CB Casey Hayward still out; more on injuries

CB Casey Hayward

CB Casey Hayward

Packers CB Casey Hayward has been ruled out for the third straight week to start the 2013 season with a hamstring injury, so the earliest Hayward could see the field this season will come after next week’s bye.

“He just tells me he’s making progress,” Head Coach Mike McCarthy said. “He had a similar injury. This one wasn’t supposed to be as bad as when he hurt it the first time, the day before he came back for training camp, so he’s making progress.”

Hayward missed the first three full weeks of training camp before returning to practice, but then he aggravated the hamstring when he tried to play in the third preseason game vs. Seattle, on Aug. 23. He has not practiced since.

Also missing practice on Wednesday were CB Jarrett Bush (hamstring), FB John Kuhn (hamstring), RB Eddie Lacy (concussion) and TE Jermichael Finley (toe). Finley was on the report last week and rested the toe at times and then still played in the game on Sunday.

S Morgan Burnett (hamstring) practiced on a limited basis, but in the portion of the workout open to reporters, he was doing jog-thru work on the scout team, so he may be held out until after the bye week as well.

DE Johnny Jolly is also listed on the injury report with a neck injury, but he was a full participant in practice.

    It makes sense to keep Hayward out.. I’ve liked House for sometime.. never understood why Mr. J Bush would get on the field with D.. he is a nightmare! House seems to be more polished.. I finally could relax sunday when J.Bush didn’t dress…he seems to on the field for every touchdown I know is a very nice guy.and certainly do not wish him anything bad..but please keep him off the field.. in Nickel package.. hope this past week helps Capers when deciding who to play..:-))

    It makes sense for most of those guys to rest till after the bye. I would love to see Eddie Lacy play, but Starks deserve more playing time for his performance anyways and it would be good to get Johnathon Franklin some game reps. It would also be great to see Burrnett on the field, but I think we could survive as well, best he is ready to go for after the bye when they play 13 in a row.

    Now Packer nation has to change this J. Bush talk. Has everyone forgotten his HUGE interception in the Super Bowl? The guy is a special teams ACE and I am a fan. Especially when he is making most special teams tackles, that is a serious part of the game.

    @ Scott – Bush may be a special teams ACE as you say but he is severely lacking the cover skills and instincts to play on the defensive side of the ball. As you recall the Super Bowl was a couple years ago and this is a what have you done for me lately league. I Bush’s case not much on defense. It seems to me NFL means Not For Long in Jarrett Bush’s case especially if he doesn’t step it up on defense.

    @ Scott-“Now Packer nation has to change this J. Bush talk. Has everyone forgotten his HUGE interception in the Super Bowl? How about when J Bush came into the game on D fence and Hines Ward made him look foolish and scored a 8 yard TD? I HATE Bush! Coaches say hes a special teams specialist….Then keep him on special teams! He cant cover anyone on D!!!

    Why so many hamstring injuries? I would invest in different training methods to attempt to eliminate or at least reduce the hamstring injuries. This is crazy!

    I am wondering the same exact thing about the hamstring injuries. Seems we alwasys lead the league in them. What the heck is up?
    Also agree on Bush, he should be special teams only as his D is TERRIBLE!

    Reading some of my fellow Packer-Backers’ comments makes me very glad that none of us are in charge of the roster. Jarrett Bush might be a nice guy, but he needs help covering himself with a blanket.

    I have never understood why they questioned Starks. He has always performed. He has always come through for the Packers. Why is this such a surprise? This is like a B sports movie playing out where they give all the credit to the highly paid star and the underrated hardworking guy humble guy who has always been there for them comes through in the end. I have seen this movie too many times. Thank you Mr. Starks, I have seen you play, and you are no surprise to me. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

    Oh, yes, Mr. Starks, I can give you one more name, Mr. Consistent.

    re: the Jarrett Bush discussion and his int in the SB. Please find that play on youtube and watch the replay…HIS guy was running wide open behind him down the field. Bush jumped a shorter route that someone else had, which is why there are two Packers on the ground. Had Big Ben hesitated for even a second thats a different outcome, thanks to Bush!!

    I cannot understand why there are so many hamstring injuries this year. It sounds like they aren’t doing enough stretching before/after practice. It’s hard enough to keep players on the field in the first place, lets not lose players because of lack of stretching!

    @Jonathan Daniels: Stretching has been proven to do nothing for injuries. It reduces muscle strength which in turn reduces muscular endurance. Give it up with the stretching nonsense.

    Here is a little bit of evidence:

    J.Bush just doesn’t step it up when he needs to. He either plays receivers too soft or doesn’t realize that he is, neither makes a good defender. House is much better at this as well as sacking the QB like last week!
