Cornerback Davon House hasn’t played a game in four weeks. He plans on playing in one this Sunday.
House, who injured his shoulder in the Green Bay Packers’ win over Atlanta back in week 14, said he expects to make his triumphant return against the Cowboys.
“I’ve worked really hard to get back. Prayed a lot. A lot of rehab. So I plan on being out there,” House said.
That’s good news for the Packers defense. While Tramon Williams and Sam Shields handled the Lions’ Calvin Johnson just fine in week 17, House has been the Packers’ best corner against bigger receivers.
They’re getting one this weekend in the form of All Pro Dez Bryant (6-2, 225), who led the league with 16 touchdown receptions.
This is where we should probably note that House is in a contract season. He could be playing his final game as a Packer on Sunday. Clearly, he’ll be looking to make a lasting impression. House has been solid this season, but hasn’t done anything spectacular that would warrant a huge contract.
Of course, all that could change if he’s dominant during the playoffs.
