Packers: Jaire Alexander will play vs. Giants in London
Green Bay Packers cornerback Jaire Alexander is set to return from injury in Week 5 versus the New York Giants.
Star cornerback Jaire Alexander is set to make his return from injury when the Green Bay Packers take on the New York Giants in London.
After practicing in full two days in a row, the Packers removed Alexander from their Week 5 injury report.
Packers vs. Giants: Jaire Alexander will play, Adrian Amos questionable
The Packers will get Alexander back, but they have listed three players as questionable on the injury report.
Safety Adrian Amos, safety Tariq Carpenter, and defensive tackle Devonte Wyatt are all questionable for Week 5.
Amos is in the concussion protocol. He was a limited participant during Thursday and Friday’s practice, so hopefully he will be able to return. If not, Rudy Ford will likely start next to Darnell Savage at safety.
Carpenter, who is dealing with an abdomen injury, was limited at practice all week.
Wyatt was limited on Wednesday but didn’t practice on Thursday or Friday, per the injury report. He is dealing with a quadricep injury.
Outside of those three injuries, every other player on the active roster is available to play at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Sunday.
The New York Giants are dealing with a lot of injuries.
They have already ruled out seven players for this game: defensive back Cor’Dale Flott, wide receiver Kenny Golladay, defensive lineman Henry Mondeaux, linebacker Azeez Ojulari, wide receiver Wan’Dale Robinson, quarterback Tyrod Taylor, and wide receiver Kadarius Toney.
Defensive lineman Leonard Williams is questionable.
With so many injuries at wide receiver, the Giants will likely lean on their run game. Saquon Barkley is the NFL leader in rushing yards.
If the Packers can stop Barkley, they will have a great chance of winning the game and improving to 4-1.
