Green Bay Packers tight end Andrew Quarless could have returned against the Chicago Bears. That was the first game he was eligible to play in after doing time his time on short-term injured reserve with a sprained knee.
He did not and God’s Gifts hasn’t been able to practice yet either. That could change this week, according to coach Mike McCarthy.
McCarthy on TE Andrew Quarless: He won't practice today, but maybe this week.

As soon as Quarless returns to practice, that starts the clock for the Packers. They have 21 days to determine what to do with him — either add him to the active roster (and release someone else), put him on season-ending injured reserve or release him.
This is a fairly interesting situation.
For one, the Packers’ starting tight end, Richard Rodgers, shouldn’t be starting for the Suring High School JV. Is Quarless going to come in and be the Packers’ savior? There’s no chance of that.
Even when healthy, God’s Gifts wasn’t anything more than a mediocre player. Mediocre is better than DickRodge, though.
Then there’s that pesky NFL suspension issue.
Gifts was caught waving a gun around back in July and the league doesn’t exactly look kindly on that sort of thing. Yet, they’ve done nothing about it up to this point. It’s not really a question of if, though. It’s a question of when Quarless gets suspended and for how long.
The first thing he needs to do is get back on the field. Then we can watch it all play out with great excitement.
I’m pumped for Quarless to return! Wait, what the hell has this season done to me?
It’s a sad state of affairs when we anticipate Quarless coming back…to save the day.
Who fucking cares.
Keep “Gift” away from Madden 2015….
Fucks sakes, I can’t believe I am saying this, but I think God’s Gift SHOULD improve the packers offense.
Boy, its a goood thing we didn’t pick up Jermaine Gresham in the offseason.
Jermaine Gresham, Vernon Davis, Owen Daniels (who wanted to play here), Scott Chandler, Charles Clay, the list goes on and on. Including many “missed” opportunities in recent drafts… Most teams have two solid TE options, not 1.
Did the great Ted Thompson even leave us with one???
No, and he never will . . . The “frugal GM” . . . what an douchebag.
The pack pay`s 8-10 players top money, the rest make first time money. You get 8-10 good players and a bunch of nobody`s around them. And Green Bay Packers Inc. makes a boat load of money every year, but were all back next year for some more.
