King (shoulder) was placed on injured reserve Wednesday.

King was able to play through the injury on a few occasions this season, but with the rookie not showing much progress in his recovery, the Packers opted to shut him down. The rookie second-round pick had been fairly dependable in coverage when healthy enough to play, recording 28 tackles and five pass breakups in nine games. Fellow cornerback Demetri Goodson (knee) was activated from the Physically Unable to Perform list Wednesday and will take King's spot on the 53-man roster.
