Alexander is still not cleared for game action and will not play Saturday. Cody Davis will likely draw another start Saturday in place of the injured Alexander.
