Shields questionable, Hyde probable, Jolly doubtful for Sunday

Packers CB Sam Shields missed his third straight practice on Friday with a hamstring injury and is listed as questionable on the injury report for Sunday’s game.

Shields was a last-minute scratch prior to last week’s game and his recovery has been slow, but Head Coach Mike McCarthy indicated the team will wait all the way up until Sunday morning to see if Shields can play.

“It’s been up and down,” McCarthy said after Friday’s practice. “We’ll see how it goes. We’ve got 48 hours is how we’re looking at it. We’ll obviously give Sam every chance to get ready.”

Another cornerback, rookie Micah Hyde, missed his second straight day of practice on Friday with a groin injury but is listed as probable. Hyde was the full-time nickel back last week against the Giants with Shields out and Davon House moving into the starting lineup opposite Tramon Williams.

“I feel pretty confident he’s going to go,” McCarthy said. “This is something that’s been bothering him throughout the week, so we were smart with him yesterday and today.”

Up front on defense, DE Johnny Jolly is doubtful with a groin injury after sitting out practice all week. Jolly has been a key run defender for the Packers this season, and his absence could be troubling against Vikings RB Adrian Peterson, particularly with DE Ryan Pickett playing at less than full strength with a knee injury.

McCarthy suggested that Jolly’s doubtful status is due in part to the quick turnaround coming next week, with the Packers traveling to Detroit to play the Lions on Thanksgiving.

On the offensive side, RT Don Barclay will miss his second straight game, with Marshall Newhouse starting in his place.
