From Green Bay Packers practice on Thursday:
Just like last Thursday CB Casey Hayward (hamstring) was on the field for the pads practice.Didn't play last week. We'll see about this week

As Demovsky notes, just because Hayward practiced a week ago didn't mean anything for his game-day status when he sat out of the game against the Detroit Lions.
The difference this week, however, is that Hayward has been yet to be ruled out for Sunday's game against the Baltimore Ravens whereas last week at this time he was already declared out.
Hayward has yet to play during the 2013 regular season due to a hamstring injury that he originally aggravated shortly before training camp.
The Packers are missing the big-play ability they got from Hayward's six interceptions a year ago. Currently Green Bay is negative-two in turnover ratio this season in part due to forcing very few on the defensive side of the football.
Hamstring injuries continue to plague the Packers defensive this season with linebacker Brad Jones set to miss the Week 6 game and cornerback Jarrett Bush limited by injury as well.
Safety Morgan Burnett, linebacker Clay Matthews and fullback John Kuhn have all come back from hamstring injuries suffered earlier in the year.
Head coach Mike McCarthy will give an update during his press conference later Thursday afternoon.
UPDATE: Hayward was officially listed as a limited, not full, participant in Thursday's practice.
