News: Green bay cornerback Davon House told reporters that he is hopeful of playing come Week 1 of the regular season against the 49ers. House suffered a separated left shoulders and will not require surgery. "What I was told, if it was to pop out again, then I'll have to get surgery," House said. "As long as it doesn't pop out again, I'll play with the harness on. Hopefully it doesn't pop out at all."
Analysis: House was in line to start at one of the starting spots before the injury happened during a punt in the third quarter of the team's first preseason game against San Diego. House will need to go through several practices before he can play during Green Bay's opener so we'll keep an eye on his status moving forward. House is expected to have low-end Fantasy value in IDP formats, when healthy.
News: Green Bay Packers second-year cornerback Davon House is out two to three weeks with a separated left shoulder, the Green Bay Press-Gazette reported Sunday. Packers coach Mike McCarthy said House will rehab the shoulder before deciding whether he can return to the field or need surgery.
Analysis: House was in line to start at one of the starting spots before the injury happened during a punt in the third quarter of Thursday's 21-13 exhibition loss to the San Diego Chargers. Rookie Casey Hayward had increased reps with the first-team defense during Saturday night's practice in place of House. House is expected to have low-end Fantasy value in IDP formats, when healthy.
News: Packers rookie CB Davon House has already been ruled out for his first pro game. He won't play in the Week 1 contest against the Saints because of an ankle injury.
Analysis: The New Mexico State product was drafted to bolster the depth in an oft-injured secondary, but he was not expected to see much playing time even when healthy. Ignore House in all formats for now.
News: The Packers added three defenders in April's draft, selecting New Mexico State CB Davon House (Round 4), Appalachian State OLB D.J. Smith (Round 6) and Arizona State DT Lawrence Guy (Round 7). House is a promising outside cornerback prospect with nice speed and good size, Smith is undersized but was very productive in college and Guy is a big body who can work along the D-line.
Analysis: None of these defenders have a lot of potential for Fantasy success. Possibly Smith could work his way into a decent role -- if he was buried on the team with the most linebacker talent in the NFC. We'd pass on all three Packers rookies in drafts.
