Packers vs. Lions: Sam Shields inactive for Green Bay

Sam Shields will not play for the Packers on Sunday, and Casey Hayward will start in his place yet again.

Jeff Hanisch-US PRESSWIRE

The only major news to come out of the inactive players announcement for Sunday's game between the Packers and Lions is that Sam Shields is inactive. He was listed as questionable coming into the week and Casey Hayward was always expected to get more snaps than him against Detroit, but there was some hope that he could dress. The other inactive players are as expected.

Manning was also listed as questionable, while Boykin is a healthy scratch. The others were previously listed as out. There's not a ton of news over on the Lions side either. The biggest news for them is positive: Chris Houston is active after being listed as questionable.

We'll have a game thread up shortly. As a reminder, kickoff is at 1 pm ET, 12 pm CT, and you can catch the game on FOX in all areas that do not have another local game.
