Packers Activate Andrew Quarless From IR-DTR

Occupying the Packers’ IR-DTR slot since Sept. 30, Andrew Quarless could help the team down the stretch after being activated today.

Quarless will take Ty Montgomery‘s roster spot, with the Packers placed the wideout on season-ending injured reserve, Rob Demovsky of reports (on Twitter).

A sixth-year tight end, Quarless started 21 games for Green Bay during the 2013-14 campaigns but saw his stock plummet after an offseason arrest. The 27-year-old caught two passes for 14 yards in the three games he played in September.

Quarless will serve as a complementary option to improving tight end Richard Rodgers, whose 50-catch, 449-yard, seven-touchdown receiving line bests Quarless’ career high.

Montgomery hasn’t played since Week 6 after suffering a high-ankle sprain that’s lingered since. The 22-year-old receiver caught 15 passes for 136 yards and two touchdowns for the receiver-depleted Packers this season.
