Updating an earlier item, Packers TE Andrew Quarless has yet to report to training camp.

"Andrew Quarless is dealing with an extremely difficult family situation right now," coach Mike McCarthy said Thursday. "He will be gone as long as he has to be." McCarthy's words suggest Quarless' issue isn't related to his July 4 gun arrest. It's unclear when the Packers' in-line tight end will report.

Packers TE Andrew Quarless reported to training camp on time following his early-July arrest for allegedly firing a gun twice in Miami.

Coach Mike McCarthy had a "long conversation" with Quarless, and admitted both sides were "disappointed" in Quarless' actions. Still, the Packers appear to have no intention of cutting Quarless, who remains on track to start at in-line tight end while Richard Rodgers operates as the lightly-used flex player.

The Packers have no plans to release TE Andrew Quarless following his July 4 arrest.

Quarless allegedly fired a gun into the air twice during an early-Saturday morning altercation. He tried to flee and hide the weapon, but was arrested on a first-degree misdemeanor. The gun was registered to Quarless. The legal process will play itself out before the NFL steps in regarding a possible suspension.

Packers TE Andrew Quarless was arrested in Miami Saturday morning after allegedly firing a gun twice during an altercation.

Quarless tried to flee the scene and hide the gun in a plant, but he was arrested and charged with discharging a firearm in public, a first-degree misdemeanor with penalties of up to one year in jail in Florida. No matter what happens in the legal system, Quarless is likely to face a significant suspension from the NFL. Nothing more than a mediocre talent, Quarless' days with the Packers could be finished.

Aaron Rodgers singled out TE Andrew Quarless as someone standing out in offseason workouts.

Quarless had just 29 catches, 323 yards and three touchdowns last year. He's also been in the league four years already and will be sharing time with Richard Rogers. So forgive us if we take this Rodgers quote with a grain of salt: "Andrew Quarless has had a great offseason. I think he’s really, something clicked in for him at the end of last year and he’s been taking the jump. "

Andrew Quarless will compete with Richard Rodgers for the starting tight end job again this year.

It's not really a position battle worth tracking closely because the two will rotate and Green Bay's scheme doesn't rely heavily on the tight end. Last year, the duo combined for just 49 catches and 548 yards, with Quarless at 29-323-3.

Andrew Quarless was held without a catch in the NFC Championship Game.

Quarless' lone target was a critical fourth-quarter pass where he couldn't make a difficult catch. Quarless "led" the Packers' tight end corps with a 29/323/3 line this season, but ceded lots of work to third-round rookie Richard Rodgers. Rodgers made a bigger impact down the stretch, and could move past Quarless in 2015. Quarless is a nonentity in dynasty leagues.
Jan 18 - 7:33 PM

Andrew Quarless secured 4-of-4 targets for 31 yards and a touchdown in the Packers' Divisional Round win over the Cowboys.

Quarless converted his first target for a four-yard touchdown, putting Green Bay ahead 7-0 in the first quarter. Quarless added a 12-yard gain on an improvised checkdown early in the fourth. Quarless primarily blocks and catches checkdowns in the Packers' passing offense. He may have to play a bigger role than usual when Green Bay treks to Seattle for the NFC Championship Game.
Jan 11 - 4:44 PM

Andrew Quarless was held without a catch on one target in Green Bay's Week 17 win over the Lions.

Quarless heads into the playoffs the owner of a 29/323/3 line. If he makes an impact in the Divisional Round, it will be hard to see coming.

Andrew Quarless secured 1-of-4 targets for seven yards in the Packers' Week 15 loss to the Bills.

Quarles is a minor part of Green Bay's passing game. He's a low-end TE2.
Sun, Dec 14, 2014 04:38:00 PM

Andrew Quarless caught three passes for 52 yards in the Packers' Week 14 win over the Falcons.

He was targeted four times. The yards were a season-high for Quarless, which tells us all we need to know. He isn't, and never was, worth fantasy consideration.
Tue, Dec 9, 2014 01:12:00 AM

Andrew Quarless caught two passes for 11 yards with a touchdown in Sunday's Week 6 win at Miami.

With just seven seconds left and the Packers trailing 24-20, they split Quarless out wide -- something they rarely do. He ended up 1-on-1 with Phillip Wheeler and won the battle, winning the game for the Packers. Quarless is still safe to ignore in fantasy lineups.
Sun, Oct 12, 2014 05:04:00 PM

Andrew Quarless had two catches for 19 yards in Week 5 against the Vikings.

Quarless played the majority of snaps in base sets, getting both of his receptions on check downs. He was able to secure his two targets after being held without a catch last week. As the in-line blocking complement to Richard Rodgers, Quarless can continue to be avoided in fantasy leagues.
Fri, Oct 3, 2014 12:44:00 AM

Andrew Quarless had zero catches on zero targets in Sunday's Week 4 win at Chicago.

Confirming that his Week 3 mini-breakout was a fluke, Quarless airballed despite playing on 44-of-52 snaps. He's an in-line blocking complement to the guy the Packers want to be their pass-catching tight end, Richard Rodgers.
