The Bengals announced Friday that two players had tested positive, but the team is on bye, so they have a chance of being back in Week 10.
The COVID-19 list was created this summer for a player who either tests positive for or who has been quarantined after having been in close contact with an infected person or persons.
Players will remain on the list until they are medically cleared to return.
Alexander, 26, is a former second-round pick of the Vikings back in 2016. He’s currently in the final year of his four-year, $4.316 million contract and stands to make a base salary of $1.03 million for the 2019 season.
Alexander was testing the open market as an unrestricted free agent this offseason when he agreed to a one-year, $4 million contract with the Bengals this past March.
In 2020, Alexander has appeared in six games for the Bengals and recorded 21 tackles, no interceptions and a pass defense.
