Rookie cornerback King goes on IR
GREEN BAY, WIS. >> Kevin King’s season is over after the Green Bay Packers placed the rookie cornerback on injured reserve with a shoulder injury.
King, the team’s top draft pick, was inactive two of the past three games because of the injury.
The 6-foot-3 King had played well in spurts, giving the Packers a mix of height and speed that they had been lacking at cornerback to play effective press coverage.
He was the first selection of the second round — the 33rd overall pick — out of Washington.
