Alexander signed a reserve/future contract with the Lions on Monday.
Alexander (6-foot-1, 196 pounds) is an intriguing athlete who recorded a 4.35-second time in the 40-yard dash to go along with a 37.5-inch vertical at his pro day last spring. He's already had a couple of stints with the Lions since going undrafted out of Franklin last year, and he figures to have a respectable chance of making the team, given the make-up of the current roster. While that sentiment could change if Detroit acquires more talent at wideout behind entrenched starters Kenny Golladay and Marvin Jones (knee) this offseason, the Lions likely have greater needs to fill at other positions, which could possibly leave the team to turn to in-house options for depth.
Alexander (undisclosed) joined Detroit's practice squad Saturday.
Alexander was waived off injured reserve in August and now rejoins the team for the final weeks of the regular season. The 22-year-old seems headed for an offseason with the Lions after being signed as an undrafted free agent back in May.
Alexander (undisclosed) cleared waivers and reverted to injured reserve, according to the league's official transaction log.
Alexander was waived Friday with an undisclosed injury. Barring an injury settlement, he's likely stuck on IR throughout the end of the league year.
Alexander was waived with an injury designation Friday.
It isn't clear what sort of injury Alexander is dealing with. Should he clear waivers, the receiver will revert to injured reserve.
