Green Bay Packers: Matt LaFleur Reveals True Reason Behind Jaire Alexander’s 6-Game Absence

The Green Bay Packers have been without Pro Bowl cornerback Jaire Alexander for each of the past six games. The two-time Second Team All Pro injured his shoulder against the Los Angeles Rams and has yet to return to the field despite being able to practice. Green Bay is 3-3 in these six games.

Many have been wondering why Alexander isn’t playing during games for weeks. They contend that if the injury was so serious, why couldn’t the team have put him on injured reserve? There has been a rupture between Alexander and the coaching staff, according to conspiracy theorists in the media and within the fan base.

Unfortunately, Alexander’s removal of his Instagram posts on the Packers furthered this notion.However, it should be mentioned that he does this annually and that he is shown wearing a Packers jersey in his profile photo.

Nevertheless, the absence of Alexander has generated a lot of discussion among people outside the Packers locker room. Head coach Matt LaFleur disclosed the true reason their top cornerback hasn’t seen the field at his news conference today, and it does not bode well for their ability to evaluate injuries.

The Green Bay Packers “Miscalculated” How Bad the Jaire Alexander Injury Was

Alexander had previously had to battle with a severe shoulder ailment. Due to an injury to the same shoulder that is bothering him today, he missed the majority of 2021. For whatever reason, the Packers decided that his second shoulder injury, which kept him out of action for the most of 2021, was not severe enough to merit a spell on injured reserve:

Every football fan understands that tackling requires the shoulder, and Alexander must tackle in order to be a defender. He’s been able to train since the NFL forbade tackling during warm-ups in an attempt to protect players’ health.

Alexander’s contract includes a per-game incentive, which should also be disclosed. He has missed more than $400,000. This season, he has missed a lot of games.

Stated differently, he would play if he could. If Alexander were totally healthy, he would have no personal or financial motivation to sit out games.
