Lions T Gosder Cherilus Recovering From Knee Surgery
Coming off what can only be described as an up and down second season in the NFL, Detroit Lions right tackle Gosder Cherilus is now on the mend following arthroscopic knee surgery, according to Nick Cotsonika of the Detroit Free Press.
Cherilus will miss the third OTA practice on Thursday, and according to his agent Greg Diulus, the hope is Cherilus will be up and going again by the end of the month and certainly before minicamp June 23-25.
Cherilus, a first-round pick in 2008 from Boston College, dealt with knee and shoulder injuries last season. He also didn’t play well and was penalty prone on occasion.
The Lions will need to see better performance this season from Cherlius or soon they may be seeking two tackles as left tackle Jeff Backus is entering his 10th season.
