Sam Shields and Johnny Jolly Return to Practice Tuesday

Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports

The two formerly absent Packers are back at practice today.

The two remaining Green Bay Packers who had been missing practice at the team's voluntary OTAs are both back at practice today. Cornerback Sam Shields has returned, according to the Press-Gazette's Wes Hodkiewicz:

This is a good sign. As we mentioned last week, skipping OTAs didn't really mean much in the grand scheme of things, at least not as far as Shields' contract situation was concerned. With his signing the tender and now being under contract, he can feel comfortable practicing normally and has not missed any mandatory practices.

Also back in the fold is defensive lineman Johnny Jolly, who finally has made his long-awaited return to the team.

We don't have information yet on what exactly the issue was that kept Jolly out of OTAs last week after he expected to return for last Tuesday's practice, but we expect that Mike McCarthy will explain somewhat in his press conference this afternoon.

Keep it locked on APC this afternoon for our minicamp notebook and highlights from McCarthy's presser.
