CB Casey Hayward (hamstring) expects to be ready for the beginning of the Packers' offseason program later this month.

Big things were expected of Hayward last season as he came off a spectacular rookie year, but his hamstring wouldn't cooperate. He appeared in just three games due to multiple aggravations and eventually landed on injured reserve in November. Getting Hayward back at 100 percent and adding Julius Peppers should lead to a bump in defensive effectiveness.
Apr 9 - 9:48 AM

Packers CB Casey Hayward resumed running two weeks ago following his "slight" 2013 hamstring tear.

After an ROY-caliber rookie year in 2012, Hayward was essentially a non-factor as a sophomore, appearing in just three games with one start. His healthy return should provide a big boost to Green Bay's pass defense at slot corner. Look for Sam Shields and Tramon Williams to continue to man the perimeter.
Mar 14 - 11:46 AM

Packers placed CB Casey Hayward on injured reserve with a hamstring injury, ending his season.

Hayward suffered a setback in Week 10 and was a long shot to return this season. The Packers will move forward with Tramon Williams, Sam Shields, Davon House and Micah Hyde as their top four corners. DE Jerel Worthy (knee) and S Sean Richardson (neck) have been activated from the PUP list in corresponding moves.

Speaking Thursday, Packers coach Mike McCarthy revealed CB Casey Hayward's hamstring injury will sideline him "multiple weeks."

It's yet another setback for Hayward with the hamstring injury that's been plaguing him all season. He's been limited to 88 snaps across only three games. Tramon Williams, Sam Shields, Davon House and Micah Hyde are the Packers' top four cornerbacks in Hayward's absence.

Packers CB Casey Hayward left Sunday's game against the Eagles in the second quarter with a hamstring injury.

It looks like an aggravation of the hamstring issue Hayward has dealt with for virtually this entire season. He's done for the day. Hayward was ProFootballFocus' No. 4 overall corner last season.

Packers coach Mike McCarthy expects CB Casey Hayward (hamstring) to play in Sunday night's game against the Vikings.

Hayward was a full participant in Wednesday's practice and is on track to make his season debut this week. His return is an immediate upgrade to the Packers secondary. Hayward was Pro Football Focus' No. 4 overall cornerback during his 2012 rookie season.

Packers CB Casey Hayward (hamstring) has been ruled out for Week 6 against the Ravens.

Green Bay will be without top corner Hayward, top pass rusher Clay Matthews (thumb), and top ILB Brad Jones (hamstring) in a plus matchup for Ravens skill-position players. Fire up Ray Rice and Torrey Smith in fantasy leagues.

Packers declared CB Casey Hayward, RB James Starks, LB Nate Palmer, G/C Greg Van Roten, TE Brandon Bostick, DE Josh Boyd and DE C.J. Wilson inactive for Week 5 against the Lions.

Eddie Lacy (concussion) is active and carrying the load, though fellow rookie Johnathan Franklin should be in for a change-of-pace role after showing well in Lacy's absence in Week 3. Starks is week to week and will be returning to the No. 3 perch on the depth chart if Franklin has another solid game Sunday.

ESPN's Adam Schefter suggested on NFL Insiders Thursday that Packers CB Casey Hayward (hamstring) is "one week away" from returning.

The Packers have really missed Hayward, most notably when Anquan Boldin torched them in Week 1. They've been replacing him with rookie Micah Hyde. Hayward was Pro Football Focus' No. 4 overall cornerback during his 2012 rookie campaign.

Packers CB Casey Hayward (hamstring) is expected to miss the first month of the season.

Hayward initially injured his hamstring early in training camp. He returned for the third preseason game but suffered a setback. Hayward was already declared out for Sunday's opener earlier in the week. It's a big loss for the Packers. Hayward picked off seven passes as a rookie and was expected to take on a bigger role in his second season. He also graded out as Pro Football Focus' No. 4 corner in 2012. Tramon Williams and Sam Shields will start on the outside with rookie Micah Hyde seeing extensive work as the nickel back.

Packers CB Casey Hayward suffered a hamstring injury during training camp Friday.

Hayward is expected to miss at least a few weeks while recovering from the injury. Hayward is a "lock" to be the Packers' slot corner this season, but the missed action could hurt his chances of landing an every-down job.
