There had been rumors swirling. On Monday, Green Bay Packers tight end Andrew Quarless confirmed it.
His and his girlfriend’s daughter died at birth, last week.
“This past Wednesday, July 29, I lost my daughter on delivery,” Quarless said. “Probably the saddest day of my life.”
Quarless missed the first two days of training camp. He suited up on Saturday for the first time, but didn’t practice.
Coach Mike McCarthy alluded to the fact that Quarless’ mind wasn’t on football. Now we understand why.
Obviously, we give Quarless (and pretty much everybody else) a lot of shit around here, but our condolences are with him at this time.
Hopefully, he will be able to rebound from this tragedy.
