Sam Shields picks one off

Rams' CB Sam Shields recorded one solo tackle and one interception in their Week 2 matchup against the Arizona Cardinals.

Fantasy Impact

Shields' interception was beautiful, and he ran the route for the receiver before stepping smoothly in front of him for an easy pick. He had a missed tackle in the backfield later in the game, but other than that didn't have much impact on the game.

Sam Shields cut by Green Bay

The Green Bay Packers have released defensive back Sam Shields on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact

Shields is the second long-time veteran Packers player to be released in the past 24 hours -- the team also cut James Starks Tuesday. Shields, who played seven seasons in Green Bay, only appeared in one game in 2016. He suffered a concussion in Week 1 and missed the remainder of the year as a result. He'll likely be signed by a new club this offseason if and when he is granted medial clearance to resume football activities.

Sam Shields expected to be released by Packers

Sam Shields is expected to be released by the Green Bay Packers, according to ESPN NFL Nation Packers reporter Rob Demovsky. Shields missed most of the season after a Week 1 concussion landed him on injured reserve, and while cornerback is one of Green Bay's bigger needs heading into the offseason, they seem interested in moving on from Shields and his contract.

Fantasy Impact

Not only did Shields miss most of the season, but he was recently charged with drug and paraphernalia possession stemming from an arrest in October. Shields has a cap hit of $12,125,000 next season, and the Packers can save $9,000,000 of that by releasing him. Shields has given no indication that he is considering retirement after a serious concussion, though that is certainly a possibility at this point.

Sam Shields placed on injured reserve

The Green Bay Packers have placed CB Sam Shields (concussion) on the injured reserve list.

Fantasy Impact

Shields suffered his fifth career concussion this year but it appears that he could return to the field in eight weeks per reports. The Packers are decimated at the cornerback position and will need their reserves to step up while Shields and Damarious Randall are on the mend.

Sam Shields ruled out Week 2

Sam Shields has been ruled out for the Packers' Week 2 contest against the Vikings.

Fantasy Impact

The absence of the veteran CB could make life a little easier for Sam Bradford and the Vikings' WRs, but the Packers' D/ST is still tough, and Minnesota isn't expected to see a favorable game script in this one.
