As per CBS Sports, Rasul suffered a shoulder injury in his Packers debut against Washington and was questionable to return. Rasul was injured in the first half of the game and had only made one tackle before leaving.

He had nine solo tackles in a 24-21 win over the Cardinals on October 28 and sealed the victory for his team by intercepting a pass with 15 seconds left in the game.
