Clock ticking on Sherrod

Nov. 16, 2012
 

The clock is ticking for Packers tackle Derek Sherrod and it doesn’t look promising.

With a little more than a week left before the Packers must make a decision to add the former first-round pick to the active roster or place him on injured reserve, Sherrod still hasn’t progressed to the point he can resume team activities.

Sherrod has spent the entire season on PUP after breaking his right leg last December against Kansas City, an injury that required emergency surgery and a rod being inserted in his leg.

The Packers designated him to return to practice during the bye week, which kicked into effect his three-week window to practice. He's taken part in a few light drills, but nothing to indicate he's ready for a return.

“I don’t want to give up on Derek,” McCarthy said. “This is his first week back. We’re taking baby steps. I think it’s obvious if you’ve had a chance to watch him work. But I will say this. Just watching him a couple weeks ago and watching him go through the individual, I think he’s made some strides. He has that last hurdle he has to get over.”
