Packers' Hayward to miss several weeks

Green Bay Packers cornerback Casey Hayward aggravated his hamstring injury against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Now, he's expected to miss several weeks, according to Packers coach Mike McCarthy.

Hayward missed the first six games of the season with the injury.

The Packers' healthy cornerbacks heading into Sunday's game against the New York Giants are Sam Shields, Tramon Williams, Davon House and Micah Hyde.

"Talk about a young man looking forward to a big year," McCarthy said of Hayward. "History tells you players will take jump in second year. Hurt right before camp. Significant injury. Been almost the whole year. Frustrating for him."
