Injury Update at Packers Training Camp: Who's Returning? Who's Dropping Out?

Injury Update at Packers Training Camp: Who's Returning? Who's Dropping Out?

The news of the day at Packers training camp was not who was returning or who was dropping out, but rather that cornerback Casey Hayward was out for a second consecutive practice after initially dropping out on Tuesday.

Without media access to either the players or coaches, it's unknown when there will be an update on Hayward or if he'll take part in the Packers' third preseason game on Friday against the Oakland Raiders.

After Tuesday's practice, head coach Mike McCarthy said he held Hayward out of practice and that he was "just being smart with him" because of his injury history. However, McCarthy did not say whether or not Hayward re-aggravated the hamstring injury that forced him to miss the majority of last season and eventually landed him on injured reserve.

 

Who's Returning?

Offensive lineman T.J. Lang, shoulder

Lang dropped out late in practice on Tuesday, only missing the last few minutes. He was observed taking off his pads with a wrap around his shoulder and ice under it. McCarthy said he had "banged his shoulder," but that he wasn't worried about it. Lang reportedly took part in practice on Thursday, according to Tyler Dunne of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

 

Who's Dropping Out?

Offensive lineman Jordan McCray

Tyler Dunne reports McCray was pulled out of practice on Tuesday, but it appears that's been unreported up until this time. McCray had been working as backup on the Packers offensive line, primarily at guard in preseason action. Again, with no media access to players or coaches, it's unknown whether McCray will be able to play in Friday's preseason home opener.

Letroy Guion will be cut i think if he dont play the next 2 preseason games

RC Packer Fan's picture

He will be put on the PUP list, IMO.

Jhonny Jolly could be getting call :)

Can't count on Hayward.
Sounds like that hammy might be an every year thing.

Should try to trade him.

You are such an asscow and I really hope you"re wrong. The likelyhood of reoccurance in hamstring injuries is frighteningly high. Hope it's minor and Casey is back soon.

Hayward... move along.
Perry... move along.
D.Jones... move along.
Burnett... move along.
B. Jones... move along.
Quarless... move along.
Kuhn... move along.
Bush... move along.

Lotta dead weight on this squad.

Cow... moo ve along.

Couldn't resist. lol I can see what you mean about a few of these guys like Kuhn and Bush due to age and maybe Quarless and possibly Perry if he gets hurt again. Way to early with Hayward. This guy could be something special Cow. Don't be mooing at him just yet. If you want to moo at Kuhn that's fine. This is probably his last year in GB if he makes the roster.

Hayward could play... but he's permanently damaged.

GoldFinger's picture

Is this confirmed? I didn't hear anything about it. So his hammy is permanently damaged? What a bummer!! Damn!!

BradHTX's picture

Cow is calling someone else permanently damaged?

Nah, no points for one that easy...

Aeric's picture

I hate to agree but I think Perry, Quarless and B. Jones probably need to be upgraded and don't seem to have upside. I once thought Quarless would be solid. Guess not. Datone Jones still may be a player..patience grasshopper. I doubt that the extent of Casey Hayward's hamstring strain is known to asscow or maybe anyone else

We may not "officially" know about the hamstring.... but... we all know about the hamstring.

You may not want to admit that you now... but... you know.

Bostick and Hayward out - both key starters. All of a sudden injuries are raising their ugly head again.

For teh record I have to agree with Cow. When a CB misses a whole year w a hammy and then can't get through TC w/o a recurrence of same injury, that spell's trouble.

Archie's picture

Datone Jones - He may not be the sackmaster we all thought he would be but he's playing damn good this summer. Big improvement. He's on his way.

Go Datone!!!

Nick Perry - still scares me as a bust. I don't see the heart of a warrior. He's a workout guy. Maybe he would be better as a DE but this year is his last chance to wake up and play OLB. Maybe he will fit well as Elephant. But as a 3-4 rush OLB, he is too quiet - one trick pony who relies on strength i.e., no pass moves other than bull rush.

GoldFinger's picture

The Packers are trying to do to Nick Perry what they did with James Starks last year. Less is more. Give Perry a lesser role and hope playing second fiddle to Peppers will cause him to be more productive and yes, stay healthy. I think this could work.
