The Green Bay Packers have shuffled their cornerbacks in and out of the starting lineup throughout the first week and a half of training camp, but up until Monday there had been one constant with the first team: Davon House. The former Packers fourth-round draft pick returned to Green Bay this offseason after two years in Jacksonville and immediately stepped in as a veteran leader in the locker room.
While players like Kevin King, LaDarius Gunter, and Quinten Rollins lined up on the boundary over the first week, House was the one constant on the opposite side — until Monday. House was spotted on the sidelines throughout practice, and according to multiple reports from the Packers’ beat writers, House has a hamstring injury that kept him out of this afternoon’s session.
Hamstring injuries are a sore spot (no pun intended) for Packers fans, who have seen numerous big-name players miss time with such issues in recent years. Clay Matthews in particular has had nagging hamstring problems in past seasons.
With House out, the Packers reportedly went with the duo of Damarious Randall and Rollins as the boundary corners in the base 3-4, with King and Rollins on the outside and Randall in the slot when moving to a 5 DB alignment.
Before jumping to any conclusions, fans should wait and see if House lines up for practice on Tuesday. The team’s first draft pick this spring, Kevin King, also missed a practice over the weekend as a precaution, and this may be more of the same as the team tries to keep any minor issues under control. Stay tuned tomorrow for updates from practice.
Joining House on the sideline today was wide receiver Colby Pearson, who had an ankle injury, and tight end Beau Sandland, who has a knee problem. Those players are in addition to OLB Vince Biegel and CB Demetri Goodson, both on the PUP list, and DT Montravius Adams who had surgery for a foot injury last week.
