Starting CB Sam Shields returns to practice for Packers

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.
