Packers' Sam Shields: Placed on injured reserve

The Packers placed Shields (concussion) on injured reserve Tuesday.

Shields has not definitively been ruled out for the season, but he will be out at least eight more weeks, so he will not be eligible to play again until Week 14 at the earliest. This is the fifth concussion Shields has suffered in his career, so the Packers will continue proceeding with caution, and it should not come as a surprise if he is unable to return this season.
