Arlington, Texas - The secondary situation was as bleak as it has even been in a season where injuries have been the Monday morning story for the Green Bay Packers.
Just before halftime, cornerback Charles Woodson was out with something that looked very painful, and as it turned out he had a broken collarbone. Safety Nick Collins was fading fast so he headed in to the locker room early before halftime for an IV. Sam Shields had hurt his shoulder as well. All three were out.
"When somebody goes down, somebody has to step up," said Shields.
That somebody ended up being Shields.
Though the shoulder was hurting, he returned to the game to finish. He did it without treatment.
"No they just put me back out there," said Shields. "When I fell, it felt like something popped out. I mean, it wasn't feeling right."
Collins, who has played hurt all season, also returned.
Shields finished the game with 2 solo tackles, and though got beat on one touchdown had another solid game for the Packers and contributed a lot to their Super Bowl victory.
