Head coach Mike McCarthy said Thursday that Shields remains in the league's concussion protocol, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Shields visited a concussion specialist at some point this week, but it's not clear if that had any effect on his status. He will need to be cleared of any concussion symptoms before returning to practice, and will likely need to get in some practice time before returning to game action.

Shields (concussion) did not practice Wednesday, Michael Cohen of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

EDGE Analysis

Shields was able to fit in a workout on Monday after missing the Packers' Week 2 loss to the Vikings. However, until he's able to join his team in practice, he'll remain highly questionable for the team's Week 3 matchup with the Lions.

Shields (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday's Week 2 tilt against the Vikings, Michael Cohen of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

EDGE Analysis

Shields was initially listed as doubtful in the hopes that he could participate in the team's walkthrough on Saturday, which he ultimately was held out of. His absence leaves the team with just three healthy corner backs. Look for Damarious Randall, Quinten Rollins, and Ladarius Gunter to see a significant amount of snaps in Minnesota.

Shields (concussion) has been listed as doubtful for the Packers' Sunday night matchup with the Vikings, Rob Demovsky of ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

Shields hasn't practiced since suffering his third career concussion in Week 1. The Packers will be having a walk through on Saturday and Shields' participation, or lack thereof, will give a clearer indication of his status for the game.

Head coach Mike McCarthy said that Saturday will be a key day for determining Shields' (concussion) availability for Sunday's game against Minnesota.

EDGE Analysis

With Green Bay facing Minnesota on Sunday Night Football, the Packers will hold a Saturday practice, though it will presumably just be a walkthrough. Shields was evaluated by the medical staff Friday morning, and it sounds as if he's expected to miss at least one more practice. A Saturday return might give him a shot to play in Sunday's game.t

Shields remains in the league's concussion protocol as of Thursday morning, according to head coach Mike McCarthy.

EDGE Analysis

Shields will be forced to sit out of practice for the second day in a row while he continues to recover from the concussion he suffered in Week 1. His status for Sunday's game against the Vikings remains uncertain, but he will likely have to get some sort of work in Friday to have a shot to play this week.

Shields (head) remains in the league's concussion protocol as of Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

There still isn't an update on Shields' Week 2 status as he continues to undergo tests and treatment for his head injury suffered during Week 1's win over the Jaguars. Shields has dealt with concussion issues in the past, which could affect his status come Sunday night when the Packers play in Minnesota. Quinten Rollins and Ladarius Gunter are the top two candidates at this point to fill in opposite Damarious Randall at cornerback if Shields is unable to play.

Shields is currently undergoing concussion protocol, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

EDGE Analysis

After a relatively successful job defending Allen Robinson on Sunday, Shields was forced out of the game in the second half after suffering a concussion. It should be noted he missed four games toward the end of last season as he recovered from a serious concussion. Either Quinten Rollins or Ladarius Gunter figure to fill in at cornerback opposite Damarious Randall If Shields does not pass the protocol before Week 2.
