Quarless (knee) will be placed on injured reserve by the Packers, the ESPN reports.
Quarless posted on Instagram on Thursday that his "season has come to an end not by my choice," and he's expected to be placed on injured reserve at some point Friday. Quarless reportedly had fluid drained from his knee recently, an issue that stems back to an early-season injury that landed him on the injured reserve/designated to return list after Week 3. The sixth-year tight end was a limited participant in practice both Wednesday and Thursday, but the Packers were apparently not convinced about his health and will likely hand his roster spot to another receiver or tight end for the team's NFC divisional round game against the Cardinals on Saturday. Quarless will enter free agency in the offseason, and with Richard Rodgers now taking over the primary tight end role for the Packers, it's certainly possible Quarless won't be wearing green and gold next season.
