The Green Bay Packers could get back a starter at cornerback this week.

Kevin King, who missed last week’s win over the Chicago Bears with a shoulder injury, returned to practice on Wednesday, according to Mike Spofford of the team’s official site.

King’s return to the practice field opens the door for him to play on Sunday against the Washington Football Team.

On Monday, coach Matt LaFleur described King as “day to day” and ruled out the possibility of placing him on injured reserve. He was originally hurt during the Packers’ win over the Cincinnati Bengals.

King has missed three of the Packers’ first six games, including two previously with a concussion.

The Packers started Isaac Yiadom but quickly transitioned to Rasul Douglas after the first series against the Bears. King would be the team’s preferred player over both Yiadom and Douglas as a perimeter cornerback.

While inconsistent, King played his best game of the season before getting hurt in Cincinnati.

The Packers will release the first injury report of the week later on Wednesday. It will include a determination on whether or not King was limited at all during Wednesday’s practice.

According to Spofford, the Packers were without center Josh Myers, safety Darnell Savage, outside linebacker Preston Smith and offensive tackle Dennis Kelly on Wednesday.
