What had happened was that Jaire Alexander missed the last two games against the New Orleans Saints and the Detroit Lions due to his back injury. Alexander sustained the injury in week 2. The tweet from Schneidman suggests that Jaire Alexander will be playing against the Raiders. There is another angle to this story that involves the Raiders WR Davante Adams who also suffered with an injured shoulder.

Apparently, the Raiders will welcome Davante Adams back on the field against the Packers. This is paramount because, at some point in time, Davante Adams used to pay with the Packers when he moved on to play with the Raiders starting the 2022 season. Now that both the teams have their injured pieces back, the match would be interesting to watch.

Maybe the Raiders will do what the Cowboys tried to do with the Patriots, that is, get as much information regarding the Packers’ offense and defense from the Raiders’ wide receiver.

The Davante Adams lore

Adams started his NFL career with the Packers back in 2014, but it wasn’t till the 2016 season that his career started taking flight. The WR scored 12 touchdowns in a season and would continue to keep this double-digit momentum for the upcoming season with the Packers. In 2020, he scored a whopping 18 touchdowns in a season and stayed on the same trajectory even after switching sides.
