Packers To Place CB Davon House On IR

The Packers’ cornerback contingent will thin out following a Tuesday transaction. Davon House is headed to the Packers’ IR list, NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport reports (on Twitter).

A shoulder injury has bothered the veteran cover man all season, ESPN.com’s Rob Demovsky adds (via Twitter). He’ll now have at least eight weeks to surmount it, but it’s obviously possible House is out for the remainder of the season.

House will need surgery, per Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel (Twitter link), and Demovsky reports it will be a season-ending procedure.

Green Bay used House as a 12-game starter last season but hasn’t given him nearly as much run to start 2018. Although House has seen action in all three games, he’s played just 29 total snaps. Additions of Jaire Alexander and Josh Jackson, and the return of Tramon Williams, have cut into House’s playing time.

The Packers are working out other cornerbacks, per Rapoport. Both House and Kevin King, who missed Week 3 with a groin injury, are battling maladies. While King’s availability for Week 4 isn’t yet known, House will be down until at least November because of his shoulder troubles.

House is still just 29 despite having two Packers stints separated by two Jaguars seasons. He was part of a five-man Packers corner corps, and the team will surely add a replacement soon.
