    Saints' Kwon Alexander: Shifts to IR

    Kwon Alexander (Achilles) was placed on injured reserve Monday, per the NFL's official transaction log.The 2017 Pro Bowler suffered a torn Achilles during the New Orleans Saints' Christmas Day triumph over the Vikings, rendering his shift to IR an unsurprising one. Despite New Orleans having clinched its fourth consecutive NFC South crown and guaranteed itself an extended season by way of a playoff appearance, the severity of Alexander's injury ensures the 26-year-old will be unable to take the field for the rest of 2020.

    Saints' Kwon Alexander: Packs bags for New Orleans

    The New Orleans Saints acquired Kwon Alexander (ankle) via trade from the 49ers on Monday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.The 49ers are expected to receive a conditional fifth-round pick and linebacker Kiko Alonso (knee) in return, according to Tom Pelissero of NFL Network. Alexander sat out the last two games for the 49ers due to an ankle injury, but the Saints likely believe that won't be an issue moving forward. The 26-year-old should be an immediate starter for the Saints. This wasn't a position of dire need, as the Saints already have one of the best run-stopping defenses in the NFL, allowing an average of 90.6 rushing yards per game (third in the league). Alexander could boost the team's pass coverage, though.

It'll still be a short turnaround for Alexander to be ready for the Week 9 matchup against Green Bay, a Thursday night affair. Demetrius Flannigan-Fowles and Azeez Al-Shaair will both handle some of the reps left behind by Alexander.

    49ers' Kwon Alexander: Back to limited in practice

    Kwon Alexander (ankle) was able to log a limited practice session Thursday, Chris Biderman of The Sacramento Bee reports.Progression in practice is an encouraging sign for the 26-year-old linebacker, as he sat out Wednesday's practice entirely following back-to-back inactive designations Weeks 6 and 7. Whether Alexander gets in enough work prior to Sunday's matchup against Seattle is yet to be seen. The San Francisco 49ers will certainly evaluate long-term risk in bringing Alexander back from a high-ankle sprain, but he could certainly be a pivotal piece against Seattle's No. 1 scoring offense if able to go.
