I don't know, but this makes me think his knee is what is going to put him in IR, and because of that, he went for a second opinion on his wrist. That if he was going to make it back from the knee this year, he would have held off on the wrist.

That's a good insight, but I would be surprised if that's the case if it's only an LCL injury (ligament on the outside of the knee). If it was a grade 1 or 2 sprain, then he should definitely be able to return late in the season. Perhaps it was a complete tare, but I haven't heard anything about that. I've heard it's common to also hurt the ACL with an LCL injury, but that doesn't seem to be the case here (thankfully). I also heard his knee rehabilitation had been progressing well.

It could also be a factor that the Packers can't keep holding multiple roster spots open for several weeks for players that might return at some point late in the season. That could leave them very thin on game day. Perhaps a few of the guys might have to go on IR just to have more solid game day roster. Either way, I don't really know much about the wrist. Didn't Urlacher have a similar season ending injury a few seasons ago?

If Brian Urlacher did, I would mention a guy heals quicker in his early 20's than 30's.

Checked just now. It occurred in the regular season finale and was MCL and LCL.

That he was probable?

I beleive he was referring to the wrist injury not knee.

Urlacher dislocated it in the opener against the Pack in 09' trying to tackle Grant. There was an issue with proximity to a nerve that required surgery and 12 weeks in a cast.

I think they are only similar in that it is the wrist. I think Urlachers was much more severe.

Oh wow, and MCL AND an LCL? Those are the ligaments on the inside and outside of the knee. That's very interesting/odd that one injury could injure both. It's usually one or the other. Did it say anything about what grade the sprains were? An MCL injury can be one of the most painful knee injuries. I'm still guessing it was not worse than a grade 2 since I read his rehabilitation had been progressing nicely. A grade 3 or full tare of either would almost undoubtedly land him on IR.

Well that question was answered well before Monday.

#Packers have activated TE Andrew Quarless to the 53-man roster and put rookie LB Nick Perry on injured reserve, according to an NFL source.
I think when there's enough will and aggression, there's no shortage of talent either.

At least we get Quarless back. I like him.

Would be great if he is ready to play. He was a very good blocking TE, and had all the potential of Finley, only more raw to begin with. When he got hurt, he was actually further along in progress than Finley at that some point in career do to his experience while Finley was out in the SB run.

I always thought lining finley and quarless up on opposite sides would be a coverage nightmare for defenses. both should be a mismatch.

I don't think he had Finley's athleticism, but then Finley doesn't seem to anymore either.

Quarless seemed to have really matured when he went down.
