Cornerback Damarious Randall moves forward after Green Bay Packers’ benching
GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — The Green Bay Packers are hoping that starting cornerback Damarious Randall has learned from a very visible mistake.
Randall was benched in the second half of the 35-14 win on Sept. 28 against the Chicago Bears. After a long weekend off for the team, Randall appeared to be back in the regular rotation at cornerback when the Packers returned to practice Wednesday.
“Well he’s a young player. Young players are going to make mistakes and learn from them,” defensive coordinator Dom Capers said Thursday.
“So we felt that Damarious has done that and we’re moving forward.”
A first-round draft pick in 2015, Randall was shown in a replay lining up in the slot on his last play against Bears receiver Kendall Wright, who caught a 5-yard touchdown pass with 8 seconds left in the second quarter.
