Bengals' Mackensie Alexander: Unavailable for season finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alexander (illness) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Ravens, Marisa Contipelli of the Bengals' official site reports.

There's no indication that Alexander's illness is related to COVID-19. He'll nevertheless miss his third game of the season. Darius Phillips and LeShaun Sims will start at cornerback Week 17, and Tony Brown and Winston Rose will rotate in for select packages. Alexander's season ends with 47 tackles (32 solo), six pass breakups and an interception.

Bengals' Mackensie Alexander: Ready to face Cowboys
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alexander (knee) is active for Sunday's matchup against the Cowboys, Marisa Contipelli of the Bengals' official site reports.

Alexander was a full participant to kick off the practice week, but he was subsequently held to limited sessions Thursday and Friday. The former Viking sat out Weeks 4 and 5 while nursing a ribs injury, but he's otherwise remained capable of avoiding missed time in 2020. A matchup against the uber-talented Cowboys receiving corps has the potential to make matters difficult Sunday.

Bengals' Mackensie Alexander: Questionable to face Cowboys
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alexander (knee) is officially listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Cowboys, Marisa Contipelli of the Bengals' official site reports.

Alexander wasn't listed on the injury report Wednesday, but he popped up as a limited practice participant Thursday. He's consistently played upward of 70 percent of defensive snaps when healthy, though LeShaun Sims and William Jackson are Cincinnati's clear top cornerbacks.

Bengals' Mackensie Alexander: Ready for Sunday's game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alexander (hamstring) is active for Sunday's game against the Giants, Marisa Contipelli of the Bengals' official site reports.

Alexander handled an 84 percent snap share last week, his highest rate since Week 6. He's been solid in coverage this season, as he's allowed 235 total yards and no touchdowns through eight games. LeShaun Sims and William Jackson are still the locked-in starting cornerbacks, though.

Bengals' Mackensie Alexander: Ready for Week 11
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alexander (concussion) has been cleared to play in Sunday's game versus the Football Team, Adam Caplan of SiriusXM NFL Radio reports.

Alexander has started in four of seven games this season and consistently plays more than 60 percent of the snaps on defense, allowing 235 total receiving yards and no touchdowns so far. LeShaun Sims will return to action as well, so the Bengals secondary is in decent shape moving forward, although Darius Phillips (groin) is on IR.

Bengals' Mackensie Alexander: Without limitations Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alexander (concussion) was a full participant during Thursday's practice session, Jay Morrison of The Athletic reports.

Alexander suffered a concussion during Sunday's loss to the Steelers, but like fellow cornerback LeShaun Sims (concussion), he is trending towards a Week 11 appearance against Washington. Alexander and Sims were able to participate in full during Thursday's session, opening the door for both players to be activated so long as they're able to officially clear concussion protocol by kickoff Sunday afternoon.

Bengals' Mackensie Alexander: In concussion protocol
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alexander (concussion) will not return to Sunday's game against the Steelers.

Now that Alexander has been confirmed to have suffered a concussion, he'll enter the league's five-step protocol. The Bengals already have LeShaun Sims (concussion) inactive and Darius Phillips (groin) on IR, so Alexander's departure is a notable blow for the team's secondary.

Bengals' Mackensie Alexander: Exits Sunday's contest
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alexander is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Steelers with a concussion, Ben Baby of ESPN.com reports.

The Bengals will evaluate Alexander for a concussion, and if the diagnosis is confirmed, the cornerback won't return to Sunday's game. The Bengals are already shorthanded in the secondary with LeShaun Sims (concussion) inactive and Darius Phillips (groin) on IR.

Bengals' Mackensie Alexander: Back from COVID-19 list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Bengals activated Alexander from the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday, Geoff Hobson of the team's official site reports.

Alexander had resided on the list since Saturday, so it's a positive sign that he's tested negative enough times to come off the list. Expect the Clemson product to rejoin the lineup as a depth cornerback for Sunday's game against the Steelers.

Bengals' Mackensie Alexander: Lands on COVID-19 list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Bengals placed Alexander on the reserve/COVID-19 list Saturday, per the NFL's official transaction log.

Alexander has either tested positive for the virus or come into close contact with an infected person. The Bengals are on bye this week, but they could be short on cornerbacks when they return for the Week 10 matchup against Pittsburgh.

Bengals' Mackensie Alexander: Returns from two-week absence
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alexander (ribs) is active Week 6 against the Colts, Marisa Contipelli of the Bengals' official site reports.

Alexander had missed back-to-back games due to the injury, but he'll be back in action following his return to a full practice participant this week. He should return to his regular role as the primary slot cornerback.

Bengals' Mackensie Alexander: Questionable to face Colts
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alexander (ribs) is officially listed as questionable for Sunday's game in Indianapolis, Jay Morrison of The Athletic reports.

Alexander's rib injury has caused him to miss back-to-back games, but he looks to have a fair shot to retake the field versus Indianapolis. If he's able to gain clearance to suit up, Alexander will handle Cincinnati's slot cornerback reps.

Bengals' Mackensie Alexander: Unable to play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alexander (ribs) is inactive for Sunday's game versus the Ravens, Geoff Hobson of the Bengals' official site reports.

This news was expected, as Alexander was considered doubtful heading into the weekend. LeShaun Sims will cover the outside Sunday while Darius Phillips handles snaps as the team's slot cornerback.

Bengals' Mackensie Alexander: Considered doubtful for Week 5
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Zac Taylor said Friday that Alexander (ribs) is doubtful for Sunday's game in Baltimore, Geoff Hobson of the Bengals' official site reports.

Alexander wasn't able to suit up against Jacksonville in Week 4, and it looks like he's trending toward another absence due to his rib injury. LeShaun Sims should draw another start Sunday if Alexander indeed isn't able to go.

Bengals' Mackensie Alexander: Inactive for Week 4
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alexander (ribs) won't suit up for Sunday's game against the Jaguars, Marisa Contipelli of the Bengals' official site reports.

Alexander came into the game drawing a doubtful tag after not practicing Wednesday and Thursday. In the absence of Alexander for Week 4, look for an uptick in snaps to go to Tony Brown and LeShaun Sims.

Bengals' Mackensie Alexander: Doubtful for Week 4
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alexander (ribs) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against Jacksonville, Jay Morrison of The Athletic reports.

Alexander will likely sit out one week after playing 84 defensive snaps against the Eagles. His absence would create more opportunities for Tony Brown and LeShaun Sims, while Alexander is expected to set his sights on a potential Week 5 return against the Ravens.

Bengals' Mackensie Alexander: Not practicing Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alexander (ribs) was a nonparticipant during Wednesday's practice, Marisa Contipelli of the Bengals' official site reports.

The specifics of the injury remain unclear, however, the Clemson product logged 84 defensive snaps in Week 3's tie to Philadelphia. If Alexander is forced to miss Week 4, Tony Brown and LeShaun Sims would be in line for an uptick in snaps.

Bengals' Mackensie Alexander: Arrested, released on bond
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alexander was granted release from jail on bond by a Florida judge Wednesday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

Alexander, who left Bengals training camp Tuesday, was arrested after allegedly confronting a man involved with the disappearance of his father. The starting slot cornerback is now expected to rejoin authorities in their search efforts.

Bengals' Mackensie Alexander: On personal leave
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alexander left training camp Tuesday for personal reasons, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

Alexander's standing with the team won't be in any way impacted due to the nature of his absence. The Bengals are counting on him to hold down the fort as the team's primary slot cornerback.

Bengals' Mackensie Alexander: Follows Waynes to Cincinnati
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alexander is signing a one-year, $4 million contract with the Vikings, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

The 2016 second-round pick will follow Trae Waynes from Minnesota to Cincinnati, joining a cornerback group that also includes William Jackson (shoulder) and Dre Kirkpatrick (knee). The Bengals might consider cutting Kirkpatrick or trading Jackson, though it wouldn't be out of the question to keep Alexander as a No. 4 corner at this price. The 26-year-old mostly guarded the slot during his four years in Minnesota.
