Matthews doubtful, Shields out for this week

Posted by Mike Spofford on November 21, 2012 – 2:43 pm

LB Clay Matthews did not return to the practice field on Wednesday, and Mike McCarthy labeled him as “doubtful” for this week. Matthews missed last week’s game in Detroit with a hamstring injury, and if Matthews can’t play this week, it would mark the first time in his four-year career that he will miss consecutive games.

In other injury news, CB Sam Shields (ankle) has already been ruled out, and McCarthy said it could be a couple more weeks yet for Shields, who will miss his fifth straight game this week.

“He’s not making the improvement we hoped,” McCarthy said. “It’s a little more serious injury than we anticipated.”

“It’s frustrating,” Shields said. “I’ve just got to keep my mind positive, keep getting in rehab and trying to get better to get back out on the field to get ready for the stretch down the road.”

    What exactly happened to Sam Shields to make him miss nearly half the season? I know they say ankle and shin but wow…what happened? He missed 5 games already and can miss 2-3 more…please inform me on the problem making it so serious.

    I heard high ankle sprain but I wonder if there wasn’t a minor fracture.

    Shields is just another series of injuries that are not known … Packers mgt are very tight lipped … CIA has nothing on TT ! bottom line it is what it is no matter what is reported.

    Detroit game is one thing but the midgets are another story. This game would be a tough task being healthy nevermind missing so many starters. Good luck GB and strengthen the hammies in the offseason Clay to try and prevent this crap from reoccuring.

    Foods such as cauliflower, eggs and meat are notorious for producing smelly farts. Get your gas mask apperatus prepared! Always remember to hold the fart in your lungs for as long as possible; I count to fifty!

    Sam Shields not playing is whatever. He has been playing sub par since 2010. The Claymaker on the otherhand will be missed for the giants game. Hopefully Moses can step up like he did in the Lions game. Heyward and House have been playing very well and hope that continues.

    I think something stinks here with the packers training staff. so many players are getting injured, then later on finding out that the injuries are worse than initially thought (i.e. Jennings, Perry, Woodson, Shields)

    Most of the players hurt are younger with the exception of Woodson…. why aren’t they in better shape for the long season? I hope the Packers take a closer look at their off season conditioning program for all players. What ever isn’t being done has shown over the past couple of seasons. The problem is getting worse. Each game seems like a patchwork effort and will only take this team so far. Go Pack.

    The packers need to do something with all these injuries its not cool at all every week someone is getting hurt. C mon Packers let’s get healthy and let’s go after the midgets this is not the time to loss any games its time to make things happen and its starts sunday night primetime baby! GO PACKERS!
