Rookie cor­ner­back King goes on IR

Honolulu Star-Advertiser - - SPORTS -

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.
