Packers CB Casey Hayward Practices for Second Straight Day

Packers CB Casey Hayward Practices for Second Straight Day

For the first time this season, Packers cornerback Casey Hayward has practiced for two consecutive days, as the Packers hit the practice field for the last time before they travel to the Baltimore Ravens this weekend.

What that means for the Packers remains to be seen as the Packers defender continues to return from a hamstring injury. Hayward practiced a week ago and was still held out of the Detroit Lions game.

Regardless, Hayward at least appears to making his most progress to date.

Fellow cornerback Jarrett Bush and linebacker Andy Mulumba both practiced for the first time this week.

The Packers will release their official injury report and game-day status projections later Friday afternoon.

I'm sure the Packers will really want Hayward playing in this game, but if he just starting practicing yesterday he should probably be held out from the game. The last thing the Packers need is for Hayward to re-injure his hamstring because he was rushed back too quickly like last time.

Yeah, I figured they would rest him this week and play him next week.

From the press conference, Hayward, Starks, GVR, Jones, Mathews are all out.

Depends on the soreness Hayward feels. Last week after one practice he was really sore so playing would have been dangerous. If he gets thru 2 practices in 2 days this week w/o much soreness he'll probably be active. If he has quite a bit of soreness again, they'll keep him out another week. Right now its just a matter of how his body and the hamstring feels after practice.

Does anyone know what exactly is wrong with Stark's knee?

C's picture

Yes, it's anatomically attached to James Starks...

From the way he was hit my guess is a sprained or torn MCL but that's just a guess.

Stroh's picture

Yeah gotta be a MCL. Sprain and torn are the same thing for ligaments. Strains and tears the same for muscles and tendons. Just a little FYI for ya. Not that you would be expected to know that...

MCL is usually a 4-6 wk rehab to get on the field again. 4 weeks being pretty quick depending on the severity of course.

It will be interesting to see what transpires at seasons end in regards to the training staff personnel based on the bold moves the team has made in other areas since Thompson/McCarthy arrived. McCarthy bet his job on dismissing the defensive coaches and moving from a 4-3 to a 3-4 and began this season by addressing their league lead in sacks allowed and poor rushing stats by moving offensive lineman from side to side, both BOLD moves and both appear to have been the right call. No matter how much fault belongs to Pepper Burris he must be on the hot seat at the moment knowing the coach and GM move quickly when major issues appear.

Pepper Burris is not on the hot seat.

Agree and neither is McKenzie. If one might be and I certainly don't think he is it would be Lovat the Strength and Conditioning Coach. I don't see personnel changes in that department. As an article said, the injuries are mostly freak injuries and don't really relate to how their trained. They'll look into everything they do and might make a few small changed, but nothing drastic.

"Pepper Burris is not on the hot seat."

Way too definitive unless you're a fly on the wall. Come on. Way too much pretending. No one can possibly know this, either way.

Stroh's picture

Well he was named the best Athletic Trainer in the NFL in a recent year. So I seriously doubt the Packers would dump a guy like that just due to a rash of Hamstring injuries. I think Burris' position is Very Safe.

I'm 100 percent confident he's not on the hot seat.
