Shoulder Injury Has Shelved Kevin King

Rookie cornerback Kevin King’s ascension to the starting lineup appears on hold, at least temporarily. King sat out practice on Tuesday because of a shoulder injury.

The severity of the injury hasn’t been revealed, so we don’t have an idea of how long King will be out.

King had been working with the No. 1 defense opposite Davon House. He replaced LaDarius Gunter after last year’s No. 1 cornerback struggled early on in camp.

With King out, Quinten Rollins took over with the No. 1 defense, which doesn’t seem like a very good sign for Gunter.

It now seems like a safe bet, barring injury, that King and House will be the Green Bay Packers’ starting cornerbacks to open the season. Damarious Randall is expected to line up in the slot.

It has been rare for coach Mike McCarthy to start rookies in week 1, so at least to that end, King’s quick rise has been a surprise.

    Let’s see, 3 of gay Ted’s attempts to shore up this piece of shit defense are already not able to be on the field. Once again, the freak is attempting to use his inability to draft an impact player and a bunch of street guys to the right the ship. Pre season hasn’t even begun and they’re already dropping like flies. At least the D will lead the league in something again this year….Guess what, it’s not working. Defense sucked last year and promises to be worse this year. Been said many times many ways…..get this fucking douchebag out of that chair before Rodgers is dead and buried.

      I mean, I have been vocal about TT needing to step down, but let’s at least be objective here. It isn’t his fault that a couple guys have already been injured. It’s football.

    That’s exactly right, i wish people would quit pissing on Ted, and let his genius play out. Yes, we have 3 draft choices missing their 1st training camp because of injury, but the good news is, we have 7 more!!

    Ted’s got this. This draft class will heal up and take us right to the chili dome on Feb. 4th. I have no doubt.

    LET’S DO THIS!!!

    In Ted we Trust.
