Hayward (concussion) is listed as active Sunday against the Lions, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports. One week removed from suffering a concussion, Hayward's presence means that the Packers' secondary is intact for the first time in weeks. Expect him to start at cornerback opposite Sam Shields (shoulder).
Hayward (concussion) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Lions, Rob Demovsky of ESPN reports. Damarious Randall (illness) and Quinten Rollins (neck) are also listed as probable, so the Packers probably won't feel any need to rush Sam Shields (shoulder) back from his own injury. Hayward is locked in as an every-down player.
Hayward (concussion) practiced in a limited capacity Thursday, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports. The fact that Hayward was able to take part in non-contact portions of practice implies that he's passed at least some tests in the concussion protocol. However, he still must be cleared by an independent neurologist, which will determine whether he suits up Sunday against the Lions.
Hayward (concussion) was a non-participant at Wednesday's practice, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports. The Packers' secondary has been dealt a horrible hand, injury-wise, this season, and Hayward's bout with a concussion is just another in a laundry list of concerns. If he passes enough tests, he could take part in non-contact drills by the end of the week, but an independent neurologist will ultimately have the final word on his Week 10 status.
Hayward has entered the concussion protocol in the aftermath of Sunday's loss at Carolina, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports. Serving as the Packers' top cornerback for most of the past two games due to Sam Shields' shoulder injury, Hayward's own availability is now in question. Depending on how the duo progresses this week, the team could be down to Damarious Randall, Demetri Goodson, and Ladarius Gunter as the only healthy corners, as rookie Quinten Rollins also sat out Sunday with a shoulder concern. It isn't out of the realm of possibility that the Packers promote or sign another CB before Sunday's contest against the Lions.
