|Packers cornerback Quinten Rollins Leonard Fournette Jersey , who tore his right Achilles in an October game against the Vikings, is back practicing on a limited basis.
鈥淚t feels good,鈥?Rollins said, via Michael Cohen of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. 鈥淚 didn鈥檛 have no setbacks since I started rehabbing. I鈥檓 day by day still with it, and every day is different. I鈥檓 just trying to take it one day at a time.鈥?/p>
Rollins, 25, faces a tough battle to make the roster. The Packers drafted cornerbacks with their first two choices Jadeveon Clowney Jersey , taking Louisville’s Jaire Alexander in the first round and Iowa’s Josh Jackson in the second after trading Damarious Randall to the Browns earlier this year.
鈥淭hat鈥檚 just the nature of the business,鈥?Rollins said. 鈥淚t鈥檚 part of football. You鈥檙e always trying to find the next person up. I understand the business. You can鈥檛 get your feelings tied up in that.鈥?/p>
Alexander, Jackson and Kevin King, a second-round pick in 2017, are locks to make the roster. The Packers brought in veteran Tramon Williams and re-signed Davon House. Lenzy Pipkins, Josh Hawkins, Demetri Goodson Kevin Huber Jersey , Donatello Brown and Herb Waters also are competing for jobs.
Cohen asked Rollins about the prospect of moving to safety, but Rollins rejected the idea. New General Manager Brian Gutekunst also has faith in Rollins’ ability to play cornerback, if Rollins can stay healthy.
Rollins has never played a full 16-game schedule, seeing action in 33 games in his first three seasons.
鈥淚t was unfortunate the injury he had, and you鈥檙e always waiting to see guys come back and where they鈥檙e at from those kinds of injuries,” Gutekunst said. “He鈥檚 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鈥檙e looking forward to getting him back.鈥?/p> San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Marquise Goodwin has won the 2018 George Halas Award from the Professional Football Writers of America.
The Halas Award is given to a NFL player Jay Novacek Jersey , coach or staff member who overcomes the most adversity to succeed. Goodwin had a career year on the field while dealing with family tragedies during the 2017 season.
Goodwin was signed as an unrestricted free agent last year. His wife, Morgan, lost a premature baby boy due to complications during pregnancy on Nov. 12. Hours later, he caught an 83-yard touchdown pass, the longest by a 49ers player since 2014. He blew a kiss to the sky before crossing the goal line, and dropped to his knees in the end zone in prayer, overcome with emotion.
Goodwin also went through the loss of his biological father in December Tyler Ervin Jersey , then was carted off the field after being injured in the season finale. He finished with 56 receptions for 962 yards and two touchdowns and was third in the NFL in reception average at 17.2 yards.
He is the 50th Halas Award winner.
Other 2018 nominees were Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen, Eagles quarterback Nick Foles, Giants tackle Nate Solder and Vikings coach Mike Zimmer.
