Cheese Curds, 11/4: Packers keep shuffling corners, tight ends struggling

The Packers can't get any consistent production out of a unit that was expected to be much better this season.

NFL: Chicago Bears at Green Bay Packers Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports

On Sunday, the Green Bay Packers will host the Indianapolis Colts in week nine, but they will do so with yet another question mark at cornerback.

It seems that someone has put a curse on the Packers' corners this year, as just about every player at the position has been injured at some point. The latest player to miss practice time is Demetri Goodson, who has yet to participate since last Sunday.

Meanwhile, the Packers' one big external free agent signing this season has been on the bench most of the season with an injury, but his fellow tight end has failed to impress at all. In fact, the Packers' production from their tight ends is among the worst in the NFL this season.
