Packers defensive coordinator Dom Capers has been impressed by the play of cornerback Davon House the last two weeks.

“I think he’s played his best, which is encouraging,” said Capers.

“The week before, you saw him get off to a great start at Baltimore and he made the nice interception (Sunday against Cleveland). I thought he did a good job really utilizing his length down in the red area where they tried to throw the ball up two or three times down there and he was able to go up with bigger receivers. They did have big receivers. So I thought he matched up well. He did a nice job in his press coverage. So again the combination that we have outside with Sam (Shields) and Davon and Tramon (Williams), I think that gives us some flexibility.”

House has battled injuries during his three NFL seasons but said he’s feeling good now.

“This is the most I've been healthy,” said House. “I always knew I can play, especially since my rookie year on the practice squad trying to cover Greg (Jennings) and Jordy (Nelson) and them. I said, ‘Well I can do this’ and then coming out week one pre-season last year I was like, ‘Oh yeah, I can most definitely play at this level and be good at it.’ It's just that last year I was limited with my harness and then coming back at the beginning of this year and just getting back into the swing of things. Now, the sky is the limit. With a healthy House, anything is good.”
