Packers add TE Quarless to active roster, move WR Montgomery to IR

December 21, 2015

The Green Bay Packers announced the addition of tight end Andrew Quarless to the active roster on Monday. To make room for Quarless, the Packers placed wide receiver Ty Montgomery on injured reserve.

Head coach Mike McCarthy said Quarless gives the Packers another experienced veteran on offense.

Via the Packers' official Twitter account:

McCarthy also mentioned the premature end to Montgomery's rookie season, describing it as "unfortunate."

Via another Tweet from the Packers:

Quarless, 27, has been with the Packers since the 2010 season. He has played 58 career games -- including three this season, before injuring his knee and landing on injured reserve with a designation to return -- and has caught 87 passes for 923 yards and six touchdowns.

Montgomery, a third-round pick out of Stanford in this year's draft, played in the first six games and was used as a kick returner, wide receiver and even a running back before suffering a high-ankle sprain. He racked up 368 all-purpose yards on 25 total touches.
