Key Packer officially ruled out vs. Vikings.


Published on by The Football Feed in NFL News

The Green Bay Packers will shorthanded on Sunday against a division rival.

Packers' cornerback Sam Shields has been downgraded to out with a concussion for his team's Sunday night matchup with the Minnesota Vikings after initially being ruled doubtful.

Shields, who has a history of concussions, was placed in concussion protocol after leaving the Packers' Week 1 game against the Arizona Cardinals.

The Packers were expecting Shields to start and play the majority of snaps at cornerback opposite Damarious Randall.

Second-year pro Quinten Rollins is expected to take on Shields' role this week against the Vikings.
