Packers Place CB Jaire Alexander On COVID-19 List

The Green Bay Packers announced right before the start of Sunday night’s game against the Vikings that they’ve placed CB Jaire Alexander on the COVID-19 list. 

Jaire Alexander

Alexander has been recovering from a sprained AC joint in his shoulder. The team elected to avoid season-ending surgery in the hopes he’d be able to make it back. 

Green Bay activated Alexander from injured reserve last week. 

Alexander, 24, is the former 18th overall selection in the 2018 NFL Draft by the Packers. He was entering the fourth year of a four-year, $12.050 million dollar rookie deal that included a $6.844 million dollar signing bonus before Green Bay picked up his option.

Alexander is set to make a base salary of $13.294 million, fully guaranteed, in 2022 under the fifth-year option. 

In 2021, Alexander has appeared in four games for the Packers, recording 13 tackles, three pass deflections, and one interception.
