The Green Bay Packers rookie linebacker Nick Perry's wrist injury apparently is more serious than initial expectations. The rookie out of USC was placed on injured reserve yesterday, ending his first year in the NFL. Perry played in six games with five starts this season and posted 29 tackles (18 solo) and two sacks.
The move opened up a roster spot for tight end Andrew Quarless. He moved from the reserve/physically unable to perform list to the active roster Wednesday. Quarless, a 6-foot-4, 252-pound third-year player out of Penn State, appeared in 23 games with five starts for Green Bay in 2010-11.
The transactions were announced by Executive Vice President, General Manager and Director of Football Operations Ted Thompson.
