GREEN BAY (AP) -

Packers cornerback Sam Shields has been ruled out of Sunday's game against Carolina with a knee injury.

Shields, who leads the team with two interceptions, suffered what coach Mike McCarthy says is a knee strain in the last weekend's win over Miami.

Fellow starting cornerback Tramon Williams is questionable for the game after suffering an ankle injury against the Dolphins. Williams has missed only one game in his eight-year pro career.

Green Bay (4-2) has been preparing the young tandem of Davon House and Casey Hayward to fill in at cornerback. Defensive end Datone Jones is out for a second straight game with an ankle injury, and linebacker Jamari Lattimore is questionable after suffering a neck injury in the last game.
