Packers RCB Sam Shields (questionable, concussion) made the trip to Arizona.

Shields still hasn't been cleared, but it puts him on track for Saturday night. His return would be an upgrade on the outside for Green Bay's secondary. ESPN's Rob Demovsky says Shields could have a limited role if active.

Packers RCB Sam Shields (concussion) is listed as questionable for Saturday's Divisional Round game against the Cardinals.

Shields practiced on a limited basis all week. It's unclear if he's passed the league's concussion protocol but it looks like he's getting close. Rookie Quinten Rollins has been filling in for Shields at right corner the last few weeks.
Jan 15 - 2:33 PM

Packers RCB Sam Shields (concussion) returned to practice Wednesday.

Shields has not practiced since suffering a concussion Week 14 against Dallas, so this session is a big step in his progression through the concussion protocol. Coach Mike McCarthy expressed hope about Shields' status Thursday, saying he was close to completing the protocol. Shields should still be considered questionable, but it sounds like he has a chance.
Jan 14 - 11:49 AM

Packers RCB Sam Shields remains in the league's concussion protocol.

Shields is looking likely to miss Saturday's Divisional Round game against the Cardinals. That would again leave Damarious Randall to start opposite Casey Hayward, with Quinten Rollins and Ladarius Gunter picking up the scraps.
Jan 12 - 1:34 PM

Packers RCB Sam Shields (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Redskins.

He was doubtful heading into the weekend. Damarious Randall (groin, probable) and Quinten Rollins will start on the outside with Casey Hayward in the slot against Washington.
Jan 9 - 12:40 PM

Packers RCB Sam Shields (concussion) is listed as doubtful for the Wild Card Round against Washington.

This will be Shields' fourth straight missed game. The Packers added LCB Damarious Randall to their injury report on Friday, but he is listed as probable and may shadow DeSean Jackson in the final game of the Wild Card slate. Randall is a rookie who played safety at Arizona State last season.
Jan 8 - 4:07 PM

Packers RCB Sam Shields remains in the concussion protocol.

Shields has not practiced this week and is extremely unlikely to play Sunday against the Redskins. Damarious Randall was added to the injury report Thursday with a groin issue, but he should be good to go. Randall, Quinten Rollins and Casey Hayward will handle corner duties with Shields sidelined.
Jan 8 - 10:53 AM

Packers RCB Sam Shields remains in the league's concussion protocol.

Shields hasn't played since suffering a brain injury in Week 14. Damarious Randall, Quinten Rollins, and Casey Hayward have been handling corner duties.

Packers RCB Sam Shields (concussion) was downgraded to doubtful for Week 17 against the Vikings.

Shields is set to miss his third game in a row. Quinten Rollins will continue to start in his place. The Packers defense did get some good news Saturday. B.J. Raji (concussion) and Mike Neal (hip) were upgraded to probable.

Packers RCB Sam Shields (concussion) is listed as questionable for Week 17.

He was "limited" in practice all week, which suggests Shields isn't quite out of the woods. Shields has missed each of Green Bay's last two games and the Packers' pass defense has suffered. Stefon Diggs' matchup will improve if Shields can't get the green light ahead of Sunday night's clash with Minnesota.
Jan 1 - 3:44 PM

The Packers downgraded RCB Sam Shields (concussion) to out for Week 16.

Shields will miss his second straight game. It's an upgrade for Michael Floyd, who runs most of his routes on the right side. Quinten Rollins will start for Shields.

Packers RCB Sam Shields (concussion) is listed as doubtful for Week 16.

Shields is on track to miss his second straight game, improving the fantasy matchups for Carson Palmer and Michael Floyd in particular. The Packers will start Quinten Rollins and Damarious Randall on the perimeter at cornerback. Rollins and Randall are both rookies.

Packers coach Mike McCarthy said CB Sam Shields (concussion) has still not been cleared.

"He’s making progress," McCarthy said before Wednesday’s practice. "I know he’s in the meetings today. I’m not sure what his practice status will be." Shields sat out Wednesday's practice, but it is possible he gets in some limited work later in the week. Rookie Quinten Rollins will get the start opposite fellow rookie Damarious Randall if Shields cannot get cleared in time.
