GREEN BAY, WI (LEARFIELD-WSAU)Andrew Quarless is back in the running for the Green Bay Packers' Number-One tight end. That's after Brandon Bostick suffered a lower leg injury in Saturday's Packer exhibition win at Saint Louis.
Coach Mike McCarthy would not say if the injury had anything to do with a broken foot Bostick suffered last year. The coach did say that surgery won't be necessary, and Bostick will be out for a couple of weeks. Bostick was in the running to replace Jermichael Finley as Green Bay's top tight end.
The injury gives Quarless a chance to move up. Quarless caught four passes for 58 yards against the Rams. He was also called for offensive pass interference for pushing off on a defender on what could have been a touchdown.
The Packers returned to practice yesterday after their first pre-season win -- and they'll work out again today.
