Quinten Rollins limited at Packers practice after dislocating finger

Packers cornerback Quinten Rollins hasn’t been able to put his best foot forward in an attempt to win playing time during OTAs this offseason and his finger is to blame.

Rollins dislocated his finger when he made a play on the ball during the team’s first OTA session. Rollins emerged from that play with bone sticking through the skin on his right hand and required medical attention that kept him from practicing at all until Monday.

“Caught a helmet,” Rollins said, via the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. “I don’t know. It happened so fast. Just a reaction thing. I looked down at my hand, and I knew it was dislocated. But then I didn’t see the skin was broken until I got to the sideline. Bone ended up coming through the skin. So I had to stitch it up. I got the stitches out on Friday. So just making a slow progress, trying to get back.”

Rollins did footwork drills in his return to the practice field and isn’t expected to do much more until the team gets to training camp this summer. At that point, the 2015 second-rounder will resume his push for playing time after grading out well in pass coverage during his rookie season.

  1. Rollins came in as a rookie and played very well. With this being his second camp and with a full season under his belt, I’m not worried about him missing time now.

    Packers ranked 6th in Passing Defense last year. I see them working their way into the top 3 this year. Easily one of the most talented DB groups in the league, and that is with 2 guys in their second seasons (Thanks Ted).

  2. Ya, as a late second round pick, he graded out better than the #11 overall pick which just happened to be a DB also, just not a very good one.

  3. Q – with one one year of College football – is already better than any CB on the Vikings. That includes #11 overall Waynes who can’t get on the field, 38 year old Newman and holding extraordinaire Rhodes.

  4. Did anyone else think the strap on his glove (in the picture) was his finger?

  5. This guy looked pretty good last year as a rookie.

    Green Bay hit in a big way on their 1st and 2nd round picks last year. They’re set at corner for years to come.

  6. Geez, in the last two NFC playoff losses for the packers they had their fingers firmly wrapped around their necks in a choking fashion, now they are getting broken in practice. What’s next, Rodgers pulls a groin muscle pulling off his spanks after the game??

  7. When I learned he led his college basketball league in steals, I knew he had potential. Lateral movement and foot speed. He was great this past year. Great pick by Ted….again.

  8. Dislocated fingers are no big deal. Unless they break off. And I’ve seen that happen. But we can handle that because the people here in Wisconsin really are better. In one way in particular. I should know. They are like seasoned vets in situations like this. So don’t worry, Rollie will recover and we’ll look back at this as just an OTA appetizer to the regular seasoned. Go Pack!

  10. Fans of the biggest choke team in the history of the NFL, owners of the all-time record for post-season futility, not to mention debacles like; “Never-Miss” Anderson, Giants 41-0, Favre, Walsh,……….etc., etc…..all throwing shade at the team with the most championships.

    You deserve the privilege of doing so, why?

    ……….easy to say when you don’t have any. Why don’t you write to Goodell and plead your case? I mean, if nobody cares, nobody, then it should be an easy sell for you.

    Good luck with that.

  12. The winning play was a drop-kick in the snow, right down the middle. Not even close to Wide Left.

    Packers 3, Drunken Sailors 0.

    Good times.

  13. every viking fan’s zinger here starts off with a laugh then dwindles into a meek whimper as reality sets in…no championships. forever alone. :'(
