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.
