Head Coach Mike McCarthy gave positive updates on T Derek Sherrod and S Sean Richardson on Thursday.
Both players are on the physically unable to perform (PUP) list. Sherrod began practicing last week and can practice through next week before the Packers have to make a roster decision on him. McCarthy made it sound as though there’s a good chance Sherrod could be put on the active roster.
“I think it’s promising,” McCarthy said. “It’s definitely much better than it was when the season started. I think he clearly has moved past just the mobility part of it where you originally had some concerns. He needs the padded work, the time you usually get in training camp. He’s doing some extra drill work and things like that, and we’ll try to get him acclimated as best as possible.”
Richardson, who is trying to come back from neck fusion surgery, hasn’t started practicing yet but the latest medical update was encouraging.
“We got great news on him this week,” McCarthy said. “I’m happy for Sean after what he’s been through. He looks great, so we’ll see what happens.”
McCarthy also said that TE Jermichael Finley was going to be released from the hospital on Thursday.
