GREEN BAY – Packers cornerback Jaire Alexander practiced for the first time on Wednesday since injuring his shoulder during Green Bay’s 27-17 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers on Oct. 3.
In his pre-practice media availability, Head Coach Matt LaFleur confirmed the All-Pro cornerback’s participation, noting Alexander would be largely limited to individual drills.
With Alexander returning to practice, the Packers now have a 21-day window to activate him back to the 53-man roster. Alexander has spent the past eight weeks on injured reserve after injuring his shoulder on a third-quarter tackle of Steelers running back Najee Harris in Green Bay’s Week 4 matchup with Pittsburgh at Lambeau Field.
“We’ll take it day by day with all those guys and we’ll see where we’re at at the end of the week,” LaFleur said. “Trust me, they want to get out there as bad as anybody.”
