Sam Shields got concussion vs. St. Louis Rams, coach Mike McCarthy says

Green Bay Packers cornerback Sam Shields sustained a concussion in Sunday’s game against the St. Louis Rams, Packers coach Mike McCarthy confirmed at his press conference today.

Shields will go through the normal testing process mandated by the NFL regarding concussions.

Shields was attempting to run back an interception from the end zone when he was blindsided by a tackle.

Instead of taking a knee in the end zone, Shields ran across the end zone, trying to take the ball back up the field, and he was drilled hard.

Shields will go through the concussion tests, then he needs to be cleared by an independent neurologist before he's able to play.

Head coach Mike McCarthy says it's a lesson for the other players.

"Be smart. Don't want players taking unnecessary hits. You have to learn from that."
