Adam Shaheen returned to the practice field Thursday — in a limited capacity — for the first time since Saturday. The third-year tight end is fighting a sore back.

Shaheen’s stretched with the team and did individual work, but took off his pads and helmet when it was time for team drills. That was the plan, coach Matt Nagy said, reiterating that the team will be cautious with the injury.

Shaheen played only six games — and was limited during them — after hurting his right foot and ankle last preseason against the Broncos.

“He was really arrow-up going into last year’s preseason and then he had that bad injury,” Nagy said. “And now here we are and he hasn’t been out here a whole lot, so we’ve got to get him back on track.”
