Green Bay’s second-year corner left the game against the Vikings.

The Green Bay Packers’ secondary has been impressive so far, but things will be more difficult moving forward as cornerback Kevin King is currently out with a groin injury. The team announced early in the third quarter that he is questionable to return. Davon House has been playing outside since King left the game.

House is a longtime veteran on his second stint with the Packers, but he was extremely ineffective last season, and given his position on the depth chart this season, the team know it. House will likely be a frequent target of Kirk Cousins and the Vikings if King cannot return.

Rookies Jaire Alexander and Josh Jackson have been excellent in both coverage and rushing the passer, and Tramon Williams has been solid, holding the Minnesota receivers in check, and the safeties have been adequate. Minnesota has really only had success targeting backs and tight ends matched up on linebackers. Cousins has been effective targeting weak points, and a big weak point just walked on to the field.
