“He looked good, he was flying around,” Bradford said.
Alexander had four catches for 72 yards and a 38-yard touchdown against the Chargers in Week 6, his only extensive action. He was injured in practice in late October and underwent a fifth procedure on his left knee to remove torn cartilage.
Alexander said he probably would have had to have surgery after the season in any case, and feels better now than anytime prior to the injury.
Philip Rivers threw four touchdown passes against the Broncos secondary on Monday night.
“Their secondary is kind of struggling a little bit,” Alexander said. “We’re going to try to go out and be explosive against them.”
Offensive tackle Rodger Saffold also practiced and anticipates playing Sunday at Denver. Saffold, a rookie who won the left tackle job in training camp, aggravated a left shoulder injury late in last week’s loss to the Falcons.
“I’ve been dealing with this for a while,” Saffold said. “They always try to attack that outside shoulder when they’re trying to get around the edge, so I’m having to deal with a lot of that.”
Spagnuolo said Saffold took “a steady diet” of plays on Wednesday.
