Jaire Alexander, DB (GB)

Getting more tests on groin

Packers head coach Matt LaFleur indicated Alexander will undergo further testing on the groin injury he suffered during Sunday's 14-12 win over the Buccaneers, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

According to Pelissero, the Packers are optimistic that the star cornerback isn't dealing with a long-term injury, but the groin issue could still put his availability for the team's Week 4 matchup with the Patriots in jeopardy. If Alexander can't play, Keisean Nixon would likely replace him as a starter at the outside corner spot opposite Eric Stokes.
