The last first-round pick of the Matt Millen era has a lot of work to do before making his old boss look smart. (Okay, that could take a while.)
Tackle Gosder Cherilus, who has been inconsistent at best as a pro, underwent knee surgery recently, according to the Detroit Free Press. It’s described as an “arthroscopic” procedure, but his status for a late June mandatory minicamp is uncertain. He should be back for camp.
Last year, Cherilus’ coaches chided him for his up-and-down play, which has included a lot of mental errors. Cherilus will start at right tackle this season.
