Shields hoping to be back next week

Nov. 6, 2013

After injuring his elbow at practice on Aug. 6, Packers cornerback Sam Shields believes he’s about another week away from returning to the field. The third-year cornerback has missed four practices and last Thursday’s preseason game with the elbow, but said he’s been going through treatment and has seen increased movement in it. Shields had a slow start to camp before the injury, but looks to have an opportunity to contribute when he returns with cornerback Davon House now out for two-to-three weeks because of shoulder injury he sustained in the Chargers’ game. With the team’s No. 2 cornerback spot still up for grabs, Shields is anxious to get back, but knows you can’t rush it. When he returns, however, Shields wants to continue to show his coaches he can be physical. “I’m ready,” Shields said. “Keep doing what I’m supposed to do. Not a lot of mess-ups and like everyone keeps talking about, tackle. Getting them to trust that I can tackle.” -whodkiew@greenbaypressgazette.com and follow him on Twitter @WesHod.
