Key Defensive Player Out for at Least 8 Weeks

One of the key Green Bay Packers players on defense will be sidelined for longer than expected. 

Not much time for the Packers prepare for the Bears and that much time to think about the troubles against the Cowboys on Sunday.

But as Green Bay tries to get better in a secondary, stopping opposing quarterbacks, the team has been dealt a major blow today at Sam Shields the veteran will miss at least eight weeks.

He has been placed on injured reserve and now the packers are in two positions trying to replace a leader and concern for their teammate and friend.
