GREEN BAY, Wis. -- The Packers have placed tight end Andrew Quarless on injured reserve/designated to return with a sprained left knee.

Quarless would miss a minimum of eight weeks, meaning he would be eligible to return in Week 12 on Thanksgiving against the Chicago Bears. He can start practicing with the team in six weeks.

Quarless got hurt during the Packers' win on Monday night against Kansas City.
