San Francisco 49ers star linebacker Kwon Alexander was limited in practice all week due to the pectoral injury that landed him on designated to return injured reserve earlier this season. (Nick Wagoner on Twitter)

Betting Impact:

There was some doubt that Kwon would be able to return at all this season, but he was able to return for the Divisional Round. He saw his snap total decrease against the Packers due to the blowout, but the the hope is he will be able to log more than the 25 snaps he saw against the Vikings in the Super Bowl. Alexander will be needed if the 49ers hope to contain Travis Kelce and Damien Williams in the middle of the field. He will probably get a questionable tag when the 49ers release their injury report next week, but barring a setback, he is expected to play.
