Green Bay Packers cornerback Casey Hayward has been cleared for the start of training camp after recovering from a foot injury, according to the Green Bay Press Gazette. 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.

Hayward made one solo tackle and returned a fumble for a touchdown in Sunday's victory over the Eagles.

Hayward played on just 26-of-78 defensive snaps in Sunday's game, but he still managed to find the end zone for the second time in as many weeks.

Hayward tallied three tackles (all solo) and returned an interception for a touchdown in Sunday's victory over the Bears.

Hayward's interception was a bit of a gift from Bears quarterback Jay Cutler as the ball bounced off an offensive lineman's head, but it was his third pick in four games nonetheless.

Hayward (glute) played extensively in Sunday's loss to the Lions, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Hayward was listed as questionable for Sunday's game, but he was able to play his regular role as the Packers' nickel corner after being limited to special teams duty the week before. Hayward, who is still looking for his first interception of the season, finished Sunday's game with two tackles (one solo).

Hayward was limited to special teams duty in Sunday's victory over the Jets, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Hayward opened the season as the Packers' third corner, but Davon House played over him Sunday. It's not clear if there has been a depth chart change, or if the Packers were just playing the matchups, but Hayward was shut out in the box score in Week 2.

Hayward (hamstring) returned to practice Sunday, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Hayward hasn't featured since exiting Wednesday's practice early with a hamstring concern. While that time away included Friday's third preseason game, Hayward returns to practice Sunday, fortunately not missing too long. The talented cornerback missed all but three games of last season due to re-occurring hamstring troubles, so the Packers will be sure to afford Hayward any rest he requires to preserve his health this season.

Hayward (hamstring) will not play in Friday's preseason game, Fox Sports Wisconsin's Paul Imig reports.

He did not practice Thursday after exiting early from Wednesday's session, and the fact that he won't play Friday after what was labeled as a maintenance day Thursday, is certainly cause for concern. Hayward's talent has never been in question since he was drafted by Green Bay in 2012, but he was a non-factor last season due to injuries, and it would be a major hit to the Packers' secondary if he was limited again in 2014. Hopefully we'll see some progress in his status during next week's practices.
