Hayward and House Start Season on the Sidelines

Hayward and House Start Season on the Sidelines

Cornerbacks Casey Hayward and Davon House are not practicing as the Green Bay Packers opened training camp on Friday.

When seven players were reported to be on the team's active/Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list on Thursday, it could be viewed as a surprise that any other players (including Hayward and House) would be sitting out of today's session.

Players are coming off a month-plus layoff following the end of the team's offseason program in mid-June, so expectations are that they come in healthy.

The absence of Hayward is particularly unexpected given that he was a full participant in the team's offseason program, at least in practices open to the public. No information has been released as to the nature of Hayward's absence, but head coach Mike McCarthy should give an update at this post-practice press conference.

House was relegated to the sidelines for the entirety of the team's offseason program following offseason shoulder surgery. The third-year cornerback did indicate on social media a few days ago that he was sick.

Seeing as neither player was listed on the team's PUP list, there's a good chance their injuries, or whatever is preventing them from practicing, is relatively minor.

In their absence, Jarrett Bush and rookie Micah Hyde look to get increased reps and should see themselves a step higher up the depth chart, particularly at the slot cornerback position.

UPDATE: Mike McCarthy indicated during his press conference that Hayward suffered a hamstring injury while away from the Packers facilities this summer and will miss a few weeks.

I was with you until the last paragraph Brian. I can't see how this will allow JB and MH to step up the depth chart. Unless Hayward and House are off the team, those two won't overtake their spot on the chart.
