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. Theyre 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 hes 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. Hes having some soreness, and he needs to continue to work."

The prognosis isn't as good for the teams 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.

Hes not ready, McCarthy said. Thats really all I can tell you. I know hes frustrated, but we all saw the injury. It was a serious injury, definitely something that were not going to rush back. Well give him every opportunity, but hes just not ready yet.
