GREEN BAY, Wis. - The Green Bay Packers activated cornerback Jaire Alexander off injured reserve Wednesday, Dec. 29.
Alexander has been out since he injured his shoulder in a 27-17 victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers in October. He made the Pro Bowl and earned second-team honors in All-Pro balloting last season.
In other moves, the Packers placed four players on the reserve/COVID-19 list: safety Henry Black, punter Corey Bojorquez, tight end Tyler Davis and defensive lineman Kingsley Keke.
