Packers place Quarless on injured reserve

The Packers made several personnel moves Saturday, highlighted by the announcement that tight end Andrew Quarless was placed on season-ending injured reserve with a knee injury that has kept him off the active roster since last season.

Green Bay also placed safety Sean Richardson (back) on IR and signed running back DuJuan Harris and receiver Jeremy Ross to the active roster from the practice squad.

Quarless had been activated from the PUP list Nov. 7. He enjoyed a strong rookie year in 2010 — 21 receptions for 238 yards and one touchdown while filling in for the injured Jermichael Finley — before a torn ACL ended his 2011 season in Week 13. The 6-foot-4, 252-pounder is in his third year with Green Bay after being selected in the fifth round of the 2010 NFL draft.

Harris, a 5-foot-8, 203-pound second-year running back, played in five games for Jacksonville in 2011. Ross, a 6-foot, 215-pound rookie, spent the final 13 games of 2011 on Indianapolis’ practice squad.
