Sam Shields ruled out for Thursday's game vs. Bears

Sam Shields will have to sit out for another week as the Packers announced that he has been ruled out for Thursday's game against the Chicago Bears.

Shields suffered a concussion during the Packers season opener against the Jacksonville Jaguars and has been under concussion protocol ever since. Packers head coach Mike McCarthy said during Tuesday's press conference that Shields' progress is taking much longer than expected and the team is just taking it day-by-day.

With the announcement of Shields being out, the Packers will be without at least two of their top cornerbacks on Thursday. Quinten Rollins suffered a groin injury over the weekend and he did not play in the game on Sunday vs. the Cowboys. He has been ruled out for Thursday. Damarious Randall re-injured his groin on Sunday and had to leave the game. His status for Thursday is unknown.
