The Packers’ top four cornerbacks were all out of the preseason opener. Jaire Alexander and Tramon Williams were among the starters rested, while Kevin King missed the game due to a hamstring injury, and Josh Jackson remains out with a foot injury.
Rookie Ka’Dar Hollman had the opportunity to start, and he made the most of it with an interception on the first defensive series. For a defense that needs to force more turnovers this season, this was the perfect start. And this wasn’t the first time Hollman has impressed so far this summer.
The Packers have so much talent at cornerback. The only concern is staying healthy. King has been unlucky with injuries throughout his career and is currently dealing with a hamstring injury. Jackson has been out for all of training camp so far.
Hopefully, both players will be fully healthy in time for the season opener in four weeks.
The Packers have the depth to deal with a couple of injuries — Hollman and Tony Brown have both played well — but if this group is fully healthy, the secondary can be great this season.
Hollman was one of the standout performers for the Packers against the Texans, and he’ll be a player to watch in the next three exhibition contests.
