Alexander recorded 27 tackles (23 solo), a forced fumble and five pass deflections over seven games in the 2023 season.
It was a peculiar season for Alexander, who missed nine games with injury and another due to a team-imposed suspension, but he was out there during the playoffs, and his presence was key for Green Bay's defense. A healthy Alexander -- the league's highest-paid cornerback -- would go a long way toward the Packers being more effective on the defensive side of the ball in 2024.
Alexander (ankle) is active for Saturday's NFC divisional-round game against the 49ers, Mike Spofford of the Packers' official site reports.
Despite logging back-to-back DNP's to finish the week, Alexander is set to suit up Saturday. He played through an ankle injury in Green Bay's 48-32 wild-card win over Dallas and finished with seven tackles (three solo) and an interception.
Alexander (ankle) is considered questionable to play Saturday versus the 49ers, Wes Hodkiewicz of the Packers official website reports.
Alexander played through his ankle injury in the team's 48-32 wild-card win over the Cowboys, intercepting a pass in the contest. Considering he was unable to practice Thursday, it places some doubt on his chances to go Saturday in Santa Clara, so his status is worth monitoring ahead of the game.
Alexander (ankle) isn't practicing Wednesday, Ryan Wood of USA Today reports.
Alexander injured his ankle in a walk-through prior to Sunday's 48-32 wild-card round win over Dallas, then aggravated the injury during the game, though he made an impact before his exit with an interception. Coach Matt LaFleur was hopeful that Alexander would be able to practice Thursday, and a return at that point would put Alexander on track to suit up Saturday in the divisional round against the 49ers.

Alexander left the game with about five minutes remaining in the third quarter and never returned. The All-Pro corner spent roughly five hours a day in the training room leading up to the game Sunday receiving treatment on his ankle to take the field, and will likely continue to receive that treatment this week, according to head coach Matt LaFleur. Although Alexander stated after that game that he felt OK, he'll likely be considered questionable in the days ahead leading up to their Saturday matchup with the 49ers.
Alexander (ankle) is active Sunday against the Cowboys.
Alexander logged back-to-back DNPs after starting the practice week with a limited session. The All-Pro corner's ability to take the field for the wild-card matchup with Dallas is of course good news for their defense. The 26-year-old will likely be key in the Packers' attempts to contain CeeDee Lamb and the Cowboys' passing attack Sunday.
Alexander (ankle) is listed as questionable ahead of Sunday's game against the Cowboys, Ryan Wood of USA Today reports.
Alexander was a non-participant in Green Bay's practice for the second consecutive day, but he's still got a chance at suiting up in the wild-card round. Head coach Matt LeFleur told reporters Friday that the Packers will give Alexander as much time as they can to figure out if he's available and he'll be a true game-time decision come Sunday, per Wood. If the All-Pro cornerback is unable to go for Green Bay's playoff game, expect Keisean Nixon and Corey Ballentine to shoulder increased workloads in the team's secondary.
Alexander (ankle) didn't participate in Thursday's practice, Wes Hodkiewicz of the Packers' official site reports.
According to head coach Matt LeFleur, Alexander sustained this ankle injury in a "freak" accident in Wednesday's walk-through, rolling his ankle by stepping on someone else's foot, per Hodkiewicz. LeFleur added that Alexander is doing everything in his power to play in Sunday's wild-card game against the Cowboys, and the cornerback is being viewed as day-to-day for the time being. Alexander has struggled to stay on the field this season, appearing in just seven games due to back and shoulder injuries while also missing the Week 17 win over the Vikings due to a team-imposed suspension.
Alexander (shoulder/ankle) was estimated as a limited participant in Wednesday's practice walkthrough.
Alexander returned from a one-game suspension to play all 46 of Green Bay's defensive snaps Week 18 against Chicago. He's been dealing with a shoulder issue since early November and missed six games because of it, though it's not certain that his current injury is related. Assuming Alexander is able to suit up in Sunday's wild-card contest versus the Cowboys, his presence will be key in trying to slow down CeeDee Lamb and Dallas' pass attack.
