GREEN BAY, Wis. (WBAY) - “No, I don't think it's that bad,” Packers cornerback Davon House said of the quad injury that held him out of practice Wednesday.
After the game in Atlanta Sunday, House was jumping up to high-five fans, apparently not too concerned about the injury.
But despite his lack of worry, Green Bay's trainers held House out of practice Wednesday, to play it safe.
“At the end of the day, they want to make sure I'm here in December,” House said. “Say something bad were to happen today in practice, I might be out for 6,7, 8 weeks. So at the end of the day, I do trust them.”
And the Packers are starting to trust rookie Kevin King. He played 79% of the team's defensive snaps in Atlanta, seeing plenty of success.
“I have to do the same thing next game,” Kind said. “They tell me I need to learn how to stack success and just keep pushing.”
The challenge this week? The uber-athletic, sticky-handed A.J. Green.
“He is a guy who can go get the ball,” King said. “His catch radius is ridiculous. He does a great job of going and getting it, especially those deep over-the-shoulder balls. I really just want to try to disrupt him as much as I can.”
King may be young and relatively inexperienced, but after tasting success against Julio Jones last week, he's itching to make plays against Green.
“I just do what I do,” King said. “When the ball is in the air, it's just as much mine as it is his. That's something he and I both do well, so we will see.”
Green grabbed 4 passes for 46 yards and a score the last time the Packers and Bengals met, 4 years ago.
