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