(WNFL) - Despite all their injuries, the Green Bay Packers are not hurting in the secondary. In last Sunday’s win over Cleveland, rookie Micah Hyde shared playing time with Jerron McMillian as the sixth D-B in the Packers’ dime package. And rookie Chris Banjo was rotated with safety M-D Jennings. Defensive coordinator Dom Capers said the idea was give Banjo more playing time. He had a pass break-up and a tackle in just over two dozen snaps. Meanwhile, Hyde and Davon House have done well in giving corners Sam Shields and Tramon Williams a breather. Those positions could get crowded soon, with the possible return of second-year corner Casey Hayward. He has not played in the regular season yet, as he comes off an injured hamstring. Hayward led the Packers with six interceptions in his rookie season a year ago. He practiced all three days last week, but Capers says Hayward has not been ready to go full-throttle during a game. Capers said he’ll need to see how Hayward practices this week before making a decision on his return. Hayward has said he’s chomping-at-the-bit to play again. The Packers will start practicing tomorrow for their Sunday night game at Minnesota.
