The Green Bay Packers got one bit of good news Monday: Cornerback Sam Shields' shoulder injury, suffered during a 29-10 loss Sunday at Denver, isn't serious, according to a league source.

Shields, who left the game in the first quarter and did not return, is day to day, the source said.

The Packers also lost rookie cornerback Quinten Rollins to a shoulder injury against the Broncos. His status remains unknown.

Linebacker Clay Matthews left the game with a left ankle injury in the third quarter, but was able to return to action after having the ankle re-taped.

The Packers (6-1) will travel to Carolina to face the Panthers on Sunday. Carolina (6-0) hosts Indianapolis on Monday night.
