As expected, Shields (knee) has been ruled out of Sunday's game against Carolina, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel's Tyler Dunne reports.

Tramon Williams (ankle) is considered a game-time decision, so the Packers could potentially be without their top two cornerbacks against Cam Newton and the Panthers. Reserve cornerbacks Davon House and Casey Hayward will see a lot more action than usual.

Shields (knee) "probably" will sit out Sunday's game against the Panthers, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.

Shields' status for Sunday has not been officially determined, but it appears he will miss at least one game as a result of the knee injury he suffered in Week 6.

Shields (knee) didn't partake in practice Wednesday, Paul Imig of FOX Sports Wisconsin reports. Speaking of his injured cornerbacks, coach Mike McCarthy said, "Sam Shields, Tramon Williams...we'll give them every opportunity to get ready. Tramon is closer than Sam."

Thus, owners should keep a close eye on the corner as the week draws to an end. Shields may come down to a game-time decision, but with 14 tackles (12 solo), six passes defended, and two interceptions through six contests, his relevance as an IDP isn't up to the par set by Williams (32 tackles, six passes defended, and one pick) this season.

The knee injury Shields suffered in Sunday's game is not believed to be serious, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

The full extent of Shields' injury is uncertain, and he could miss this week's game against the Panthers, but head coach Mike McCarthy said he isn't concerned about Shields missing an extended period of time. Shields' participation, or lack thereof, during practice this week will likely determine whether or not he suits up for Week 7.

Shields suffered a knee injury during Sunday's game against the Dolphins and is considered questionable to return.

Shields' injury is a bit curious, as the cornerback went down while trotting out to his pre-snap position late in the third quarter Sunday. Prior to being injured, the Florida native Shields intercepted his second pass of this season. However, with his status going forward unknown, Davon House should fill-in at one of the Packers' outside cornerback positions.

Shields recorded three tackles (all solo), an interception, and three pass deflections in Sunday's victory over the Bears.

Shields made a number of plays Sunday, and he also played a key role in limiting Brandon Marshall to just two receptions. Shields has tallied 13 tackles (11 solo) an interception, and five pass deflections through four weeks.

Shields made two tackles and defended a pass in Thursday's loss to the Seahawks.

Shields nearly picked off a pass early in the game, but he was otherwise quiet from a fantasy perspective. He could see more activity in the coming weeks as the Packers' top cover corner.

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the Packers are "trying to give" free agent CB Sam Shields a deal worth less than $6 million annually.

Shields is believed to be seeking $7 million annually, so there's a fairly significant gap to be bridged. A deal signed by Bears CB Tim Jennings in January was worth $5.6 million per year, and Rapoport says that's where GM Ted Thompson values Shields. Shields' agent has made it clear through media reports that his client does not intend to re-sign with Green Bay before March 11.
