King (shoulder) was limited at Sunday's practice, Rob Demovsky of ESPN reports.
King sat out the Packers' first preseason contest, so a return to practice, even in a limited fashion, is good news for the second-year cornerback's outlook going forward. Green Bay's next game is against the Steelers on Thursday.
King (shoulder) did not participate in Monday's practice due to a shoulder injury, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.comreports.
King's injury was not sustained on the same shoulder for which he required offseason surgery. The severity of the second-year cornerback's shoulder issue is unknown, so his status warrants monitoring in the coming days. The 23-year-old flashed at times in a questionable Packers secondary last year, but heads into the 2018 season surrounded by a much more talented group including first-round pick Jaire Alexander and second-rounder Josh Jackson. If King misses extended time, it should mean increased first-team reps for both rookies.
King is coming off shoulder surgery and wasn't allowed to participate in any 11-on-11 work during both OTAs and minicamp, though he was able to go through individual drills throughout. It isn't clear if he'll remain under restrictions when training camp rolls around in late July, but his potential absence fromt team drills could allow first-round rookie Jaire Alexander to roll with the starters.
King (shoulder) was a limited participant in OTAs on Tuesday, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.
When King went under the knife, he was the No. 2 CB (behind Damarious Randall) in a questionable secondary. Fast forward to today, King is surrounded by worthy corners, including veteran Tramon Williams, first-round pick Jaire Alexander and second-round pick Josh Jackson. King only suited up for nine games in his rookie season, and with new defensive coordinator Mike Pettine looking to shake up the previously struggling unit, nothing's certain in the secondary. Still, King projects to be a Week 1 starter.
Head coach Mike McCarthy recently said King (shoulder) is "on track" in his recovery, Jason Wilde of the Wisconsin State Journal reports.
King underwent surgery in early December to repair a troublesome left shoulder injury. While it isn't clear if he'll be ready to go in time for the start of team workouts next month, there doesn't seem to be any concern that he's at risk of missing training camp later this summer. With Damarious Randall having been traded to the Browns earlier this offseason, King appears to have the inside track for a starting job in 2018, even if Green Bay addresses the cornerback position early in the upcoming NFL Draft.
