A surprise inactive just one day prior, Alexander quickly fell from the starting lineup to the free-agent heap. The 2014 fourth-round pick had 20 tackles in four games, but the Rams apparently weren't impressed by his overall body of work. With LaMarcus Joyner (groin) on the shelf, Cody Davis and John Johnson started at safety in Sunday's 26-20 loss to the Seahawks.
Alexander (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's contest against the Seahawks, Gary Klein of the Los Angeles Times reports.
The decision is a curious one, as Alexander wasn't listed on the injury report this week. He'll join fellow starting safety Lamarcus Joyner (groin) on the sideline, which will allow Cody Davis and John Johnson to serve as the Rams' top safeties Week 5.
Alexander tallied nine tackles during Sunday's loss to the Redskins.
Alexander had previously been dealing with a shoulder injury. With the injury no longer in the picture, Alexander will look to build on his early individual success.
Alexander (shoulder) was a full participant in practice Thursday.
Alexander sat out of Wednesday's practice but it appears to have only been a minor issue, as the safety was back on the field Thursday. The starting strong safety should be ready for Sunday's tilt with the Redskins barring any major setbacks.
Alexander was held out of Wednesday's practice with a shoulder injury, Lindsey Thiry of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Coming off a two-tackle performance in the opener, Alexander may be in danger of missing the Week 2 game against the Redskins. Alexander's absence would likely allow Blake Countess or Cody Davis to start next to Lamarcus Joyner at safety.
