Packers CB Sam Shields ruled out for game at Oakland

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) The Green Bay Packers won't have Pro Bowl cornerback Sam Shields for Sunday's game at Oakland.

Coach Mike McCarthy said Shields, who suffered a concussion in Green Bay's last game, won't accompany the team on Friday's flight to Oakland.

The NFC North-leading Packers (9-4) expect to go with rookies Damarious Randall and Quinten Rollins as well as Casey Hayward as their primary cornerbacks against the Raiders (6-7).

Randall, the team's first-round draft pick, took over for the injured Shields in the first half of Green Bay's 28-7 win over the Dallas Cowboys last Sunday.

Randall didn't allow a catch by Cowboys star receiver Dez Bryant the rest of the game. Bryant's only reception, for nine yards, came early in the game with Shields on the field.
