GREEN BAY -- Packers cornerback Sam Shields has been placed on injured reserve, the team announced Tuesday.
Shields suffered a concussion in the Packers' Week 1 win against the Jacksonville Jaguars, and hasn't seen the field since. He will be eligible to return in eight weeks.
Earlier Monday, the defensive back posted on his Instagram account that he would be out for those eight weeks, but hinted at a possible return late in the season:
The seven-year pro has netted 18 interceptions and started 62 games in his Green Bay career.
