There’s Been a Derek Sherrod Sighting!

Derek Sherrod

Remember Derek Sherrod? Probably not, since he hasn’t been on a football field in over a year.

The Green Bay Packers chose Sherrod in the first round in 2011. The tackle broke his leg at the end of that season and hasn’t played since. Well, he just might play this year, goddamit!

Sherrod returned to practice on Wednesday after spending the first six weeks of the season on the physically unable to perform list. He’s the first member of that group to return to practice, as well.

Safety Sean Richardson, defensive lineman Jerel Worthy and guard J.C. Tretter are also on the PUP.

Now the Packers have a three-week window to determine what do with Sherrod — add him to the active roster, put him on injured reserve or cut him.

The first option is most likely, unless Sherrod just forgot how to play football. The Packers just put backup offensive lineman Greg Van Roten on injured reserve, so they can use the depth Sherrod would provide. And, if Don Barclay keeps giving up two sacks per game, as he did on Sunday, well then maybe the Packers can actually make some use of Sherrod.

Of course, that also raises the roster conundrum. The Packers will have to make a corresponding move — releasing someone or moving them to injured reserve — when they activate Sherrod.

For now, we’d just like to see if we can finally get something out of the former first-round pick.

    Derek Sherrods aren’t real, that’s clearly some guy in a Derek Sherrod suit. C’mon, you can see the guy’s fucking wrist watch. Save this shit for Coast 2 Coast AM, Monty.

    As I recall, Derek Sherrod hasn’t really shown much in the little time he has had the opportunity to before the injury. So I’m not getting too excited. Let’s hope he’s as good as we thought he was when we drafted him in the first round.

    Doubt that Worthy will be back this year. I think Boyd could give you more than Worthy, at least in this season.

    Sounds like Tretter will go IR.

    Sounds like Richardson will be gone.

    If no more injuries, who would get cut if Sherrod comes back?

    McMillian?
    Quarless?

    Hill?
    Nixon?
    Stoneburner?
    White?

      I’d say Kuhn, but that fuck would get his entire salary guaranteed for doing nothing…
      …which is so dramatically different than being on the roster:

      —–Rushing
      2 for 5 yds

      —–Passing
      2 for 9 yds

      (through five games)

      But he’s soooooooo good on special teams !!!

    If Starks comes back, you can cut Hill.

    If Bush comes back, you can cut McMillian.

    Or you could make Hyde your back up safety and cut McMillian now.

    I’m not thinking Nixon is too comfortable with his rsoter spot, with Hayward getting ready and Sherrod working out.

    Dude suffered a gruesome injury that very easily could’ve been a career ender, he’s had a setback, or two, but by most accounts he’s been committed to getting back on the field and earning his place on this team. I don’t get the impression that he, like some, is happy to just get a paycheck, he wants to contribute. Here’s hoping he’s able to.

    Curious to see if the NFL will investigate the Charles Johnson injury debacle. Maybe it will shed some light on our top notch medical personnel. That is of course if they missed the torn ACL in the MRI. Who knows, maybe he injured it walking his dog or some shit.

    Apparently after Sherrod came back the first time his bone started shredding like old tree bark. Not fucking good. Had another surgery and now he can put all the weight on it as it was before he broke it.

    Hope he works out man, we could use him.

    Also im a GO wiht Iltarions idea…Get er done!
