Goodson (hamstring) is active Sunday against the Rams. Goodson is third on the depth chart at left cornerback and will add depth for the Packers against the Rams.
Packers cornerback Demetri Goodson is ready to seize a starting opportunity after the departure of Davon House and Tramon Williams this offseason, the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reports. "I've been waiting for this opportunity," Goodson said. "Last year was cool getting my feet wet, but it sucked not being able to play in those big games. I want to play in the big games, I want to make the big plays. So now, I have the opportunity to do it. I'm going to do everything I possibly can to be a starter on this team." Goodson played zero defensive snaps last season but made six special-teams tackles in six games. "I got better through the season," he said. "Coaches started to trust me a lot more and, truthfully, if they would have put me in last year, I would have balled out....It's definitely going to be a shot for me to start. I've been grinding, man. Grinding hard."
