Green Bay Packers cornerback Jaire Alexander returned to practice Wednesday for the first time since his Week 4 shoulder injury.
Coach Matt LaFleur said Alexander will do individual drills, opening the 2020 Pro Bowl selection’s 21-day window to be activated from injured reserve.
Alexander, 24, landed on IR on Oct. 9 after injuring the AC joint in his right shoulder in the third quarter of Green Bay’s 27-17 victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers on Oct. 3.
A first-round pick in 2018, Alexander has 188 tackles and five interceptions in 48 career games (46 starts). He has 13 tackles and one pick this season.
Coming off their bye week, the Packers (9-3) host the NFC North rival Chicago Bears (4-8) on Sunday night. Green Bay won the first meeting this season, 24-14, at Soldier Field in Week 6.
