Andrew Quarless could miss all of 2012

Andrew Quarless AP

Packers reserve tight end Andrew Quarless suffered a season-ending knee injury last week that could potentially threaten next season.

Bob McGinn of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel writes that the damage was so severe that it’s very possible Quarless will miss all of 2012.

A fifth-round pick in 2010, Quarless had 21 catches last year but his role as a receiver was diminished with Jermichael Finley back this year. He’s waiting for swelling to go down before undergoing reconstructive knee surgery.

    The Packers have a plethora of tight ends so they won’t be hurting so much, but I feek sorry for Quarless. Hope he recovers fully to continuen his promising career.

    Even as a Viking fan, this is sad! Here’s to a speedy recovery!

    Kid has come a long way both on and off the field. This is why clipping is supposed to be illegal.

    To bad, and if he misses 2012 you might as well consider it career ending. Talk about having your future ripped away from you, ugh.

    Wrong beedubyatoo..this hurts big time. Doesn’t get the hype but a very key member of the offense/st’s.

    It also puts leverage back to Jermichael for a fat contract because Crabtree and Williams probably are not 2012 starting material but AQ was.

    It amazes me that there was no flag on the play, nor no fine later.

    I agree with 1265…this helps YOTTO’s bargaining power, although, Rodgers sure seems to like Ryan Taylor a bunch.

    Injuries seems to only be opportunities for the Pack these days. Here’s hoping DJ or Ryan emerges in his absence. Crabby is just a blocker.

    At this point I don’t know how much leverage Finley has. I would let him walk. This year he has dropped an awful lot of passes and is not athletic as he was last year. Not to mention does he really want to go play somewhere else without a QB like Rodgers. Quarless is a loss but replaceable.

    Another one of Triplettes gaffs. That was a fair catch signal by the Giant player (forgot who it was now) so packer players started to let up.
