Draft Scout Sam Shields News
01/18/16 - CB Sam Shields returned to action and made the start in the overtime loss at Arizona on Saturday night. Shields missed the previous four games, including the opening-round playoff win at the Washington Redskins, because of a concussion. Shields had two of the Packers' six pass breakups against the Cardinals, but the veteran standout also dropped what could have been as many as three interceptions of passes thrown by Carson Palmer.
01/15/16 - CB Sam Shields (concussion) had limited participation in practice Thursday for the second straight day. The veteran starter has missed the last four games because of the head injury. Head coach Mike McCarthy expressed optimism before Thursday's practice that Shields could finally be cleared medically to play Saturday night in the divisional playoff at Arizona. "The work today will obviously, hopefully, complete the (league-mandated) protocol," McCarthy said. "I hope today is the point that he completes the protocol."
01/13/16 - CB Sam Shields (concussion) participated in practice Wednesday, the team's first on-field work of its shortened week between playoff games. Head coach Mike McCarthy said before practice that Shields remained in the NFL-mandated protocol for players with head injuries, but his heavy involvement in team segments during the jog-through at the start of practice is encouraging.
01/11/16 - CB Sam Shields (concussion) missed a fourth straight game Sunday, when Green Bay rolled to a 17-point win at Washington in the wild-card round of the playoffs. The status of Shields, the team's top cornerback, for the divisional-round matchup with the Cardinals in Arizona on Saturday night won't be known until later in the week.
01/08/16 - CB Sam Shields was listed as doubtful for Sunday's NFC wild-card against the Washington Redskins due to the concussion he suffered on Dec. 13. Shields missed the final three regular-season games due to the injury and the club was hopeful he'd be back for its first playoff game. But he remains in the NFL concussion protocol and needs to clear that first.
