Packers CB Sam Shields Officially Ruled Out For Sunday

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — The Green Bay Packers say Sam Shields won’t play in Sunday night’s game against the Minnesota Vikings after the cornerback was evaluated for a concussion this week.

The Packers initially listed Shields as doubtful on the injury report before ruling him out on Saturday. He missed practice this week while going through the NFL’s concussion protocol .

Shields got hurt late in last week’s season-opening win at Jacksonville. He also missed four games late last season because of a concussion.

Reserve Josh Hawkins will also miss the Vikings game with a hamstring injury. The Packers were down to three healthy cornerbacks on their active roster in Damarious Randall, Quinten Rollins and LaDarius Gunter. Micah Hyde, who plays throughout the secondary, can also slot in at cornerback.
