Packers' defender out for 49ers game with injury

CREATED Sep. 4, 2013 - UPDATED: Sep. 4, 2013

A Green Bay Packers cornerback being counted on to make a major impact on the 2013 season will be out for Sunday's game.

Four days away from the big matchup between the Packers and San Francisco 49ers, the Green Bay Press-Gazette's Mike Vandermause reported this:

Later, the Packers released their injury report and said he would be out for the contest.

"I don't really have a timeline for Casey," admitted McCarthy during the news conference, though he said Hayward believed he was making progress on the injury.

Micah Hyde, a rookie draft pick from Iowa, is expected to play a role in taking his place.
