Packers sign Rasul Douglas, hope to avoid surgery for Jaire Alexander

Update: Green Bay Packers head coach Matt LaFleur told reporters Wednesday that the team is going to try avoid surgery "at all costs" that likely would end star defensive back Jaire Alexander's season.

LaFleur didn't say how much time Alexander might miss. Alexander did not practice Wednesday, and LaFleur said Alexander is "most likely" out for Sunday's Week 5 matchup with the Cincinnati Bengals. There is hope - per mutiple reports - that the injury could be short term and Alexander could play with a brace.

The Packers did sign cornerback Rasul Douglas on Wednesday off of the Arizona Cardinals' practice squad.
