The Packers could have cornerback Sam Shields back in the lineup on Saturday in Arizona.
Shields has been out since suffering a concussion in Week 14, but was able to work in practice all three days this week in hopes of getting on the field against the Cardinals. The team hasn’t announced if he has been fully cleared through the concussion protocol, but Shields has been listed as questionable for the game rather than ruled out so he’s at least close to making it through.
The news is more certain on left tackle David Bakhtiari. He’s been listed as probable for the game, which has him on track to play for the first time since Week 15. Bakhtiari’s absence forced the Packers to start Don Barclay in Week 16 against the Cardinals and his inability to slow the Cardinals pass rushers played a big role in a 38-8 Cardinals win.
