Shields shining so far in camp for Packers


GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- The Green Bay Packers' Family Night scrimmage has been a stage in years past for lesser-known players to make a case for their place on the team.

One of this year's candidates is cornerback Sam Shields, an undrafted free agent from Miami who has been impressive in the first week of training camp.

Shields has been a quick study in the Packers' talent-laden secondary. Whether flying in for an interception or making up ground fast to break up a pass, Shields is producing a big play almost daily.

Now he will have a chance to shine Saturday night, when the Packers hold their intrasquad scrimmage in front of a huge crowd at Lambeau Field. This is the 10th year of the scrimmage, a family themed event that annually draws more than 50,000 fans.
