Packernation has been waiting for word on Sam Shields and Tramon Williams after coach McCarthy111512-NFL-Tramon-Williams-LO_20121115123633113_600_400 has said that neither’s injury was long term. But today, word came out that Sam Shields was out for Sunday’s game against Carolina and Tramon Williams is questionable. This, along with the absence of Datone Jones for a second game, make the Lambeau Field contest against the Carolina Panthers the first with major questions at the start position this year. 

“We’re still going through the process. He’s better today than he was yesterday,” said coach McCarthy of Williams, who has played in 128 of 129 games in his career. The absence of Williams would mean the Packers can’t field either of their starting corners against Cam Newton and the Panthers.

Most Dangerous Substance on Earth - Packer Offense

The Panthers’ defense has struggled this season after being one of the best in the league last year. But Cam Newton and the Panthers’ offense scored 37 points on the Bengals last week in a 37-37 tie in Cincinnati. And this week, Jonathan Stewart is expected to play.

ShieldsThe absence of Shields and possible absence of Williams give Davon House and Casey Hayward a chance to shine. Both of these players have shown themselves as capable but need to put together full games against a good opponent.

This game may very well be a chance for backups to make a difference.

    Sounds likes Jones should play ILB position. He’s fast and will learn the position quickly. This is where the Packers are the weakest and need help.
