Packers vs. Broncos: Shields, Rollins ruled out with shoulder injuries

New, comment

The Green Bay Packers are down two cornerbacks tonight.

The team announced that cornerbacks Sam Shields and rookie Quinten Rollins will both miss the remainder of the game due to shoulder injuries.

Shields suffered the injury and limped off the field on the Packers' second defensive drive against the Denver Broncos. He was taken to the locker room shortly after by the Packers' medical staff. Right after the injury, the Broncos capped an 83-yard drive with a 1-yard touchdown run by Ronnie Hillman. It's unclear how Rollins sustained his injury.

With Shields and Rollins out, the Packers have given reps to second-year corner Demetri Goodson on the outside opposite of rookie Damarious Randall. Veteran Casey Hayward was playing on the outside, but has moved back into his natural slot position.

Behind those three defensive backs, the Packers only have Micah Hyde active to play cornerback. Rookie LaDarius Gunter was among today's inactives.
