According to Adam Schefter, reports that the 49ers believe LB Kwon Alexander has a “good chance” returning from his torn pectoral muscle and playing in the next week’s playoff game.
Schefter also states, Alexander defied expectations in his recovery time, much like Texans DE J.J. Watt has. Watt was able to suit up and play for the Texans yesterday against the Bills in the WildCard Game.
Schefter also states, that there is a risk if Alexander plays, but he believes that it is worth it if he plays.
The 49ers designated Alexander to return from IR last week.
