Three weeks ago today, the Packers put tight end Andrew Quarless on the practice field for the first time after spending the first six weeks of the season on the physically unable to perform list.
Now, they have to make a decision on what to do with Quarless by the end of today.
The rules of PUP allow a player to practice for three weeks (without counting on the 53-man roster) beginning after Week 6 of the regular season. At the end of that three-week window, the player must be added to the roster, released or placed on injured reserve.
Quarless blew out his knee 11 months ago against the New York Giants.
If the Packers have already made their decision, Quarless' agent, Peter Schaffer, isn't saying.
All Schaffer would say when reached this morning was that he supported whatever decision general manager Ted Thompson, coach Mike McCarthy and vice president of football administration Russ Ball make.
