Alexander played 131 snaps on special teams for the Seahawks last season, but didn't see the field on defense in nine games. He'll provide depth at safety in Buffalo behind the starting duo of Micah Hyde and Jordan Poyer.
Alexander (concussion) was a full participant at Thursday's practice, Brady Henderson of ESPN.com reports.
After missing Week 15 with a concussion, Alexander looks on track to play Sunday against the Chiefs. His return, assuming he does not suffer a setback, will bolster the depth of Seattle's special teams unit.
Alexander entered concussion protocol during Week 14's game against the Vikings and hasn't been able to get cleared. Alexander serves strictly in a special-teams role, so his absence won't shake up the defensive dyanmic.
Alexander suffered a concussion in Monday's win over the Vikings, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.
Alexander exclusively played special teams Monday and sustained the concussion late in the fourth quarter on the Seahawks final kickoff of the game. The 27-year-old must clear the league's concussion protocol before he has any chance of returning to game action.
Alexander is active for Thursday's game against the Packers.
Alexander was able to fully practice Wednesday after having been limited to begin the week, and he appears to have fully recovered from his knee injury. The depth safety has yet to play a defensive snap this season and is expected to play his usual special teams role during Thursday's game against the Packers.
