So far, yes.

He will have missed about 2 years if he is PUPed this season, more if he lands on IR.

I getting the Justin Harrell flashbacks.

I just don't think he comes back from this leg problem.

is there reason to believe he will pup or ir this year? So if he is back the answer is, "no". If he doesn't it is still no. He has been a disappointment but it is injury related not talent related. it doesn't make him a bust just unlucky.

Last I read was:

fox sports WI said:
There was much better news for injured Packers offensive tackle Derek Sherrod. The 2011 first-round pick broke his leg as a rookie and missed the entire 2012 season.

Fourteen months after the gruesome injury, however, Sherrod is almost fully recovered.

"Sherrod is there every day; I see him in the training room every single day," McCarthy said. "The surgery he feels is a success and what he needed. As far as a timetable, I haven't done very well trying to speculate on when guys are coming back or not, but I hope he can work during the OTAs."

The OTAs (offseason training activities) aren't officially scheduled yet, but those workout sessions will likely take place in late May.

With Sherrod set to return, he likely will challenge incumbent starter Marshall Newhouse for the starting left tackle position. Sherrod's return to full health and recent positive progress will also lessen the immediate need for Packers general manager Ted Thompson to address the team's offensive tackle spot in the upcoming draft.

"I still have a lot of confidence that when (Sherrod) does have the opportunity, he'll be a productive player for us," McCarthy said.

Tony Mandrich was a bust. I don't see how someone who is injured can be labeled a bust without proving they are a bust.

That's just silly. He suffered one bad injury. That doesn't make the pick a bust, it's just unfortunate. There's no way to predict those type of things, they just happen.

I do agree it will take a lot for him to return to his pre-injury form, though. I hope he is able to fully move on from the injury, but it wouldn't shock me if he struggles for awhile, both mentally and physically.

No bust with a compound fracture of his leg. Look how long Mike Flanagan was out with the same thing. Coming back to be a competitive player at such an important position is near heroic.

Good for Derek Sherrod. This is encouraging to here he is making progress on that level.

Not at all. He had a slow start for reasons outside his control, he was learning and progressed enough to be trusted to play when bad luck struck. That injury, that late in the season it was an extreme long shot for him to make it back last season. He was far enough along where he was able to get practice time in which will benefit him for this coming season. It is not like he has missed almost 2 years.

Recovery Outlook

Merely saying that Sherrod’s recovery is murky right now is an understatement. There are positives signs present right now, such as Mike McCarthy stating that he sees Sherrod in the training room every day and positive reports about how his surgery was successful, but this injury has lingered for a long time. Sherrod will need to show that he can stay healthy and that he has not acquired too much rust from his significant time away from the football field. It’s not impossible, but it means that the Packers and their fans will have to wait until at least OTA’s to get a good idea of where Sherrod is at right now.

2013 Roster Preview

The bottom line is that it is way too early to give up on Sherrod, and thus he will have a spot on the roster in 2013. While looking at his situation it’s easy to conclude that the Packers have another player like Justin Harrell on their hands, a first round draft pick who seems to spend his entire career ridden with injuries and disappointment and simply soaking up a roster space due to his draft status, but jumping to this conclusion ignores just how the Packers and Sherrod have arrived at where they are with him right now. Sherrod has not had the benefit of any OTA’s, minicamps, rookie minicamps, or even offseason training sessions due to his health or the labor situation of the NFL. He has not had any meaningful snaps at his most natural position, left tackle. He has not been a part of a real competition for that position either. As such his time with the Packers has resulted in him being forced into foreign positions on the line with little to no coaching and preparation. This means that he has a lot to prove, but it also means he has yet to prove that he is not cut out for the NFL either.

There is a FatHead cutout of Sherrod at the Packers HoF, with a cutout of his hand too.

The Packers always have a display of the largest player on the team, so that kids can come through and compare the size of their hands with that of the largest player.

Sherrod has long, lanky bones and he is a big dude. That's gonna take some time to heal, especially having busted it late in the season.

Really, I want this player to return to the roster and live up to his own dreams for playing LT. However, due to the severity of his injury, I could care less when that happens.

As it stands, Sherrod's missed 1.5 seasons. Flanagan missed more than 2.5 seasons, nearly 3. Third Round pick. Center from UCLA. Drafted '96, busted his leg during an exhibition game on the first play. 6 surgeries later, he played his first official regular season game at C in Dec. of 1999 as Winters' backup. By 2001 he's the starting C. By 2003 he's in the Pro Bowl. Played with GB till 2006.

If Derek Sherrod comes back this season to play LT for us, I will be completely amazed at his accomplishment. I hope he does it!

Unlike Flanagan, there has been no re-injury or need for multiple surgeries (to my knowledge). It was apparently a really bad break, but I'm optimistic he can come back at or near 100% this season. I'm less optimistic about subsequent breaks - there seems to be a tendency of some people to get repeats.

Zero2Cool: Thanks 68md, good to know some notice and appreciate.
Zero2Cool: Holding a different or less than popular view is perfectly fine. You fail to understand this even though I repeatedly tell you. It's annoyin

Smokey: good night uffda.

uffda udfa: Denver D just dominated the current MVP and the former this year.
uffda udfa: Cam for LVP in the SB. No character.
uffda udfa: Newton is a wuss. MVP? LOL.
uffda udfa: #VonFire
uffda udfa: People who have passion and expectations aren't A words. Accepting less than the best doesn't make you not one either.
uffda udfa: Sorry, Kevin...maybe you called Dakota an A word and not me? Had to be one of us.
uffda udfa: Marshawn Lynch announced his retirement in a cool way via twitter. What could've been in Green Bay, Marshawn!
uffda udfa: It's okay... you called me the "A" word. All because I don't tickle the ears. I get it.
uffda udfa: So someone like Buck deserves privileges because he's a better fan than me due to his flattering opinions?

uffda udfa: Talib playing a Burfict half so far.
uffda udfa: You have an R rated section on a Packers board. I think moving the guys you really don't want rocking the boat to their own forum is a great
uffda udfa: I think the same was likely said at KFAN when it was suggested they have a Packers show. I believe they still have it. I used to produce it
Zero2Cool: Seriously think what you're asking and do so before asking. Unreal.
uffda udfa: Aaron walking gingerly in that SB MVP introduction thing.
uffda udfa: May I suggest something? How about a "Packers Cynics" sub forum. A place for the Dakota's and me. I would exclusively post there.
Zero2Cool: One way or another, there is going to be a big change coming to PH.
uffda udfa: I don't want to be difficult but you do for some reason. I know you've been dealing with a lot.
