The Packers will be missing three defensive backs who play regular roles for the club in Sunday’s game vs. Washington.

Starting free safety Morgan Burnett, cornerback/special-teamer Jarrett Bush and cornerback Casey Hayward are all inactive with hamstring injuries, the club said Sunday.

Hayward, who intercepted six passes in 2012, had already been ruled out for his second consecutive game. However, Burnett and Bush were both questionable on the injury report.

M.D. Jennings and Jerron McMillian will get the call at safety for Green Bay with Burnett out. The Packers also have Chris Banjo in reserve.

With Hayward and Bush out, the Packers’ corners are starters Tramon Williams and Sam Shields and backups Davon House and Micah Hyde.

Rain is expected to be a factor in Sunday’s game at Lambeau Field, according to WeatherUnderground.com.

    Does it matter? Has anyone ever heard of these guys in college? They are mostly very late round draft picks, who are cheap as players that TT wants to save a buck.
    There were some good free agents TT passed on and will continue to pass on to save a dime brother.
    Redskins will pass pass pass and have a field day today. Packers start 0-5

    Did anyone hear of them in college? No, but I did hear about Hayward when he lead rookies in interceptions last year. The Redskins are a good team but if RG3 keeps sailing his throws I hope that they do keep passing.

    Bush sitting out actually probably helps our secondary, Packers win 35-24.

    Imma was right… field day passing. 335 in the first half. Wrong team though.
