GREEN BAY, Wis. -- There will not be 90 healthy players ready to go when the Green Bay Packers begin training camp Thursday morning.
Coach Mike McCarthy revealed Wednesday that tight end Andrew Quarless (torn right ACL, MCL) and offensive tackle Derek Sherrod (broken right leg) are still recoverying and did not pass their pre-training camp physicals after suffering injuries last season.
"I actually had a chance to see (Sherrod) Friday," McCarthy said of the team's 2011 first-round pick. "Rehab and football is really two different things. So I can't tell you exactly how far he is away. But he's been here every day, he's making progress. I'd say the last couple weeks he's been really coming on strong.
"He had a setback back in the spring, but he's getting better. The trainers are very confident in the progress that he's making."
