GREEN BAY, Wis. -- There was more bad news than good news for the Green Bay Packers when they announced their injury report Wednesday. With the Washington Redskins traveling to Lambeau Field for Sunday's game, the Packers have several starters who have less than 96 hours to recover if they're going to be ready in time. One player that Green Bay knows it will be without for the second consecutive week is cornerback Casey Hayward, who was ruled out with a hamstring injury. Hayward finished third in the NFL's Defensive Rookie of the Year race last season, but he's been out since the third preseason game when he aggravated a hamstring injury that sidelined him for the first 15 training camp practices. The Packers added both starting tight end Jermichael Finley (toe) and starting left guard Josh Sitton (back) to the injury report, with neither able to practice in any capacity Wednesday. Finley hurt his foot on the third play of Green Bay's Week 1 loss to the San Francisco 49ers, but he played 60 snaps through the pain. "On the first drag route, I was running out of bounds, and Patrick Willis dove at my foot," Finley said Wednesday in the locker room. "It was a freak deal, and he just bounced on my heel a little bit and dorsiflexed my big toe. I'll be all right." Sitton, who is often Green Bay's best offensive lineman, was called for three penalties against San Francisco, all on running plays. Though offensive coordinator Tom Clements indicated Monday that two of the three calls were somewhat questionable, it was still a struggle for the usually dependable Sitton. "Talking with Josh today, I realized it started bothering him on the long flight out there," McCarthy said. "He's made progress from yesterday to today. We really don't have a handle on it yet." Starting outside linebacker Nick Perry suffered what McCarthy previously described as "a stinger" against the 49ers. Perry practiced in full Wednesday, but he was listed with a neck injury. The one positive development for the Packers' medical report was starting safety Morgan Burnett, who did not play in San Francisco but practiced on a limited basis Wednesday as he works his way back from a hamstring injury. "Morgan Burnett, as far as his chance to play in the game, I don't know yet," McCarthy said. "He was limited today, did some individual work and it'll probably take the full week to find out." Without Burnett available in Week 1, Green Bay's secondary performed poorly. Safety Jerron McMillian missed four tackles and gave up six receptions in coverage, contributing to 49ers veteran receiver Anquan Boldin having 13 catches for 208 yards. Boldin was named the NFC's offensive player of the week. Follow Paul Imig on Twitter
