Mike Spofford, Packer’s senior writer, announced moments ago Packer’s CB Jaire Alexander will sit today. The Packers believe Jaire is healthy enough to play but will sit Alexander today out of caution. Packers are also sitting Tackle Rasheed Walker, Guard Sean Rhyan, Wide Receiver Samori Toure, and Defensive Lineman Jonathan Ford.

Rookie Christian Watson is a go today, along with AJ Dillon, who was on the injury report this week. Watson has yet to score a touchdown to begin his NFL career, but is expected to have an increased role today. Keisean Nixon replaced Jaire Alexander last week when Alexander left the game. Nixon had several big plays on defense, including a forced fumble in the 1st half and excellent coverage on the game’s last drive. No word on New England’s injury report.
