Packers CB Jaire Alexander suspended for Vikings matchup after coin toss incident

Green Bay Packers cornerback Jaire Alexander has been suspended by the team for Sunday night's must-win showdown against Justin Jefferson and the Minnesota Vikings

The decision stems from, but wasn't limited to, Alexander appointing himself a captain for the Packers' 33-30 Christmas Eve win at Carolina

It's never for one thing," said coach Matt LaFleur, who made the decision with general manager Brian Gutekunst

I think there's a lot of lessons along the way from everybody involved and, hopefully, we learn from them. I think we will. I think there will be probably better communication moving forward

Alexander was suspended one game for "conduct detrimental to the team," the club said in a statement

The decision to suspend a player is never easy and not one we take lightly," Gutekunst said in a statement
