The Packers exercised the fifth-year option on Alexander's rookie contract Friday, Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com reports.
This was a no-brainer decision for a player who already has developed into an All-Pro talent and recorded 41 defensed passes through three seasons. Alexander now is locked in with the Packers through the 2022 campaign, when he'll earn $13.3 million.
Alexander (knee/hand) won't carry an injury tag into Sunday's game versus the Bears, Wes Hodkiewicz of the Packers' official site reports.
Alexander logged a trio of limited practices this week and has been given the green light for Week 12. The third-year corner out of Louisville has given up just 247 yards and one touchdown in coverage this season. He'll likely draw a difficult task in shadow coverage against Allen Robinson, who will be catching the ball from Mitchell Trubisky this week.
Alexander (knee/hand) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice.
Alexander has dealt with the hand injury for a better part of this season, but the knee injury is of some concern. It's encouraging that he was still able to practice Wednesday, though, as a critical NFC North showdown against the Bears is on tap Sunday. If he suffers a setback and can't play, Kevin King will operate as the No. 1 cornerback, while Chandon Sullivan (ribs) could start on the outside as well.
Alexander (concussion/hand) has been cleared for Sunday's game versus the Colts, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.
After practicing without limitations for a second straight day, Alexander has officially cleared the league's five-step concussion protocol and will return to his starting cornerback position Sunday. The 2018 first-round pick is enjoying a breakout season as a lockdown cornerback, as he's given up just 176 receiving yards and one touchdown through eight games of handling opponents' best receivers.
Alexander (concussion/hand) was listed as a full participant for the Packers' practice session Thursday.
Alexander improved from limited to full practice participation between Wednesday and Thursday, though he has not yet been officially cleared from concussion protocol. If able to get over that hurdle, Alexander would be in line for his ninth start of the season Week 11. The Louisville product is holding opponents to a career-low 68.3 passer rating when targeted in coverage this season, and he's seemingly trending in the direction of an active designation for a Sunday matchup against the Colts.
Alexander (concussion/hand) was a limited participant during Wednesday's practice, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Per Matt Schneidman of The Athletic, Alexander is still in concussion protocol, but the team is hoping to have him available for Sunday's game against the Colts. The Louisville product missed last week's win over Jacksonville with the concussion, and he'll need to gain full medical clearance before being granted a return. If he were to miss Week 11, Kevin King, Josh Jackson and Chandon Sullivan would work as the team's top cornerbacks.
Alexander (concussion) is inactive for Sunday's game versus Jacksonville.
The 23-year-old was considered doubtful for Sunday's contest, so his absence was to be expected. The Packers will be without their top-two cornerbacks Week 10, as Kevin King (quadriceps) is missing his fifth straight contest. Chandon Sullivan, Josh Jackson and Ka'dar Hollman figure to work as Green Bay's top corners against the Jaguars.
Alexander (concussion) is doubtful for Sunday's game against Jacksonville, per coach Matt LaFleur, Matt Schneidman of The Athletic reports.
A silver lining is that there's precedent this season of players clearing concussion protocol and suiting up despite doubtful tags, such as Bears wide receiver Allen Robinson in Week 8. Still, the Packers are preparing to play without Alexander, which will likely mean more playing time for Chandon Sullivan. If Alexander's unable to recover by Sunday, his next opportunity to take the field will be in Week 11 against the Colts.
Alexander (concussion) didn't participate in Wednesday's practice, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.
Alexander remains in concussion protocol after absorbing a hit to the head in last Thursday's win over the 49ers. It's unclear if the 23-year-old cornerback has made any progress, but his status for this week's game against the Jaguars is in question. If Alexander sits out, Kevin King (quadriceps) likely will serve as the No. 1 cornerback as long as he's cleared to play.
Alexander (concussion) has been ruled out to return to Thursday's game against the 49ers.
Alexander suffered a concussion in the first quarter of Thursday's game, a development which will leave the Packers without both top cornerbacks for the rest of the night, given that Kevin King (quadriceps) is inactive. In order to retake the field Nov. 15 versus Jacksonville, Alexander will first need to gain full medical clearance.
Alexander has exited Thursday night's matchup against the 49ers and is being evaluated for a concussion.
Alexander absorbed a knee to the helmet while ushering Jerick McKinnon out of bounds on a second-quarter rush play for San Francisco. He pulled himself from the game and was promptly taken to the locker room for evaluation. Losing the 2018 first-round draft choice for the remainder of the contest would be a sizeable loss, as Alexander ranks as Pro Football Focus' No. 1 cornerback through eight weeks of the 2020 season.
Alexander (hand/knee) put in a full practice session Thursday, Matt Schneidman of The Athletic reports.
Despite dealing with repeated early-season stints on the injury report, Alexander has played through the pain and remained a formidable presence in the Green Bay secondary. Alexander has already recorded a safety, an interception and two tackles for loss, holding opposing QBs to a measly 70.2 passer rating when targeting him in coverage this season. He's trending towards a fifth consecutive start to kick off 2020, as Green Bay's secondary prepares to face a Buccaneers receiving corps that may get back Chris Godwin (hamstring) from a two-week absence.
Alexander (hand/knee) was limited in Wednesday's practice.
Alexander played through both injuries in Week 4 against the Falcons, and despite enjoying a Week 5 bye, he's still hampered. Considering he's still practicing, there's no major concern about the cornerback's status for this Sunday's road matchup against the Buccaneers. Alexander has been excellent this season, allowing just 5.0 yards per target and a 70.2 passer rating through four games.
Alexander (hand/knee) has been cleared to play in Monday's matchup with the Falcons.
Alexander popped up on the Packers' injury report after missing Saturday's practice, but it looks like the team was just exercising caution with starting cornerback. He figures to have his hands full with both Julio Jones and Calvin Ridley also being active despite nursing hamstring injuries.
Alexander (hand/knee) is on track to play Monday versus the Falcons, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.
Alexander didn't practice Saturday with what appeared to be a new knee injury, so it's encouraging that he'll likely play Monday, especially with Julio Jones and Calvin Ridley coming to town. His official status will be revealed around 90 minutes before Monday's 8:50 p.m. ET kickoff.
Alexander (hand/knee) is questionable for Monday's game versus the Falcons.
Alexander played through the hand injury in the Week 3 win over the Saints and was a full participant in practice Thursday and Friday, but the knee injury is new and caused him to sit out of Saturday's session. It's concerning, especially with a game against the Falcons' elite passing attack, and we may not know his final status until 90 minutes before Monday's 8:15 p.m. ET kickoff. If he's unable to play, Chandon Sullivan will bump to the outside or Josh Jackson will see an uptick in usage.
Alexander was added to the injury report with a hand injury but will be active for Sunday's game versus the Lions, Wes Hodkiewcz of the Packers' official site reports.
This injury is apparently so minor that Alexander wasn't even given a questionable tag, so this shouldn't concern fantasy gamers. Alexander enjoyed a superb opener to his third NFL season, as he recorded five tackles, a safety, a pass breakup and an interception versus the Vikings, and he'll look to follow it up in a second straight divisional matchup. With Kenny Golladay (hamstring) out for the Lions, Alexander will likely be in charge of covering Marvin Jones.
Alexander recorded five tackles (four solo), a sack, a safety and an interception in Sunday's victory over the Vikings.
Alexander made a couple huge plays in the second quarter of Sunday's contest, first sacking Kirk Cousins in the end zone and then picking him off on the Vikings' half of the field two drives later. Alexander generated some buzz over the offseason as a player on the rise, and that should become even more pronounced after his Week 1 performance.
Coach Matt LaFleur singled out Alexander (thumb) on Monday as a player he's excited to get back on the field for training camp, Wes Hodkiewicz of the Packer's official site reports.
LaFleur's comments serve as a hint that Alexander, who broke his right thumb in the NFC Championship Game, isn't in line for any limitations when training camp kicks off. He also named Alexander as a player who's excelled in virtual meetings, despite the difficulties of a shortened in-person offseason. The Packers clearly expect big things from a fully healthy Alexander heading into Year 3, with defensive backs coach Jerry Gray having compared the 23-year-old's physicality to former All Pro Samari Rolle, and his vision to three-time Pro Bowler DeAngelo Hall.
Alexander said following Sunday's NFC Championship Game loss to the 49ers that he broke his right thumb, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Alexander was spotted in a cast and noted that an X-ray had revealed the extent of his injury. The 2018 first-rounder also said that he doesn't plan to undergo surgery to address the issue. While a timetable for Alexander's recovery has yet to be disclosed, if the cornerback does indeed avoid a procedure, it's reasonable to expect him to be available in some capacity for the start of OTAs.
