In Perry’s spot, that means more playing time for LB Erik Walden and perhaps rookie LB Dezman Moses. In Shields’ place, that could lead to a bigger role for rookie CB Casey Hayward and perhaps the first action of the season for CB Davon House.
Hayward has three interceptions in the last two games, putting him atop the league leaderboard for rookies this season, and if he steps into Shields’ starting spot he expects opposing QBs to pick on him.
“Definitely, especially when you’ve got a guy like Tramon out there, Woodson, Morgan,” Hayward said, referring to his secondary mates. “Of course they’re going to go at the rookies.”
McCarthy said Hayward got his hands on a couple of passes in practice again on Wednesday, and the coach appreciates his steady play.
“I’ve always liked the way he plays football,” McCarthy said. “He’s been given more responsibilities and he leads our team in interceptions, and that says a lot for a rookie.”
Next up in the CB rotation after Hayward could be House (pictured), who was in line to win a starting job before a shoulder injury in the preseason opener derailed those plans.
“It’s been a tough path for him to get back, and hopefully this is the week,” McCarthy said.
House, who has been practicing with a shoulder harness but has yet to be active for a game this season, could be activated for the first time and possibly see snaps in the Packers’ nickel (5 DBs), dime (6) or dollar (7) packages.
“I still go through practice at full speed, and I feel like my shoulder is the best it’s going to get right now until I get time off, and I can play at a high level,” said House, who estimated it took him a couple of weeks of practice to get used to the harness.
“I never even think about it. Today I broke up a pass today with my left (side). I reached out and batted it down without a problem. It felt good even with the harness on.”
In other injury news, neither WR Greg Jennings (groin) nor DL B.J. Raji (ankle) returned to practice on Wednesday. Both players could be tested later in the week. TE D.J. Williams (hamstring) was a limited participant after missing Sunday night’s game. RB Alex Green was also limited with a shoulder injury, but it isn’t expected to hold him back.

LB Frank Zombo and TE Andrew Quarless came off the physically unable to perform list and practiced on Wednesday for the first time this season.
That begins a three-week window during which they can practice without counting on the 53-man active roster. By the end of the next three weeks, the Packers will have to decide whether to activate them to the 53, release them, or put them on injured reserve.
The other player on PUP, T Derek Sherrod, is still not practicing.
Also sitting out Wednesday’s workout during the portion open to the media were CB Sam Shields (shin), LB Nick Perry (knee), WR Greg Jennings (groin) and DL B.J. Raji (ankle). Shields and Perry were hurt during Sunday’s game in Houston, while Jennings and Raji both missed that game.
Meanwhile, S Sean Richardson (hamstring) returned to practice after being out for several weeks.
Update: After practice, Mike McCarthy said Zombo and Quarless would work primarily on the “look” or scout teams in practice this week and then possibly move into special teams work as time goes on.
