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.
