Andrew Quarless Is Out For The Season and Other Packer Injuries

Packersnews.com | Green Bay Packers | Insiders Blog " Packers tight end Quarless out for season. Obviously his loss won't mean the Green Bay Packers dream of an undefeated season and Super Bowl repeat are gone, but I feel bad for the guy. TE Andrew Quarless started out as a receiving tight end and he's become a valuable blocker on offense. He injured his knee while covering a kick on special teams and he'll need surgery.

They still have four other tight ends on the roster, so they can easily replace him. Earlier this season, I'd have guessed that this would have opened the door for rookie TE D.J. Williams. But Williams has been left inactive for the last couple games in favor of rookie TE Ryan Taylor. The offense uses three tight end formations, so one of them will get more playing time.

Mike McCarthy also told reporters that Charles Woodson suffered a concussion and he'll go through the protocol with the doctors to determine whether he can return to practice later this week. Desmond Bishop, A.J. Hawk, and Josh Sitton will all be re-evaluated on Wednesday for their various injuries. Bishop was really missed against the Giants, but he says he'll be back next Sunday to face the Raiders.
