Green Bay Packers manager Mike McCarthy announced Wednesday that conjunction would be activated off harmed reserve. Instead, that nomination went to undrafted rookie cornerback Makinton Dorleant.
Lacy, a Packers’ heading rusher, went on harmed haven on Oct. 20 and subsequently underwent medicine on his left ankle. There was wish during a time that Lacy could lapse late in a season.
Shields, a Packers’ tip cornerback, hasn’t played given he postulated a concussion in Week 1. He went on harmed haven dual days before Lacy.
“It’s hapless for Eddie and it’s hapless for Sam, though formed on all a medical information and a conversations to this point, that’s where we are,” McCarthy said.
McCarthy wouldn’t contend either Lacy and Shields had setbacks or either this preference was formed on a need for another cornerback for Monday night’s diversion during Philadelphia. The Packers mislaid cornerback Demetri Goodson to a knee damage in Sunday’s detriment during Washington. Dorleant has been on harmed haven given Sept. 5 given a hamstring damage he postulated in a preseason.
“Once again, these are some-more medical decisions,” McCarthy said. “And this is unequivocally a preference that’s been done from a submit of a medical staff.”
There’s no pledge that Lacy or Shields ever plays for a Packers again. Lacy will be a giveaway representative this offseason, and Shields’ concussion story might force a Packers to pierce on. Shields has one year remaining on a four-year, $39 million agreement he sealed in 2014, though his latest concussion was a fourth of his NFL career and second within 9 months.
McCarthy pronounced he did not know either Shields would be privileged to play again.
“Really, a review with Sam, we know quite cave with him, is he needs to get healthy for himself and his family,” McCarthy said. “That needs to be his focus, and it is his focus. That’s what we’re focusing on.”
