Alexander (hip) returned to practice Wednesday, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio KJR reports.
Alexander has been out of commission for over a week with a strained hip flexor. Now back in action, the 2014 fourth-rounder will jump right back into the competition for depth-chart slotting at safety. While he may not be a regular with the first-string defense quite yet, Alexander is a dark horse to claim one of the starting jobs before Week 1, especially given Earl Thomas' current holdout.
Alexander suffered a hip flexor strain during practice this week, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.
Alexander recently returned to practice after recovering offseason shoulder injury, but the injury bug has hit the safety again, and it looks like he will be out for an indefinite period of time. Expect an update on Alexander's status at some point over the next few days.
Alexander (shoulder) is not taking part in minicamp to further rehab his shoulder, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.
Alexander, who signed with the Seahawks in March, missed the majority of last season with the Rams due to a shoulder injury. He'll continue his rehab with training camp being his next opportunity to take the field. With Earl Thomas absent from team activities for the time being, Alexander could potentially see a heavy workload once he returns to action.
Alexander was released by the Rams in early October and recorded 20 tackles (13 solo) in four games. The 27-year-old started 14 games for the Rams in 2016 and could figure into the mix at safety for Seattle in 2018 with Kam Chancellor's career in limbo from a neck injury and Earl Thomas subject to continued trade rumors.
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.
