Packers Injury Report: Casey Hayward Ruled Out, Perry and Barclay Are Not

Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports

The Packers will need to go back to plan B at the slot cornerback position for a while, and may need to do the same at a few other positions at least for one week.

In Mike McCarthy's Thursday press conference, the bad news got worse on the injury front, as one key Green Bay Packers player will miss more time and others look unlikely to play on Sunday.

McCarthy started out by addressing Don Barclay, who was held out of practice again on Thursday. McCarthy said that Barclay will not practice at all this week, and will have his injured knee rested until Sunday as the team wants to give him a "full week" to try to rehab it. If he can't play on Sunday, it would be either the Marshall Newhouse or Derek Sherrod show at right tackle.

Speaking of the offensive line, center Evan Dietrich-Smith was again limited in practice.

Casey Hayward got the worst news at practice, however. McCarthy said the corner will be out "multiple weeks", leaving the Packers with a rotation of Davon House and Micah Hyde in the slot once again. The rest of Hayward's season is in jeopardy, as he aggravated the same hamstring injury that kept him out of most of training camp as well as the team's first six regular season games.

One Packers blogger thinks the Packers should put Hayward on injured reserve. At this point, I can't disagree.

As for other Packers, McCarthy used the line "he will be challenged to play" to describe outside linebacker Nick Perry. Here's the full injury report.

Did Not Practice: OL Don Barclay, CB Casey Hayward, DL Johnny Jolly, OLB Mike Neal, OLB Nick Perry, QB Aaron Rodgers

Limited participation: C Evan Dietrich-Smith, DT Ryan Pickett

Full Participation: OLB Clay Matthews
