The bye week is underway in Green Bay, and while the coaches might be at 1265 Lombardi Ave. today, most of the players have left town. The exception might be some injured players who are staying for rehab.
While there won’t be much news coming out of Green Bay for the next several days, the Packers must make a decision on Wednesday on tight end Andrew Quarless who is on the PUP list but whose three-week window of practice time comes to a close.
The Packers have three options. They can activate Quarless and place him on the 53-man roster, they can place him on injured reserve and end his season or they can release him.
It doesn’t seem likely that the Packers would release him. So basically, they’re down to the two other options.
The most likely scenario would seem that they would activate Quarless to their 53-man roster, but that would require them making room for him.
One way for them to do so would be to place rookie outside linebacker Nick Perry on injured reserve as has been speculated recently. Perry reportedly had wrist surgery.
