King is scheduled for shoulder surgery Tuesday, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.
King played through this injury for a good chunk of the year, but the rookie reported that his shoulder continued to pop out an unreasonable amount of times, so the decision was made to shut him down. There's still no timetable for his recovery or whether he'll be ready for OTA's, and more information should be available after the surgery is completed.
McCarthy noted that before King was shut down for the season, the rookie had been playing through the shoulder injury for "quite some time," so the surgical procedure should provide a more permanent fix. The Packers haven't issued a timetable for King's recovery, but it's possible that he'll have to miss OTAs in the spring while he focuses on his rehab.
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.
King (shoulder) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers.
King was able to play through his nagging shoulder injury the last couple weeks, but won't take the field Sunday after failing to practice this week. Damarious Randall (knee) and Davon House are set to be the Packers' starting cornerbacks in the Week 13 matchup.
King (shoulder) returned to Sunday's game against the Steelers.
King exited the game in the first half to get his shoulder checked out. Fortunately, it's now clear he didn't sustain any sort of serious injury.
