The Green Bay Packers put tight end Andrew Quarless and safety Sean Richardson on injured reserve and signed running back DuJuan Harris and wide receiver Jeremy Ross off their practice squad to their 53-man roster, the club said Saturday.
The decision to put Quarless on IR isn't surprising because he's been struggling with swelling in his knee since coming off the physically unable to perform list Nov. 7. Quarless is coming off a torn anterior cruciate and medial collateral ligaments he suffered almost exactly a year ago and had not appeared in a game this season.
Richardson's situation is a surprise. He had been taking part in special teams every week and didn't land on the injury report until Thursday after being a full participant in practice Wednesday. Source: Milwaukee Journal Sentinel Attached Thumbnails

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- For the Minnesota Vikings (6-5) to make the playoffs this season, they'll need to win at least one of their two upcoming games with the division-rival Packers (7-4).

Aaron Rodgers was aided by a good running game while the Vikings had nothing but Adrian Peterson. With the Packers pitching a second-half shutout, they beat the Vikings 23-14 and stayed right in the heart of the playoff race.
Not only was rookie free agent Don Barclay not a liability when he replaced T.J. Lang at right tackle, his rock-solid performance helped get Green Bay’s running game jump-started and kept quarterback Aaron Rodgers mostly upright.
GREEN BAY, Wis. Assessing the Packers' defensive performance in their 23-14 win over the Minnesota Vikings depends greatly on how a team values each statistical category. Allowing 210 rushing yards to Adrian Peterson is about as bad as it gets, but with that production being coupled with only 119 passing yards, while giving up just 14 points and forcing two key interceptions...
