David Bakhtiari (probable) on pace to return to Aaron Rodgers' O-line

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Coach Mike McCarthy must have seen enough from left tackle David Bakhtiari in practice Wednesday and Thursday to feel good about his chances for Saturday's game at Arizona.

Even though Bakhtiari did not practice Friday, the Green Bay Packers listed him as probable for the NFC divisional playoff game against the Cardinals. He was a limited participant in the first two practices of the week.

Bakhtiari is now on track to play for the first time since Week 15, when he sprained his left ankle. Without Bakhtiari in Week 16 against the Cardinals, Aaron Rodgers was sacked eight times -- including four allowed by replacement left tackle Don Barclay -- in the Packers' 38-8 loss. Since then, the Packers have tried two other players, guard Josh Sitton and center JC Tretter, at left tackle.

There was less definitive news on cornerback Sam Shields. He was listed as questionable despite practicing on a limited basis all week. Shields has not played since his head hit the turf Dec. 13 against the Dallas Cowboys.

Cornerback Quinten Rollins (quadriceps) also was listed as questionable.

In a sign the Packers are concerned about their cornerback depth, they promoted rookie Robertson Daniel from the practice squad Friday and placed tight end Andrew Quarless (knee) on injured reserve. Daniel had been on the practice squad since Sept. 7.

As expected, receiver Davante Adams (knee) was ruled out. That leaves the Packers with four available receivers (Randall Cobb, James Jones, Jared Abbrederis and Jeff Janis) and three tight ends (Richard Rodgers, Justin Perillo and Kennard Backman).
