Packers injury wire: Casey Hayward sits

By Rob Demovsky

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- It took Casey Hayward a month to return from the pulled hamstring he sustained while working out shortly before training camp.

If it takes that long to return from the recurrence of it, which happened in the Aug. 23 preseason game against the Seattle Seahawks, then the Green Bay Packers cornerback would not be available for Sunday’s regular-season opener at San Francisco.

Hayward was the only player who did not practice on Monday.

Coach Mike McCarthy said he would not discuss injuries until Wednesday, when the first official injury report for this week is due.

Safety Morgan Burnett and linebacker Brad Jones, both of whom missed the preseason finale at Kansas City because of hamstring injuries, returned to practice.
