Abbrederis Back, Montgomery Still Out

The Packers wide receivers could help a stangnant offense. 

Jared Abbrederis was back at practice on Sunday. Ty Montgomery was not. 

Montogomery is dealing with a high ankle sprain, which tend to take months to return from. So it's no surprise that the rookie wide receiver is still not participating. 

In other injury news, Andrew Quarless is still not cleared to practice, which makes one wonder if we will see him on the field again this year. Quarless suffered a knee injury against the Chiefs back in September and has finished his eight-week requirement for the "IR Designated To Return" designation, but he still has not been activated by the Packers. McCarthy did say "maybe this week" when asked about the tight end on Sunday. 

UPDATE: McCarthy indicated during his Monday press conference that Quarless will start practicing today.

Abby back...great news...Monty not...really frustrating news. It is apparent that Monty had a real affect on the defenses that play against us. He has the Cobb like affect...don't know where he is going to line up and makes defenses honor his where abouts...Monty, Cobb, and Abby will do wonders for Rodgers.

Bench Devante...seen enough of him for a life time. He had one good game against New England last year and since then has been a journeyman receiver at best.

I don't know how many times he has made Rodgers look bad by totally blowing routes and not picking up on hot reads.

Yes, I think unfortunately the wrong WR is getting healthy... But he may still be an upgrade over Adams. I mean who isn't?
as for Quarless, I am not sure whether he could help a lot, but he would make the TE position a little more dynamic. Going with him and Perillo would at least give 2 viable TEs who can catch a ball and outrun a LB...
Having said all that, I still think R. Rodgers could be valuable if used properly.

Nowhere outside of goal line situations?

Also in 3rd & short situations. I don't think running sideways with RBs or throwing deep for WRs will do the trick here, but R. Rodgers is sure handed and can be used for in 3rd & 1 or 2 situations.

As what? He lacks any speed and quickness, I think they picked him to block more than be a tight end so they are happy with him if he is blocking. If not, then this is another draft busts for Ted T.

Wondering where myself. End zone / Goal line only. He is too lead footed to play anywhere else, if at all.

This Montgomery stuff is weird. Let me say that Abby is one concussion from a career ender so his time is limited. He suffered way too many in college, and how many already in the pro's?

Montgomery is a mystery they are trying to cover up. A broken ankle heels in four weeks, sprains, one to three weeks, ligaments, a little longer and if he tore a ligament that's surgery and he didn't have surgery so its got to be something else.

Anyways, his body is too frail for this game. So he comes back for what one game then pow. Another rotten pick for Ted the genius.

I played sports at the University of Wisconsin back in the 1970's. Had a high ankle sprain. In my case it took me a year to heal.

Why? When you do that, your ankle is mush. Any torque applied gets it started all over again. It is extremely painful and does not come back in some cases.

So, in Mr. Montgomery's case, he could be back in a week or two, but could reinjure it very easily. That is the problem.

i don't think they told us he had a high ankle sprain at 1st. I was hoping it wasn't. I've seen a lot of players miss long periods of a season with it.

Ernesto,

Your time tables sound like you are taking them from the local doctor's office- "You have a sprained ankle, take it easy for one to three weeks, then you're good to go"- when you have an average life and your day to day activities are sitting at a desk, or even working a trades job- where, yes, you are working hard, but you certainly aren't sprinting, dashing, and colliding with world-class athletes while wearing 30 lbs of pads and cleats.

High Ankle Sprains are notoriously difficult for pro athletes to overcome, and are often aggravated is rushed.

He's not going out to get groceries on that thing- he's exerting forces on it and exposing it to impacts repeatedly during the course of 60 minutes of regulation that most people never inflict on their bodies in a given year.

One bad ankle injury is no reason to believe this kid is too frail for the game. Now, Abberderris? Yeah, he has a serious injury history, and I agree about him being one more concussion away from a end to his young career.

Montgomery?
A high ankle sprain. Hey Mike I was in a cast for 10 weeks with one. On several other occasions, I have a penchant for ankle sprains of all kinds, it was 4 weeks to heal, 3 week, who knows?

Bad news for Mr Montgomery. Read the medical brochures for yourself and read, high occurance rates and no such thing as 100% recovery. Beleive it!

Maybe the crowd should start a "we want Janis chant".
