The Packers have placed tight end Andrew Quarless on injured-reserve/designated for return after he suffered a knee injury in last Monday night’s win over the Chiefs.
The team has called the injury an MCL sprain. With the IR/return designation, Quarless can return to practice after six weeks and to game action after eight weeks.
Quarless, 26, had his only two receptions of the season vs. the Chiefs before suffering the injury, but the Packers using their lone IR/return spot on him says the team feels he’s a valuable contributor who can recover and help the team in December and beyond.
Quarless caught 53 passes, five for touchdowns, over the past two seasons.
