Positive reports on Sherrod, Richardson

Posted by Mike Spofford on October 24, 2013 – 4:32 pm

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.

    I would wager that Finley will go to IR and that will make room for Sherrod to convert to the active roster without any other major changes needed. The developing TEs in the pipeline will remain and the O-line will remain stable to give Sherrod time to acclimate.

    I almost forgot about Richardson… I wonder how he will fit in?? Cut Bush? Sounds good to me…

    Good news coming for Packer players returning from injury. So many hamstrings. I’m wondering if the players are building up their quad so much the hamstrings get over-powered. Depending on the imbalance between the two, quad and hanstrings, stretching won’t be enough.

    What about Casey Hayward???

    I told you all that Brett Favre would be coming back this year. It looks like the Bears are looking to sign Favre until Cutler gets back. Favre gets to play Green Bay one more time.

    Scott, What is it with “Cut Bush” they guy is a stud on ST THAT is why he is on the team. Have you seen the ST play the last couple of games without Bush is the line up? You’re probably a Hawk hater too…

    Cut Bush? You gotta be kidding! With special teams struggling to adapt to the ever changing lineup you want to dump your best special teams player. Bush stays, at least for this season.

    It’s Newhouse that can go, not Bush.

    I think they’d waive another of the WRs recently signed, not a Tackle or CB. Either Myles White or Chris Harper would go, try to get through waivers and sign to practice squad.

    Glad to hear Jermichael Finley was released from the hospital.

    Favre isn’t coming back. I don’t know what you’ve been smoking but put down the pipe.

    Favre is definitely gonna give her a go. Visit his webpage, http/ for all the details.

    What is the news on Tretter,and Worthy. Also hope Mathews back for Bears. Would think for now need to cut a White or Harper for Sherrod, but if and when Tretter is ready, cut Newhouse. Hey Mr. Denver have you seen Farve lately the guy looks like his going to collect social security, plus he said he is having trouble remembering anything. He’s done!

    My vision for the Packers is: as they continue to get healthy. They will continue to get better . As long as we have no more major set backs.The sky is the limit .

    just went to Favre’s website, saw no indication that he is coming back to play for the Bears…the news section is old and only has charity events. Nice try Mr. Denver!!!

    My issue, even if Sherrod is ok to play, is he any good????
    If my memory serves me, I belieive right before his injury, he had a limited role of being a relief player.
    The rub was he kept making big mistakes over and over again and MM was fed up with him.

    So after 2.5 years, were expecting him to be what?
    This is a good chance to part ways and say, the experiment didn’t work. However, the pack will keep in so they don’t have to spend a buck drafting a quality o linemen next year.

    @immafubared, Sherrods initial developement was hampered by experiments of playing guard in training camp. He was learning the system and becoming a better LT than newhouse and thats why he was in the game against the chiefs when he got that broken leg. I’m not saying he is better than Barkley or Bak(man)tieari at this time, but he was showing promise and we have to give him that chance due to the cost (1st round pick) the Pack spent on him.

    Cutting Bush is dumb McMillian is far worse at Safety then Bush a damning statement if there ever was one. MD Jennings is slightly better then Bush at safety but still. No reason to keep McMillian once Robinson is good to go even if he ends up not being better what you have is so terrible behind Burnett that you mind as well. I mean Banjo a guy out of nowhere is quickly becoming there 2nd best Safety and all he has to do to do that is not blow 5 tackles a game and be decisive. If they somehow get Finley back and recover from there injuries all they need is an average 2nd safety and they have superbowl written all over them

    I have to say that I’m not really a Sherrod fan, we drafted him years ago, and he’s never contributed to the team’s success, he’s also been hurt about 95% of his career, and McCarthy believes he can still contribute? Maybe, until he gets hurt yet again.
