Starting CB Sam Shields returns to practice for Packers

Posted: Updated:

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) - Starting cornerback Sam Shields has returned to Green Bay Packers practice with the team preparing for an NFC divisional-round playoff game against Arizona.

Shields was limited in practice Wednesday. Shields suffered a concussion in Week 14 against Dallas, and he has missed every game since, including last week's win against Washington in the wild-card game.

Getting Shields back would be a boost for a secondary that must contend with veteran Larry Fitzgerald and the Cardinals' speedy receivers on Saturday night.

Cornerback Quinten Rollins missed practice for the Packers with a quadriceps injury.

On offense, receiver Davante Adams sat out practice with a right knee injury. Rollins and Adams got hurt in the Redskins game.

Starting left tackle David Bakhtiari, who has an ankle injury, was limited in practice.
