Quinten Rollins in for a battle to make Packers’ roster at cornerback

Packers cornerback Quinten Rollins, who tore his right Achilles in an October game against the Vikings, is back practicing on a limited basis.

“It feels good,” Rollins said, via Michael Cohen of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. “I didn’t have no setbacks since I started rehabbing. I’m day by day Cheap Blank Hockey Jerseys still with it, and every day is different. I’m just trying to take it one day at a time.”

Rollins has never played a full 16-game schedule, seeing action in 33 games in his first three seasons.

“It was unfortunate the injury he had, and you’re always waiting to see guys come back and where they’re at from those kinds of injuries,” Gutekunst said. “He’s another guy that needs to play. Obviously playing one season of college football he had some really good moments early before he got hurt the last couple years, but he needs to play. He needs experience. He needs to grow. We’re looking forward to getting him back.”

McClellin told Mike Reiss of ESPN.com that he’s content with coaching high school football in Idaho, but is still willing to listen to offers.

“I’m still staying ready, still working out,” he said. “I’ve learned to never say never, there’s always a chance that I could still play again, but for now all my focus is on coaching high school.”

McClellin, 28, spent last year on injured reserve. He attempted to come back during a two-week window of practice, but said the lingering effects of the concussion returned.

“It’s difficult whenever you get an injury that holds you out, when you kind of feel like you’re good and then find out you’re not. It’s always tough,” he said. “I think it was just over time, it wasn’t just one thing. I’ve had five documented concussions, and probably more than that which aren’t documented. It was just residual effects that I couldn’t overcome, which is unfortunate. But sometimes that’s the way it plays out and you just have to deal with it. . . .
