160113-nn1GREEN BAY — Packers cornerback Sam Shields has still not fully cleared the concussion protocol, but Head Coach Mike McCarthy said he would do some work on the practice field on Wednesday. Left tackle David Bakhtiari, who has missed the last three games with an ankle injury, is slated to practice as well.

Shields sustained his concussion in Week 14 vs. Dallas and has missed Green Bay’s last four games. He had returned to practice once before during that time for limited work but was not cleared and never returned to the lineup.

“Sam had a really good workout yesterday,” McCarthy said. “He’ll do some on-field work today. He’s still not totally through the protocol. He’s getting close.”

Bakhtiari was initially injured in Week 15 at Oakland and hasn’t played since. For the last two games, it’s been a game-time decision to deactivate him.

“We’ll see how he comes out of the work,” McCarthy said.

Wide receiver Davante Adams (knee) would not practice on Wednesday, McCarthy added. will have more following practice and locker room interviews.
