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 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 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.

Hayward (hamstring) did not practice Thursday, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Hayward exited early from Wednesday's session as a precaution to ensure his previously bothersome hamstring didn't react to being overworked. The cornerback played just three games last season as a result of hamstring issues. However, as a rookie, Hayward excelled as the Packers' nickel cornerback, totaling 53 tackles (40 solo) and six interceptions. As such, Green Bay will do whatever is needed to keep Hayward healthy ahead of this season, making Thursday's day off for maintenance purposes. At the moment, it's unclear if Hayward will suit up for Friday's preseason game versus Oakland.

Packers CB Casey Hayward (hamstring) is participating in OTAs.

He will be all systems go for the regular season. Hayward was arguably the NFL's top rookie corner in 2012, before an injury-ruined sophomore campaign. He should man the slot between RCB Sam Shields and LCB Tramon Williams this year.

CB Casey Hayward (hamstring) expects to be ready for the beginning of the Packers' offseason program later this month.

Big things were expected of Hayward last season as he came off a spectacular rookie year, but his hamstring wouldn't cooperate. He appeared in just three games due to multiple aggravations and eventually landed on injured reserve in November. Getting Hayward back at 100 percent and adding Julius Peppers should lead to a bump in defensive effectiveness.
