Packers won’t activate Derek Sherrod from PUP list

If the Packers are going to get any help on the offensive line, it’s not going to be from last year’s first-round pick Derek Sherrod.

According to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, the Packers elected to not activate Sherrod from the physically unable to perform list, despite the fact he’s practiced lately. Sherrod suffered a brutal leg injury last year, and apparently didn’t look particularly fluid in recent practices.

“He’s at the point, he’s coming off a major injury where you see progression throughout the week,” coach Mike McCarthy said. “The padded practices is actually what he needs, is probably where he looks the best, it has a chance to loosen up. He just needs more time. I thought he progressed each week and even within the week he got better.”

That leaves them with just a pair of undrafted rookie backups on the roster, guys who aren’t likely to upgrade a group that has struggled since right tackle Bryan Bulaga was lost for the season with a dislocated hip.

The Packers are second in the league in sacks allowed, and on pace to allow 54 this season, which would be the second-most in franchise history.

    That Packers o-line is about to surpass the Bears’ as the worst in the league.

    I think it’s also their turn for a tailspin collapse to end the season.

    Watch the Vikes upset them this weekend.

    You heard it here first, ladies.

    kid needs to get healthy…newhouse is serviceable, and you need more than serviceable at LT on team that has rodgers.

    He is totally out of shape and I don’t think wants to play. I would not be shocked to see him give up football versus getting his leg broke again.
    He wasn’t very good when he was playing and was relieved of duty often by others for not being coachable. He just didn’t get it or didn’t want to get it.
    The Pro game may be just too much for him.

    Ernie, please stop posting in Packer threads – it’s really embarrassing how stupid you appear.

    The problem has NOTHING to do with Sherrod being on the PUP list.

    The problem is basically they’re soft in the middle (lots of sacks coming from up the center, around Saturday) and Campen.

    This line will never become good so long as Campen is the coach.
