GREEN BAY, Wis. (WBAY) – Green Bay Packers Head Coach Mike McCarthy says running back Eddie Lacy and corner Sam Shields will stay on injured reserve for the rest of the season.

Corner Makinton Dorleant was activated from IR Wednesday.

Lacy has been out since October with an injured ankle. The running back, who will be a free agent in 2017, underwent surgery.

Shields has also been on IR since October for concussion protocol.

McCarthy said guard T.J. Lang is improving from an ankle injury but a “long shot” to play against Philadelphia.

The Packers (4-6) play the Eagles (5-5) Monday at 7:30 p.m.
