Packers head coach Matt LaFleur told reporters this afternoon that Alexander will be added to the 53-man active roster today. Green Bay had until the end of the day to either move Alexander onto the roster or shut him down for the rest of the year.
There's no guarantee when or if Alexander will play in a game this season, but this move indicates the Packers are at least optimistic he can help them in the final two contests of the regular season and/or in the playoffs.
Through the first four weeks of the 2021 season, Alexander continued to show the form that earned him his first Pro Bowl selection in 2020. The Louisville alum recorded 13 tackles, one interceptions and three passes defensed.
Alexander is one of several injured players the Packers are hoping to have back for the stretch run, including left tackle David Bakhtiari and pass rusher Za'Darius Smith.
At 12-3, Green Bay is currently the No. 1 overall seed in the NFC heading into this weekend's game against the Minnesota Vikings.
