Sam Shields DB GB 13 Days

Shields (concussion) had two tackles (zero solo) in Monday's victory over the Falcons.

Shields suited up after sitting out practice all week due to a concussion, but he was largely ineffective covering Julio Jones, and was ultimately benched in the fourth quarter. He figures to practice this week, which should help his chances of improving his play in the Packers' next game Sunday against the Bills.

Shields (concussion) will suit up Monday against the Falcons.

Shields did not practice all week and needed to be cleared to play Monday, but it appears he was given the green light to suit up, as he was not listed among the Packers' inactives. Expect to see him often across from the Falcons' top receiver, Julio Jones.

Shields (concussion) is questionable for Monday's game against Atlanta.

Shields didn't practice all week, but there's a chance for him to gain clearance prior to Monday's game. With just 30 tackles on the year, he likely isn't an IDP consideration, anyway.

Shields (concussion) didn't practice Thursday, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

There's been no sign that Shields has cleared the league's concussion protocol, placing the Packers one step closer to trotting out Davon House opposite fellow cornerback Tramon Williams in Week 14.

Shields was forced out of Sunday's game against the Patriots with a concussion.

Prior to his exit, Shields -- who entered the contest with 29 tackles and two picks in nine games -- had recorded just one tackle Sunday.

Shields left Sunday's game in the second quarter to be evaluated for a concussion.

Shields will have to pass the league's standard tests in order to return, and if he is diagnosed with a concussion, he would miss the rest of the contest. Davon House will replace Shields in most packages if he's unable to return, representing a matchup opposing quarterback Tom Brady will look to exploit.

Shields tallied six tackles (all solo) and deflected a pass in Sunday's victory over the Bears.

Shields returned to action Sunday after missing the previous two games with a knee injury. His six tackles represented a season high, but he just missed a big fantasy day by dropping an interception that he may have been able to return for a touchdown.

Shields (knee) is listed as probable for Sunday night's game against the Bears, Packers.com reports.

Shields will play for the first time since suffering his knee injury Oct. 12 against Miami. His return is a major boost to the Packers' secondary (he picked off Jay Cutler in the teams' first meeting this season), but Shields doesn't post a lot of tackles, so he's a boom-or-bust IDP relying almost solely on interceptions.

Shields (knee) practiced in full Wednesday, Paul Imig of FOX Sports Wisconsin reports.

With two DNPs and the bye week behind him, Shields' knee injury is a thing of the past. He'll line up opposite Tramon Williams, as usual, Sunday against the Bears, but outside of two interceptions, Shields has supplied just 14 tackles (12 solo) and six passes defended for IDP owners.

Shields (knee) is inactive for Sunday night's game against the Saints.

Shields was considered doubtful prior to being confirmed as inactive Sunday, so his absence doesn't come as a surprise. After missing last weekend's game as well, Shields will use Sunday night and the Packers' ensuing bye week to rest his knee. If all goes well, Shields may be available Nov. 9 versus the Bears.
