Shields, Rollins return; Bulaga, Randall sit
The musical chairs at cornerback continued for the Green Bay Packers on Wednesday.
Sam Shields (shoulder) and Quinten Rollins (neck) returned to practice after missing Sunday’s 37-29 loss to Carolina. Rollins appeared to be doing more than Shields, who seemed to be limited in his reps.
Meanwhile, rookie Damarious Randall and right tackle Bryan Bulaga, who played every snap against Carolina, didn’t participate in the portion of practice open to the media for undisclosed reasons, though both recently spent time on the injury report with ankle and knee injuries, respectively.
Cornerback Casey Hayward remains in the concussion protocol and didn't attend practice. Tight end Andrew Quarless (torn MCL), who’s currently on temporary injure reserve, was eligible to start practice Wednesday, but also didn't appear.
As Packers coach Mike McCarthy forecasted, running back Eddie Lacy (groin) looked like a full participant after leaving in the third quarter against the Panthers and not returning. Outside linebacker Mike Neal only performed some light jog-through work after playing through a hip injury Sunday.
Receiver Ty Montgomery (ankle) was practicing after missing the last two games with a sprained ankle. He was a limited participant last week. The full Packers’ injury report will be released later this afternoon.
