Casey Hayward expected to be out a month

According to the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel,  Packers cornerback Casey Hayward has such a bad hamstring injury that he’s expected to be held out for the next month.

A source close to Hayward said the second-year player doesn’t expect to play in the first month of the season.

Hayward was declared out of the San Francisco early in the week.

“I don’t really have a time line for Casey,” coach Mike McCarthy said.”I hope his status is different next week.”

Hayward injured the hamstring in July working out in Atlanta before training camp.

This is a huge blow to the Packers.  Hayward quickly became one of their top corners during his rookie year in 2012.
