Casey Hayward will miss multiple weeks for Packers

Casey Hayward, Devin Hester AP

It’s looking more and more like 2013 is going to be a lost season for Packers cornerback Casey Hayward.

Hayward missed the first six games of the season with a hamstring injury and then suffered an aggravation of the injury during the Week 10 loss to the Eagles. On Thursday, coach Mike McCarthy said, via Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, that Hayward will miss multiple weeks as a result.

That leaves Sam Shields, Tramon Williams, Davon House and Micah Hyde at corner for the Packers for this weekend’s date with the Giants. They’ll be trying to do a better job of getting the Packers defense off the field late in games while also trying to exploit Eli Manning’s penchant for turning the ball over.

McCarthy also said tackle Don Barclay isn’t feeling as good as the team hoped he’d feel after suffering a knee injury last weekend. Center Evan Dietrich-Smith has been practicing after his own knee injury, so any shuffling up front will likely be more limited than it was last weekend.

    That’s weird. A Packer missing time. This team’s softer than their beloved cheese.

    This team has had to endure the biggest hit of casualties in both quantity and quality the league has ever known.

    Yikes!

    Last year they used the term “soft” to describe the Pack D. I think it applies just as much this year.

    Here’s the deal. Teddy has drafted smallish dbacks from the 5,6,7th rounds and found a couple of un drafteds to suit up as well and were expecting them to be bone crushing tacklers, great cover guys, closers.

    These guys couldn’t get off the field for 7 and 8 minute drives respectively the past two games.

    They are what they are, smalish poor tackling cover guys who are easily confused with complete pass formations and give up a ton of yardage because they just can’t play the positions.

    It makes you wonder how they are able to keep hold of the top defensive ranking in the NFC North with all these injuries.

    Dealing with injuries year after year and yet the Packers are still the class of the NFC North. What does that say about the other three organizations?

    Have you seen the Bears D, nuff said, and the Lions secondary yeah that may answer your question.

    filthymc, they made Josh McCown look like Tom Brady. Give me a break!

    aldante66, Smallish defensive backs? Name one DB on the Green Bay Packers team under 5’11 190 pounds.

    The Packers are extremely fragile this year

  10. deltaoracle says: Nov 14, 2013 4:23 PM

    Yeah that darned Thompson is no good. He should have had Andrew Luck ready to step in for Rodgers and should have had a bunch of first round DBs all set too. Okay he got guys like Rodgers and Nelson and Matthews and Cobb and Lacy, but why doesn’t he have a full roster of #1 players? What – is he drafting near the end of every round most of the time? Are there 31 other teams trying to get some of the good players too? Come on Ted, step it up already!!!

    A little history lesson. What happened the last time GB had so many injuries and lost Aaron Rodgers for at least one game due to injury?

    That’s right, they went 10-6, lucked into the playoffs as a 6th seed, then ran the table to their 4th Lombardi trophy. Coincidently that’s 4 more Lombardi trophies than the Vikngs have and it equals the number of times the Vikings have lost the SB. LOL! Embrace the Suck Queens.

    Clearly, this is the formula for success in Green Bay. Since going 15-1 only leads to getting blown out at home by a 9-7 team in the divisional round of the playoffs, I guess it makes sense. I’ll be looking forward to the Packers’ inevitable Super Bowl victory this season.

    HAHA every Packer post should start like that. “A little history lesson” Classic

    See us Viking fans have accepted our fate as a team with a poor record that will be drafting early. We are, in fact, embracing it. Its a better fate than having delusional Super Bowl hopes with a team unfit for any round of the playoffs

    As the Packers deftly maneuver through this season of extreme adversity, I find myself humbled by my fellow Packer fans and the grace and class they demonstrate in the face of such incredible odds.

    Perhaps some cellar dwelling degenerate Viking fans will take some inspiration from the fine example you people set.

    That is — except the round where they wipe the Vikings.

    Another year of Rodgers prime down the drain.

    Feeling alot like the Favre-years.

  18. Jikky Jax says: Nov 14, 2013 5:44 PM

    Sam Shields, Tramon Williams, Davon House and Micah Hyde.

    ————-

    Those are some pretty good names. I wouldn’t mind a couple of those guys for my vikes. We’re getting Chris Cook back though.. Yay!

    You can’t really teach Viking fans much about history. They’ve been repeating it every year for over half a century.

    I still blame VY.
    It’s the VY bad luck mojo – he’s a walking Madden Cover Jinx.

    He jinxed the Dream Team eagles – he’s the reason our 2013 squad is so battered with injuries.

    Which ranking?

    All I know is that the Pack is in last place (in the entire NFL) in the rankings for INT’s with a total of only 3 all season (Bears have 12, Lions 11 and the Vikes 8).

    The Bears lead the NFL in forced fumbles (15 compared to the Packers 9).

    Detroit is tied for 9th in TD’s allowed in the NFL (21 compared to the Packers 26).

    Bottom line – the Packers are suckin’ air right now on defense.

    When Rodgers comes back for the Vikings game, the Vikings fans will pipe down a little. (Vikings fans still think Rodgers snapped his colarbone in 10 pieces a couple weeks back).

    Isn’t Asmougha walking around somewhere? I thought he was let go over in SF. He must not be showing much, but the right situation might bring him back around. Bring him in for a look, Ted.

    Stinks. Hayward looked like he had a lot of potential. Smart enough to play for Vanderbilt and enough talent to play in the SEC.
