Green Bay Packers cornerback Sam Shields left Sunday’s game against the New England Patriots with a concussion, and he is being listed as questionable for Monday Night Football against the Atlanta Falcons.
Shields has not been able to practice this week, so this decreases his chances of suiting up despite having an extra day to rest.
Davon House and Casey Hayward will continue to play in Shields’ absence if he is unable to go against the Falcons. The Packers were able to manage without Shields against the Patriots, but they are hoping to get him back on the field soon.
Here is a tweet from Pro Football Talk updating on Shields’ concussion.
