According to ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter, Alexander has recovered quicker than expected and may be available to play in the team’s divisional round game.
Alexander recorded 34 tackles in eight games before suffering his injury.
Beyond just getting Alexander back, the Niners will also likely see the return of pass rusher Dee Ford next weekend.
Ford sat out of the team’s last three regular season outings due quad and hamstring ailments. On the season he has recorded 6.5 sacks.
