Casey Hayward out at least one month for Packers?

Green Bay Packers cornerback Casey Hayward was ruled out of Sunday's season opener against the San Francisco 49ers, but he likely will miss much more time.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported Saturday that the second-year pro might miss at least the first month of the season, citing a source close to Hayward.

Hayward injured his hamstring prior to training camp while working out in Atlanta. He played in the preseason matchup against the Seattle Seahawks before leaving after just 10 snaps, reinjuring his hamstring.

The Packers' defense is trying prove the team is more than Aaron Rodgers and Co. Hayward led the Packers with six interceptions during his rookie season.

Green Bay has a Week 4 bye, so that could mitigate one week the Packers will miss one of their most dynamic secondary playmakers.
