GREEN BAY – Andrew Quarless is back, and Nick Perry’s rookie season is over.
The Green Bay Packers activated Quarless, a third-year tight end, from the physically unable to perform list on Wednesday, adding him to the 53-man roster after he began practicing three weeks ago.
To make room for Quarless on the roster, the team placed Perry on season-ending injured reserve after he underwent left wrist surgery on Tuesday. The Green Bay Press-Gazette reported the surgery was done at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn., and that the wrist is not expected to be a long-term issue for Perry.
Perry ended his rookie season having played 211 snaps in six games, registering two sacks, eight quarterback hits and 29 total tackles.
With Quarless, who blew out his knee last Dec. 4 against the New York Giants at MetLife Stadium, back on the roster, the Packers are now carrying five tight ends, just as they did for most of last season until Quarless’ injury.
