Alexander notched his first career interception in Friday's preseason game against the Raiders.
Alexander was trailing slightly behind the receiver but made up the difference quickly and skied to intercept Connor Cook. The Packers' first-round pick isn't a lock to start to begin the season, but it wouldn't be surprising if he's a consistent contributor during his rookie campaign.
Alexander had been nursing a groin injury which held him out of Green Bay's preseason opener. The Packers have been lacking playmaking in their secondary over the past couple of seasons, so a healthy Alexander would be a big piece for the team moving forward.
Alexander sat out practice due to a groin injury Monday, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.
Alexander, selected by the Packers 18th overall in the 2018 NFL Draft, is dealing with an unspecified groin issue. Considering that injury concerns were the largest knock against Alexander coming out of college, it seems likely that the team would err on the side of caution with the 21-year-old. Despite his rookie status Alexander could conceivably start in Green Bay'a defense, which is sorely in need of a playmaker touting top-grade athleticism, as long as he achieve a healthy status by Week 1.
