Shark Bites

Packers CB Jaire Alexander left Sunday's win over Pittsburgh with an injury to his right shoulder. NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reports that the team believes it's to the AC joint but that Alexander will undergo further testing to determine the severity. Losing Alexander for any time would leave the Green Bay defense without its top cover man.

Packers CB Jaire Alexander (groin) is inactive for today's game against the Patriots. That would be better news for outside WRs DeVante Parker and Nelson Agholor if Brian Hoyer weren't their QB for the day.

Packers CB Jaire Alexander (groin) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Patriots. He's a low-level IDP, and New England will be forced to start Brian Hoyer at QB. So whether Alexander plays figure to have little fantasy impact.

The Packers on Wednesday activated CB Jaire Alexander. He had been on IR since suffering a Week 4 shoulder injury. It's not yet clear whether Alexander will be ready to play Sunday night against the Vikings. This week marked the deadline for either returning Alexander to the active roster or ending his season. At this point, we wouldn't bet on Alexander returning to a full-time role this week. Rasul Douglas has filled in well for a good-performing defense. We'll watch for clues as to the Week 17 plan, though.

The Packers have designated CB Jaire Alexander to return from IR. HC Matt LaFleur told reporters Wednesday that Alexander would be taking part in individual drills only, according to ESPN's Rob Demovsky. Alexander has been out since Week 4 with a shoulder injury, so we wouldn't be surprised if he's not quite ready for Sunday night's game against the Bears. Green Bay has 3 weeks now to decide whether to return their lead CB to the active roster or deactivate him for the season. When/if Alexander does return, it would likely push CB Rasul Douglas to a reserve role.

The Packers on Saturday placed CB Jaire Alexander on IR. The move is not surprising after HC Matt LaFleur said this week that they’re hoping rest will allow Alexander to avoid shoulder surgery. Alexander will miss at least 3 games. Kevin King and rookie Eric Stokes figure to start on the outside while Alexander is out
