The Green Bay Packers have listed concussed cornerback Sam Shields as questionable on their official injury report for Monday night’s game.
It’s very possible Shields will be able to play though. He just has to complete the league’s concussion protocol.
“Sam Shields is obviously going through the protocol. The medical staff has told me he still has a chance to play,” Packers coach Mike McCarthy said. “He’ll be given the opportunity to play in the game if everything goes right.”
Shields suffered the concussion during the Packers’ win over New England and didn’t finish the game. Davon House took his place and played fairly well.
That being said, we can’t name a Patriots’ receiver other than Brandon LaFell. The Packers will be facing Julio Jones and Roddy White on Monday night. Both of those guys are far superior to any New England wide receiver.
If we had to guess, we’re guessing Shields plays.
There’s better news on the injured defensive linemen. Both Mike Daniels and Josh Boyd missed some practice time this week with soreness.
Both are listed as probable for Monday night and McCarthy said he anticipates both players will be full strength for the game.
Please take a poll of total,packers:
Q. If we win our next 3 games and lock up div. ch. And bye should we,lay down vs. lions if a loss means the lions get the WC over the she hawks? I for one think it would be a nice payback for the fail Mary game.
That would require some other loss by the Lions, against either the Bucs or Vikings at home, or Bears at Soldier Field. I don’t see that happening.
Besides, presuming the Seahawks are not able to win the division against the plummeting Cardinals, I’d rather send them down to New Orleans or Philly. Tough places to play, especially for a team that does not travel well, and certainly does not fare well back East. Then if they somehow survive, they’d likely face us at Lambeau Field. That would be sweet revenge indeed.
Then all we would have to do is wait for that righteous Packer dying of cancer to do the right thing regarding Lance Easley.
Anyway, I am far more concerned about Shields at this point. Questionable almost always means out. Gamesmanship abounds, don’t you know….

I would think that if McCarthy had that question asked he would say, That is how losers think.
This article is about Sam Shields…I think.
The Packers lose at home?..On purpose? You people losing your fucking minds? lol
BTW…Becareful wishing to play the Seahawks, if you question why, stayed tuned to the last 3 weeks of the season.
No bring them on. I want to see them crushed at Lambeau.
then let’s see if we can bring champ bailey out of his recent “retirement” and save shields for the remaining sunbelt games, e.g., TB and AZ. shields seems as fragile as an icicle in cold wx late season games vs. top opp. he did play college at sunny miami U. after all…? champ can still run a 40 yd. dash under 4.30 sec., no?
Saw shields at grocery store Thursday @ 4:00. So they must have sent him home. I don’t think it’s likely he will play.
