Jaire Alexander, the Green Bay Packers’ All-Pro cornerback, was placed on injured reserve with a shoulder injury on Saturday, and the team is proceeding with caution. Alexander, who has already been ruled out of Sunday’s game against the Cincinnati Bengals, will have at least three weeks to recover from his shoulder injury and see if surgery is necessary.
Jaire Alexander has been placed on injured reserve by the Packers so that he can heal from a shoulder injury
Packers coach Matt LaFleur stated Friday on the Packers website, “We got better clarity with it.” “We’re going to let it recover and see where it’s at later before we make that decision (on surgery).” We’re hoping it will mend well and he will be back with us in a few weeks.” The Packers are hoping Alexander will be able to play this season. Against Alexander, opposing quarterbacks have completed 57.9% of their throws for a 92.7 passer rating. In four games, Alexander has allowed two touchdowns and one interception in covering. He’s also made 13 tackles and intercepted three passes. In 2020, Alexander was an All-Pro because opposition quarterbacks only had a 54.3 passer rating against him. He also had 13 pass deflections and an interception. Kevin King, Eric Stokes, and Chandon Sullivan will be counted on to fill the vacancy at cornerback now that Alexander is gone. Green Bay also promoted centre Ben Braden and wide receiver Equanimeous St. Brown from the practise squad to the active roster for Sunday’s game, and activated defensive lineman Tyler Lancaster from the reserve/COVID-19 list.
Week 5 of the NFL season is now underway, with the Rams and Seahawks kicking off the new slate of games on Thursday night. Following Matt Gay’s missed extra point in the second half, those who had Rams -2.5 had to work a little harder in the second half, but you were able to cash in. You’ve come to the perfect place if you want to keep your winning streak going this weekend. We’ll compile all of the greatest picks and gambling content from CBSSports.com and SportsLine into one location each week, so you can get picks against the spread from our CBS Sports experts as well as bonus feature content for each game. Before you make your Week 5 NFL survivor choices, check out the SportsLine Projection Model to see which team it supports. This season, the model has a 124-82 record on top-rated NFL picks dating back to 2017. It also finished in the top ten on NFLPickWatch for straight-up NFL picks four times in the last five years, and beat more than 94 percent of CBS Sports Football Pick’em players four times. “Tom Brady has moved on from his New England rivalry and is now focused on bigger and better things. Even though he didn’t perform well, it has to be a relief for him in some way. Now he and the Buccaneers are in a must-win situation against a struggling opponent.
“For whatever reason, Aaron Rodgers has confessed that he dislikes playing in Cincinnati. (Being on a podcast with John Breech is a lot of fun.) You’re constantly bombarded with pro-Bengals nonsense.) The Bengals have the fifth-best defence in the NFL, according to DVOA, and are particularly strong against the run. I believe they will be able to contain Aaron Jones and A.J. Dillon. Furthermore, when Joe Mixon is out — and he should be — Cincinnati’s attack shifts from a run-first to a pass-first approach. With Tee Higgins back in the fold and Joe Burrow cooking against a secondary lacking Jaire Alexander, we could see some fireworks. “This game intrigues me because it appears to be the only game on the schedule this week in which both head coaches would want to start a quarterback other than the one they’re starting.” Due quarterback Teddy Bridgewater’s concussion last week, there’s a chance Drew Lock will play Sunday in Denver. In other words, the Broncos will either go with a banged-up Bridgewater or a quarterback in Lock, who led the Broncos to zero scores in one half of action against the Ravens.
