The Packers have tweaked their roster heading into the regular season's home stretch, sigining QB Graham Harrell to the active roster from the practice squad and placing TE Andrew Quarless on injured reserve. The team also announced that it had signed OG Jake Vermiglio to the practice squad.

Harrell, a 6-2, 215-pound signalcaller out of Texas Tech, originally signed with the club in May 2010, spending the first 13 games of the '10 season on the Packers' practice squad before being signed to the 53-man roster for the final three regular-season contests and the postseason.

Quarless suffered a season-ending knee injury this past Sunday vs. Giants. He played in 10 games with two starts this season, posting three receptions for 36 yards (12.0 avg.) and two tackles on special teams.
 
Vermiglio, a 6-5, 329-pound rookie out of North Carolina State, signed with the Cardinals as an undrafted free agent on July 30 and was released by the team on Aug. 24. He played in 45 games with 32 starts for the Wolfpack, earning All-ACC honorable mention recognition as a senior.
