OT Cherilus Looking to Make it Back Week One After Microfracture Surgery

Pro Football Weekly talks about the quick recovery of OT Gosder Cherilus.

The Lions’ offseason, even with the lockout, has been filled with good news on the injury front. QB Matthew Stafford and RB Jahvid Best has reportedly recovered nicely from their injuries and are impressing teammates in player led workouts. But perhaps the most surprising recovery has been that of ORT Gosder Cherilus, who had microfracture surgery in December. Considered to have an eight-to-12-month recovery, Cherilus was a surprise participant in the Lions’ informal workouts in last week and claims to be rearing to go. He’ll know more after meeting with his doctor in June, but Cherilus — who had his best season last year — thinks he can return by Week One. The Lions widely were expected to draft an offensive tackle last month but passed until taking quite green Johnny Culbreath in Round Seven.
