Packers | Week 3 Inactives (Sun Sep 25, 11:31 AM) - The Green Bay Packers have declared LB Clay Matthews, LB Datone Jones, QB Joe Callahan, OT Kyle Murphy, DL Letroy Guion, FS Morgan Burnett, CB Sam Shields inactive for Week 3.

Our View: The Packers are missing key starters at every level of the defense. This could be one of the highest scoring games of the day with the Lions also down two of their three best defensive players.

Packers | Sam Shields to miss more time (Sun Sep 25, 09:40 AM) - Green Bay Packers CB Sam Shields (concussion) is expected to be 'cleared to play in a few more weeks,' according to a source.

Our View: This could be overly optimistic, as Shields has had four concussions in his career. He is the Packers best cover corner and opposing matchups will benefit from his absence. Consider Shields out indefinitely.

Packers | Friday injury report for Green Bay (Fri Sep 23, 05:28 PM) - Green Bay Packers CB Sam Shields (concussion) has been ruled out for Week 3. SS Morgan Burnett (groin), DT Letroy Guion (knee), DE Datone Jones (knee), OG T.J. Lang (hip) and LB Clay Matthews (ankle, hamstring) are listed as questionable. Shields, Matthews, Jones, Guion and Burnett did not participate in practice, while Lang was limited during practice. FS Chris Banjo (hamstring), LB Jayrone Elliott (hamstring), CB Josh Hawkins (hamstring), CB Micah Hyde (ankle) and WR Jeff Janis (hand) fully participated in practice and are not on the injury report. The Packers did not practice Friday, so this is an estimation.

Our View: Shields being out is a boon for Marvin Jones, Golden Tate and Matthew Stafford. The Lions-Packers game could be one of the highest scoring matchups of Week 3.
