Packers activating Jaire Alexander from IR

The Packers have a Wednesday deadline to activate cornerback Jaire Alexander from the injured reserve list or shut him down for the season and head coach Matt LaFleur revealed their decision at his press conference.

LaFleur said that Alexander will be activated. He has missed 11 games with a shoulder injury.

The move does not mean that Alexander will be in the lineup against the Vikings this weekend, however. Alexander is still working his way back and Wednesday’s move will give him a chance to continue that work while leaving the door open for him to play at some point in the regular season or playoffs.

Alexander had 13 tackles and an interception before going on injured reserve.

  1. Big deal. tell us when he and bact can play not how they may play in the future. Neither of them are worth a darn right now, and bact my two cents is your’ve seen the best of him already.
    He will be another Bulaga, in and out in and out and finally out with recurring injuries.
    To miss a big part of one season and almost the entire second season and your still not healed is not a good sign of a comeback.

  2. Welcome back Ja! Too bad Thielen is out and Diggs is gone – you could have remade that one play where you knocked them both into last week with that one hit. That was awesome even to Vikes fans.

  3. Just in time! If it wasn’t for Rasul Douglas making clutch interceptions, Packers may have gone 1-3 in the past 4 games instead of 4-0. We need playmakers back on the field, and that includes Mr. Bakhtiari

  4. With him back the Packers have a wealth of talent at the corner position! Jaire, Stokes and Douglas.

  5. I just don’t get the luke warm comments,….why the negativity?

    Imagine a healthy Stokes, Douglas AND Alexander in that secondary…. Suddenly, the scary WR groupings of Rams, Bucs and Cowboys don’t look so scary.
