Rookie Cherilus To Play Against Packers

Rookie tackle Gosder Cherilus is expected to play this weekend in the team’s home opener. Cherilus was drafted by Detroit in the first round and offensive coordinator Jim Colletto said he has earned some playing time. Head coach Rod Marinelli also indicated he will make some changes to the lineup. Cornerback Leigh Bodden and right guard Manny Ramirez are expected to start. The contest with the Packers will be televised locally, as furniture retailer Gardner-White purchased the remaining tickets to make the game a sellout. Kickoff is set for 1:00 p.m. Sunday.
