The New Orleans Saints officially placed LB Kwon Alexander on injured reserve Monday and activated WR Jake Kumerow from the exempt list.

Kwon Alexander

This shouldn’t come as a surprise, considering that Alexander suffered a torn Achilles last week that will cost him the remainder of the season.

Alexander, 26, is a former fourth-round pick of the Buccaneers back in 2015. He played out the final year of his four-year, $2,758,320 contract before agreeing to a four-year contract worth $54 million with the 49ers in 2019. 

He was traded to the Saints earlier this season for LB Kiko Alonso and a conditional fifth-round pick.

In 2020, Alexander has appeared in 11 games for the 49ers and Saints, recording 54 tackles, one sack, two forced fumbles, and four pass deflections.
