Hayward has signed a three-year deal with the Chargers, ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Hayward -- who recorded 65 tackles in 16 games for the Packers last season -- gives the Chargers some added depth at cornerback behind Jason Verrett and Brandon Flowers, with Patrick Robinson a candidate to leave the team as a free agent.

Hayward (concussion) is listed as active Sunday against the Lions, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

One week removed from suffering a concussion, Hayward's presence means that the Packers' secondary is intact for the first time in weeks. Expect him to start at cornerback opposite Sam Shields (shoulder).

Hayward (concussion) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Lions, Rob Demovsky of ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

Damarious Randall (illness) and Quinten Rollins (neck) are also listed as probable, so the Packers probably won't feel any need to rush Sam Shields (shoulder) back from his own injury. Hayward is locked in as an every-down player.

Hayward (concussion) practiced in a limited capacity Thursday, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The fact that Hayward was able to take part in non-contact portions of practice implies that he's passed at least some tests in the concussion protocol. However, he still must be cleared by an independent neurologist, which will determine whether he suits up Sunday against the Lions.

Hayward (concussion) was a non-participant at Wednesday's practice, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Packers' secondary has been dealt a horrible hand, injury-wise, this season, and Hayward's bout with a concussion is just another in a laundry list of concerns. If he passes enough tests, he could take part in non-contact drills by the end of the week, but an independent neurologist will ultimately have the final word on his Week 10 status.

Hayward has entered the concussion protocol in the aftermath of Sunday's loss at Carolina, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Serving as the Packers' top cornerback for most of the past two games due to Sam Shields' shoulder injury, Hayward's own availability is now in question. Depending on how the duo progresses this week, the team could be down to Damarious Randall, Demetri Goodson, and Ladarius Gunter as the only healthy corners, as rookie Quinten Rollins also sat out Sunday with a shoulder concern. It isn't out of the realm of possibility that the Packers promote or sign another CB before Sunday's contest against the Lions.

Hayward left Sunday's game with a suspected concussion, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

EDGE Analysis

Hayward's status for the Packers' next game against the Lions is uncertain, but the team was already dealing with a couple injuries in the secondary, and another absence could leave them extremely thin in the secondary in Week 10.

Hayward was limited throughout offseason workouts due to the injury, but he will be a full participant in training camp and is set to compete for a starting role.

Hayward said Thursday that he's been limited by a foot injury throughout the offseason, Rob Demovsky of ESPN reports.

The cornerback would not reveal whether he underwent offseason surgery, but he confirmed that he'll be ready for the start of training camp, so it doesn't look like a major concern for Green Bay.

Hayward tallied 43 tackles (33 solo), three interceptions, two fumble recoveries, and a defensive touchdown in 16 games during the 2014 season.

Hayward showed a nose for the football despite playing primarily in nickel and dime defenses during 2014. His role in 2015 will largely depend on whether or not the Packers bring back one or both of pending free agents -- and fellow cornerbacks -- Tramon Williams and Davon House.
