Packers' Sam Shields Exits Game with Left Leg Injury

Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports

On the 49ers first drive, cornerback Sam Shields has his left leg rolled up on by teammate Andy Mulumba.

Did you really think the injuries would stop just because the regular season is over?

On the 49ers opening drive, cornerback Sam Shields injured his left leg while tackling 49ers receiver Michael Crabtree. During the conclusion of the play, linebacker Andy Mulumba rolled up on Shields, pinning his ankle beneath him. Shields required assistance to leave the field, and was soon after the Packers' medical staff carted him off to the locker room.

The team declared Shields "questionable to return." However, given the severity of the injury, he's likely done for the game.
