Alexander had surgery Friday to repair a biceps injury, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Signed to a four-year, $54 million contract last offseason, Alexander suffered a torn pectoral in late October but made it back on the field for the playoffs. He reportedly played through a biceps injury in the Super Bowl, finishing without a tackle despite playing 70 percent of defensive snaps. Alexander will turn 26 in August and should have time to get healthy before Week 1.
Alexander (pectoral) was a full participant in Friday's practice, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports. Alexander had been limited in practice since the NFC Championship Game against Green Bay, so participating in drills without any restrictions Friday represents a tangible step in the right direction. There's no doubt that Alexander will suit up for Super Bowl LIV on Sunday, but it remains to be seen if he'll handle a full allotment of defensive snaps.
Alexander (pectoral) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports. Alexander has put together five straight limited practice sessions since the NFC Championship Game against Green Bay, and he'll have one more opportunity to upgrade his activity ahead of Super Bowl 54 versus the Chiefs. The 25-year-old has had a cap on his reps since returning from injured reserve prior to the divisional round, and it remains to be seen if he'll handle a full workload against Kansas City.
Alexander (pectoral) was a limited participant in Friday's practice, Cam Inman of The San Jose Mercury News reports. Alexander has logged three consecutive limited practice sessions. The 25-year-old is undoubtedly trying to get as close as possible to full health before the Super Bowl, and he'll benefit from another full week of practice to ramp up his activity.
Alexander (pectoral) was spotted wearing a blue non-contact jersey during the portion of Thursday's practice open to the media, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports. Alexander appears set to be listed as 'limited' on Thursday's practice report, just as he was during Wednesday's estimated session. The starting linebacker will look to avoid any setbacks while ramping up his activity over the next week and a half, with the goal of playing increased snaps during San Francisco's Super Bowl matchup with the Chiefs on Feb. 2.
