Packers place cornerback Jaire Alexander on injured reserve

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — The Green Bay Packers have placed star cornerback Jaire Alexander on injured reserve.

The move means Alexander must miss at least the next three games.

Alexander hurt a shoulder in a 27-17 victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Coach Matt LaFleur has said he's hopeful that Alexander will avoid surgery and could "be back with us in a matter of weeks."

Alexander made the Pro Bowl and earned second-team honors in All-Pro balloting last season.

The Packers visit Cincinnati on Sunday in a matchup of teams with 3-1 records.
