Packers TE Andrew Quarless In Final Stages Of Rehabbing Knee
Andrew Quarless thought he would have been ready for the regular-season opener, so it should come as no surprise that the Packers tight end thinks he will hit the ground running when he’s eligible to come off the physically unable to perform (PUP) list after Week 6.
Quarless, who tore the ACL and MCL and sustained other damage in his right knee last Dec. 4 against the New York Giants, believes he’s in the final stages of his rehabilitation.
“I’ve got about three to four weeks left before I can step on the field, but it’s feeling good,” Quarless said this week. “Right now, in this last month, we’re polishing things up. The strength is there, so we’re just polishing everything just to make sure everything is right. I’m doing every little thing to get back game ready.”
Quarless said he has cranked up the intensity in the last few weeks.
“I’m cutting hard, which a month ago I wouldn’t have been able to do,” he said. “I’m definitely seeing things come along.”
One of the keys to overcoming reconstructive knee surgery is regaining confidence in the knee, which is something Quarless said is a process.
“The confidence is definitely coming back,” he said. “I haven’t stepped on the field and practiced yet, so that’s a different type of confidence. But as far as cutting and running routes, that’s all stuff I’m doing. I’ve been cutting on it hard, and the last couple of weeks my confidence has been building.”
