Quarless, Zombo near return; Sherrod still uncertain

Oct. 26, 2012
 

The Packers will wait another week with tight end Andrew Quarless and linebacker Frank Zombo before making a decision on the two physically unable to perform players.

Despite having a spot open on its 53-man roster, McCarthy confirmed during his Friday news conference neither player will be activated to face the Jaguars, but both have made progress.

Quarless is working his way back from a torn ACL and MCL he suffered last season while Zombo has been sidelined with a hamstring injury since offseason activities.

"I thought their work was better," McCarthy said. "I think Frank looks very good. They’re very pleased because with the unknown of the length of his specific injury and the confidence that I think he had going into this I think he’s definitely he should feel much better about where he is today than he was two weeks ago.

"I think Andrew is really kind of the normal process of coming off a major injury to the knee. He’s having some soreness, and he needs to continue to work."

The prognosis isn't as good for the team’s third player on PUP, tackle Derek Sherrod, who has yet to practice this season and appears headed back to injured reserve after breaking his leg against Kansas City in Week 14 of last season.

“He’s not ready,” McCarthy said. “That’s really all I can tell you. I know he’s frustrated, but we all saw the injury. It was a serious injury, definitely something that we’re not going to rush back. We’ll give him every opportunity, but he’s just not ready yet.”
