The Green Bay Packers activated TE Andrew Quarless from reserve/physically unable to perform and placed LB Nick Perry (wrist) on injured reserve. The transactions were announced Wednesday by Executive Vice President, General Manager and Director of Football Operations Ted Thompson.
According to the Green Bay Press Gazette’s Rob Demovsky, Perry’s surgery on Tuesday, which was first reported by TMJ4′s Lance Allen, was to repair a ligament injury in the rookie linebacker’s left wrist.
The Packers will move forward with Erik Walden, rookie Dezmon Moses and the recently activated Frank Zombo at outside linebacker. The team is also dealing with the possibility of being without Clay Matthews for a game or two after Matthews suffered a hamstring injury against the Arizona Cardinals last Sunday.
As for Quarless, it will be interesting to see what he is able to contribute. The third year tight end out of Penn State was having a good year in 2011 and looked to be one of the team’s most improved players before going on injured reserve after suffering a brutal knee injury in last year’s regular season game against the New York Giants.
