Packers release longtime RB Starks

Running back James Starks, who did not play after sustaining a concussion in a auto accident December 12, was cut by the Packers on Tuesday.

We'll start with the very latest, which is that cornerback Sam Shields seemed to indicate early this morning that he has been released by the Packers. He played 80 games with Green Bay and notched 18 interceptions.

The 30-year played in 76 games for the Packers, rushing for 2,506 yards and nine touchdowns on 618 carries.

Shields had one year remaining on the four-year, $39 million contract he signed before the 2014 season, and was set to count more than $12 million against the 2017 salary cap.

Canada's WestJet Airlines said it turned back a passenger bound for the U.S. on Saturday in order to comply with the order. In Washington, agencies charged with handling immigration and refugee issues grappled with how to interpret the measure.

A few days after the game, coach Mike McCarthy said Shields was still in the concussion protocol.

Shields, 29, missed all but the opening game last season.

The Packers will avoid Shields' $8 million salary for 2017 by cutting him, which should help them find some reinforcements for their secondary.

The concussion Shields suffered against Jacksonville in the opener was the fourth known concussion of his National Football League career and second in a nine-month span.

And to compete against a player who knows his game best, Sydney Morning Herald said Federer needs to conquer his self-doubt first. This is Nadal's fifth time in the semis as he prevented Raonic from matching his record of last year's tournament.

Asked about the ongoing after-effects of his concussion, Shields said, "Some days it's tough headaches, some days it's mild". I'm so used to it that it's just normal. The non-football injury designation of his release indicates that Starks' injury contributed to that. But it's getting better. The charges stem from an October search of his house by narcotics officers that revealed raw marijuana, muffins that contained marijuana, and other drug-related paraphernalia.

This means that because they have no running backs, the Packers are going for sure go for one. He added two more picks in the NFC Championship Game against the Chicago Bears, helping the Packers advance to the Super Bowl, which they won to give Shields his championship ring.

Are the Green Bay Packers making the correct decisions?

Sane threatened with a header that flew wide, and Aguero drew an excellent save from Lloris after a great cross from De Bruyne. Jesus is nearly the saviour as he turns in a cross-cum-shot at the back post but it's ruled out for offside.
