Last week Thursday, despite being ruled out the Detroit Lions game, Packers cornerback Casey Hayward practiced anyway.
In his comeback from a hamstring injury that’s kept him out of every regular-season game so far for the Packers, last week’s participation in a padded practice was viewed as a step in the right direction.
When the Packers returned to the practice field this week on Wednesday, however, Hayward didn’t take part. No one has let on whether he had a setback for the team is just erring on the side of caution with their slot defender.
Hayward still hasn’t been ruled out of this weekend’s game against the Baltimore Ravens, but if he’s going to play, getting back in action would certainly be beneficial.
More will be learned when the team releases its daily injury report following practice in the afternoon.
During the morning hours, head coach Mike McCarthy makes his weekly appearance on SiriusXM NFL Radio (satellite radio) on Thursday at 10:15 a.m. CT.
