Top Kwon Alexander News

  • Saints' Kwon Alexander: Back from COVID list

    Alexander (illness) was activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday, Amie Just of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

    Alexander tested positive for the virus over the weekend and missed Monday's loss to the Dolphins, though he's now clear of the health and safety protocols. The 27-year-old had only one tackle while playing 81 percent of the defensive snaps Week 15 against Tampa Bay.

  • Saints' Kwon Alexander: Headed to COVID list

    Alexander tested positive for the coronavirus Sunday and will be placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list prior to Monday's game against the Dolphins, Jeff Duncan of The Athletic reports.

    His absence will leave a hole in the Saints' linebacker unit that already has Demario Davis and Kaden Elliss on the reserve/COVID-19 list. Pete Werner and Zack Baun are likely to handle significant roles in the New Orleans linebacking corps in Week 16.

  • Saints' Kwon Alexander: Racks up two sacks

    Alexander had four tackles (four solo) and two sacks in Sunday's win over the Jets.

    Alexander spent much of his time behind the line of scrimmage Sunday, as three of his four tackles were either a sack or tackle for loss. The linebacker has seen an increased role in the past four games, playing at least 74 percent of defensive snaps and tallying 24 tackles (20 solo) over that stretch. In nine games, Alexander has 38 tackles (30 solo), three sacks and one interception.

  • Saints' Kwon Alexander: Gets sack in win

    Alexander notched four tackles (three solo) and a sack in a 36-27 win over the Buccaneers on Sunday.

    Alexander saw his most action since Week 1 after missing a chunk of the season with an elbow injury. After easing back in with 27 percent of the snaps in Week 7, he logged a 43 percent share in Week 8. Alexander will hope to expand his role even further in Week 9 against the Falcons.

  • Saints' Kwon Alexander: Activated by Saints

    Alexander (elbow) was activated from injured reserve Monday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

    Alexander sustained an elbow injury during the Saints' season opener but returned to practice this week and will be available for Monday's game against Seattle. The 27-year-old racked up two solo tackles in Week 1, and he should immediately reclaim his starting job.

  • Saints' Kwon Alexander: Back at practice

    Alexander (elbow) was designated to return from injured reserve Tuesday, Nick Underhill of NewOrleans.Football reports.

    Alexander has been on injured reserve since suffering the elbow injury in the season opener, but he's now been cleared to return to practice. The move opens a 21-day practice window for the veteran linebacker to be reinstated to the active roster.

  • Saints' Kwon Alexander: Hits injured reserve

    The Saints placed Alexander (elbow) on injured reserve Friday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

    Alexander emerged from the season opener with an elbow issue, keeping him on the sideline during Week 2 prep. New Orleans ultimately deemed that he won't be available for at least the next three weeks by placing him on IR, and while he technically can return as soon as Week 5 at Washington, the team may delay his return with a bye immediately after that contest. If so, the Saints could be without Alexander until Monday, Oct. 25 in Seattle. In the meantime, second-year pro Zack Baun is the likely candidate to step in for Alexander on the weak side.

  • Saints' Kwon Alexander: No practice Wednesday

    Alexander (elbow) did not practice Wednesday.

    It's unclear exactly when Alexander picked up the injury, though presumably it came during one of his 34 defensive snaps in Week 1 against Green Bay. The injury may jeopardize his status for Sunday's matchup against Carolina, though Alexander will look to get some practice time in later this week and return to his typical role as one of the team's primary outside linebackers.

  • Saints' Kwon Alexander: Fully healthy

    Alexander (Achilles) claims he is at full strength, Nick Underhill of NewOrleans.Football reports.

    Achilles injuries are tough to come back from, but Alexander said he's "more explosive" than he was prior to the Achilles injury. What level the linebacker can still play at remains to be seen, but he figures to be at minimum a key component in the team's front seven for the upcoming season. Of course, with Alexander the question is how long he will be able to stay on the field as he has not played a full season since 2016.

  • Saints' Kwon Alexander: Back in Big Easy

    The Saints signed Alexander to a one-year contract Tuesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

    Alexander split time between San Francisco and New Orleans last season, with the former dealing him to the latter ahead of the trade deadline. Between the two locales, he racked up 57 tackles, four pass defenses, two forced fumbles, two fumble recoveries and one sack in 12 games. However, his campaign came to an unceremonious end when he suffered a torn Achilles in Week 16. Alexander amazingly got a clean bill of health a little more than two weeks ago, and he now returns to The Big Easy to serve next to starting middle linebacker Demario Davis.

  • Kwon Alexander: Cleared from injury

    Alexander has officially been cleared from his Achilles injury and visited with the Saints on Monday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

    Alexander was sidelined for the end of the 2020 season with the Saints due to the injury, but could be back in New Orleans for 2021. The linebacker has only played in 26 games over the past three seasons but could add a valuable presence to a locker room.
