The Green Bay Packers could have a boost in their secondary this week as one player who missed their Week 4 loss to the Detroit Lions is back to practice Tuesday.
The Packers have been without several key starters on offensive and defense to start the season. The Packers should be getting offensive lineman Elgton Jenkins back for their game against the Las Vegas Raiders on Monday Night Football.
They could have Alexander back for Week 5 as well.

According to Matt Schneidman with The Athletic, Alexander was back to practice Tuesday.
Elgton Jenkins, Jaire Alexander, Aaron Jones, Christian Watson, Luke Musgrave and Zach Tom are all practicing ahead of Monday night in Vegas.
De’Vondre Campbell, Jon Runyan Jr., Rudy Ford and Zayne Anderson are not.

It’s unclear if Alexander will play against the Raiders. Due to the nature of it being a back injury, his status could fluctuate this week.
With Eric Stokes designated to return from the PUP list, Stokes could join Alexander for the first time all season. That would make the Packers’ secondary much better than it’s been in the early season.
