Hayward out at least a month | Shark Bites | Draft Sharks

Packers CB Casey Hayward expects to miss at least the 1st month of the season, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.  Hayward missed the early part of camp with a hamstring injury and then strained it when he returned for the Aug. 23 preseason game.  Green Bay plans to use more caution in bringing him back this time.  His absence certainly doesn't help the Packers' defense.  Hayward graded out as Pro Football Focus' #4 CB overall last year, 2nd best in coverage.  His 6 INTs tied for 4th in the league.  And that all came in a rookie season that saw him play just 61% of the team's defensive snaps.  Tramon Williams and Sam Shields figure to start while Hayward is out, leaving the Green Bay secondary still in solid shape.  If Hayward can return at 100% this time and finish out the year, the whole unit will certainly get a boost.

Recent Shark Bites

Chargers lead CB Casey Hayward is active for today's game against the Dolphins. He entered the day questionable with a back injury but is ready to go. Hayward isn't particularly attractive for IDP lineups against the low-volume Miami offense.

Chargers CB Casey Hayward (calf) is active for tonight's game against the Chiefs. He remains a marginal IDP option, but his presence is bad news for the K.C. passing game.

Chargers CB Casey Hayward is questionable for Saturday's game against the Chiefs after a persistent calf injury "flared up" and kept him out of practice Thursday, according to the Los Angeles Times. "He had more soreness in his calf, and it kind of worked its way down to his Achilles, so we held him out," HC Anthony Lynn said. "There's always a concern, but we're hopeful he can play." We'll check on Hayward's status when the inactives are announced at about 7 p.m. ET Saturday.

As expected, Chargers CB Casey Hayward is active for today's game against the Browns. He was listed on the injury report with an ankle issue during the week, but Hayward missed practice while dealing with the death of a younger brother. Back with the team, he should be in IDP lineups for a high-ceiling matchup against DeShone Kizer.

Chargers CB Casey Hayward is officially questionable for Sunday's game against the Browns, but HC Anthony Lynn told ESPN.com he expects his lead cover guy to play. Hayward has a "calf/personal" designation on the injury report. He has been away from the team all week dealing with the death of a younger brother but is scheduled to return before Sunday.
