Green Bay Packers tight end Andrew Quarless returned to the practice field on Monday, his first workout coming in full pads. There is a chance Quarless could be ready in time to join the Packers at Detroit on Thursday night.
Quarless remains on the injured-reserve/designated to return list, but the Packers haven’t ruled out his playing against the Lions.
Quarless could also still face discipline from the NFL after he was sentenced to one year probation and required to pay a $1,000 fine on Monday in a Florida court for firing a gun in public July 4 in Miami Beach. The Packers tight end was scheduled to go to trial Monday, but his attorney entered a no contest plea in exchange for the fine, probation and other penalties.
Quarless will be required to attend an anger management course and a weapons safety course. He also had to forfeit the gun.
