GREEN BAY — While Derek Sherrod was back on the field Wednesday, the rest of the Green Bay Packers' physically unable to perform listers remained on the sideline.

Nevertheless, defensive end Jerel Worthy, who suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee in the regular-season finale at Minnesota and underwent surgery in January, was still all smiles, even though he was hoping general manager Ted Thompson would have green-lit him on the first day.

"I would love to be out there today. I would love to be out there running around with the guys. I feel like it's been a long time," Worthy said. "I would love to get out there. But Ted's going to do everything in the best interest of the team. With the decisions they make upstairs, you just have to respect them and roll with them."

Asked when he thought he might practice, Worthy replied, "They've been kind of keeping me in the dark about it, not letting my expectations get too high or too low, so I just have to make sure I'm ready to go. It could be this week, next week, two weeks — I'm not sure. On my end, I just have to make sure I'm preparing as if I might play this week."

While Worthy is expected to be cleared sometime in the next three weeks — once he is, another three-week window will open for him to practice without counting against the 53-man roster — it's unclear when or if offensive lineman JC Tretter or safety Sean Richardson will get the go-ahead.

Tretter broke his ankle during the first practice of organized team activities in May and was on crutches for almost four months, still hasn't been cleared to start running.

"We've made some good strides these past two weeks now, moving around a little better," Tretter said. "We're getting it back to 100 percent. You'd love for that to fall into the window, but we're just being smart with it and doing everything we can to get back.

"From where I came a month ago until now, I'm on a different pace than where I was the first four months. Everything's kind of speeding up to where I don't know where I'm going to fall in a week or two weeks. So I don't know. We're making sure my body feels good and making sure the ankle's picking everything up the way it should be and I'm hoping I can get out there and practice at some point."

Like starting left tackle David Bakhtiari, Tretter was a fourth-round pick this spring and was expected to provide depth on the line. With backup center/guard Greg Van Roten landing on injured reserve with a foot injury, Tretter could certainly help the depth, but that seems unlikely.

"I'm getting close to being able to run full-speed. (The next step would be) cutting and planting and all that stuff," Tretter said. "You can haunt yourself with what-ifs, but I try to avoid what-if situations and what could have been. That's not going to help you. You're never going to feel better thinking about the what-ifs. So I haven't thought about it. All I've focused on is getting the ankle back to 100 percent, and it's getting there."

Richardson, meanwhile, still hasn't gotten the medical staff's clearance for the career-threatening neck injury he suffered last year. The doctors could decide that Richardson is at too high of risk of a debilitating neck injury to clear him to return, like they did with three-time Pro Bowl safety Nick Collins.

"I talk to the team doctors just about every week. We're just making sure everything's still kosher, no setbacks, no injuries, no loss of motion and stuff like that," Richardson said. "Whatever happens, happens. I'm praying and hoping that I can be able to play again and everything will be fine. If it don't, then life goes on. I'm very optimistic. Coaches and everybody are optimistic. I have a strong supporting cast behind me. I just go out and work hard every day and stay upbeat and up-to-date in the meeting room and at practice and do my rehab. I'm just hopeful for great news."

D line is too deep right now to not milk all 6 weeks out of Worthy being on PUP. They don't need him and he's a good reserve that doesn't cost a roster spot, no reason to change that until you have to.

Tretter I don't expect to see this year.

Richardson I'm not sure of because in the past they haven't given guys with this injury as much time to try and come back. I'm thinking they've seen some promising signs with it and he's got a chance.

Sherrod I'm kind of excited about because he's the best physical specimen of a LT that I can remember us having in quite some time. That doesn't mean he'll be good necessarily but it's some promising potential that we haven't had on this roster. He's bound to have some rust after not playing for a couple years but hopefully he can pick it up.

uffda udfa: Nope. Too much pressure for them.
Zero2Cool: NFL MVP's don't seem to win the Super Bowl the same year, do they?
Zero2Cool: Panthers played uninspired and predictable, actually (and sadly) reminded me of the Packers. :(
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
uffda udfa: Good night, Smokey.
Smokey: good night uffda.
uffda udfa: Wonder how Colts fans feel, and Mr. Irsay?
uffda udfa: Today, anyway.
Smokey: DEFENSE DOES WIN CHAMPIONSHIPS TT !
uffda udfa: Carolina will never be back to a SB under Cam Newton.
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?
68md: wet blanket ? He works his ass off to keep the place going for you ?
Smokey: Zero, Why are you such a wet blanket host ? A real SB "Chat" should have been a priority for this site. Wet Blanket strikes again.
Zero2Cool: BTW, I'm not saying you're an asshole. I'm stating a fact, that's all.
Zero2Cool: You don't get it. You confuse right and privilege. Assholes don't deserve privileges. Get it, got it, good.
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.
Zero2Cool: Precisely what I thought.
uffda udfa: Nah, that's okay. I already asked.
Zero2Cool: If you want your name changed, you need to send me a PM with the name change. Thank you.
