Cherilus, an unrestricted free agent, is contemplating retirement, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Cherilus hasn't formally decided to retire, but he reportedly isn't looking for a new contract this offseason either. The Lions' first-round selection back in 2008, the 32-year-old veteran has played in 132 games across the past nine seasons and was regarded as an above-average offensive lineman during his five years in Detroit. However, his performance largely declined thereafter, to the point that he spent this past season in Tampa Bay as a mere backup. While he seems intent on sitting out at least the 2017 campaign, a return for the 2018 season technically remains in the picture.
Cherilus (groin/ankle) is active for Sunday's contest against Carolina.
Cherilus was able to practice in full on Friday and his active status was expected. He'll be a depth option along the offensive line now that starting tackle Demar Dotson (concussion) has returned.
Cherilus (groin/ankle) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Panthers.
Cherilus logged full participation in practice Friday and is likely on the probable side of questionable. With starter Demar Dotson (concussion) returning, Cherilus will likely be a reserve option along the offensive line if active.
Cherilus (groin/ankle) was limited in Wednesday's practice, Jenna Laine of ESPN.com reports.
The veteran tackle thus starts Week 17 prep on better standing than last week, when he was unable to suit up for the Wednesday session and was ultimately ruled inactive for the Christmas Eve tilt against the Saints. While his improvement is naturally a positive, the even better news for the Bucs at right tackle is that starter Demar Dotson (concussion) is back to full practice participation and apparently on track to play against the Panthers in the season finale on Sunday.
Cherilus (groin/ankle) has been ruled out for Saturday's game against the Saints.
The Buccaneers will have to scramble to find a viable option at right tackle Saturday with both Cherilus and Demar Dotson (concussion) both sidelined. Their deficiency at right tackle was on full display Sunday against the Cowboys as defensive lineman David Irving wreaked havoc on quarterback Jameis Winston in the fourth quarter. Per Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times, the Buccaneers may be forced to use either Leonard Wester and Kevin Pamphile at right tackle Saturday.
Cherlius (groin/ankle) did not participate in Wednesday's practice, Jenna Laine of ESPN.com reports.
The first-round draft pick, formerly of the Lions, has been filling in for Demar Dotson (concussion) at right tackle, and with the latter in the concussion protocol, the Bucs may find themselves in dire straits at the position against the Saints on Saturday. Another update regarding Cherilus' status should be available after Thursday's practice.
Offensive lineman Gosder Cherilus agreed to a two-year contract with the Buccaneers on Monday, a source told NFL Network National Insider Ian Rapoport. Cherilus, who previously played for the Lions and Colts, was released by Indianapolis in late July.
Offensive tackle Gosder Cherilus was released by the Colts on Sunday, the team announced. Cherilus is a seven-year veteran. He started 29 games for the Colts over the last two seasons.
The Colts are trying offensive linemen at different positions in the team's offseason workouts.
Part of the reason for the shuffling is that a pair of linemen, right tackle Gosder Cherilus and right guard Donald Thomas, aren't taking part in OTAs.
Left guard Jack Mewhort filled in at right tackle and newly acquired Todd Herremans was at right guard.
At center, Jonotthan Harrison appears to have the early edge over Khaled Holmes.
"We've got some guys that we're moving around," coach Chuck Pagano said, per ESPN. "Come training camp, still going to be some competition."
Colts offensive tackle Gosder Cherilus continues to make progress from arthroscopic knee surgery and general manager Ryan Grigson said Cherilus should be ready to participate in team activities in June, reports The Herald Bulletin.
"Hopefully sooner," Grigson said.
Cherilus underwent arthroscopic knee surgery in January.
The Colts will have a very deep offensive line for OTAs. Currently, the team's roster features 10 players that have started in the NFL, per Colts.com.
The Colts will have battle for starting spots at center and on the right side of the line.
Khaled Holmes enters the offseason as the starting center, but he'll be pushed by Jonotthan Harrison, who started 10 games last season.
At right guard, offseason acquisition Todd Herremans has the inside track, but he'll compete with Hugh Thornton, a veteran of 20 NFL starts.
Gosder Cherilus, returning from knee and groin injuries that landed him on injured reserve last season, will start OTAs as the right tackle. Joe Reitz and Ulrick John will compete for the job.
Colts starting right tackle Gosder Cherilus underwent arthroscopic knee surgery, reports the Indianapolis Star. Cherilus was limited to 13 games this season as he dealt with knee, groin and shoulder injuries.
Cherilus, who sat out the playoffs, should be fine for the offseason program.
The Colts announced Wednesday starting right tackle Gosder Cherilus (groin) was placed on injured reserve, just hours after Cherilus took a few reps in practice.
"We make no excuses," coach Chuck Pagano said, per the Associated Press. "You'd like to go 16 weeks and have the same five guys start week in and week out, but that hasn't been the case since we got here. We've dealt with it every single year. So it is what it is, and we're fortunate that we've got a bunch of guys that have position flexibility, can play a lot of spots."
The Colts ruled these players inactive for the regular-season finale at Tennessee: tight end Dwayne Allen (knee), cornerback Sheldon Price, linebacker Jerrell Freeman (hamstring), guard Joe Reitz (ankle), offensive tackle Gosder Cherilus (groin), linebacker Bjoern Werner (shoulder) and nose tackle Zach Kerr.
Colts coach Chuck Pagano told reporters tight end Dwayne Allen (knee), tackle Gosder Cherilus (groin) and linebacker Bjoern Werner (shoulder) will all miss Sunday's regular season finale against the Titans, per the team's official website. The Colts have already clinched the No. 4 seed, and are taking a cautious approach with their injured players this week.
The Colts remain a 7-point road favorite against the Titans.
Colts coach Chuck Pagano told reporters that it's too early to tell if offensive lineman Gosder Cherilus will be able to play Week 17 against the Titans. Cherilus sat out Sunday's game against Dallas because of a groin injury.
Indianapolis is currently a 6 1/2-point favorite at Tennessee.
The Colts ruled the following players inactive for Sunday's game at Dallas: wideout T.Y. Hilton (hamstring), defensive back Jalil Brown, defensive back Sheldon Price, guard Hugh Thornton, guard Joe Reitz, guard Gosder Cherilus and nose tackle Montori Hughes.
The Colts revealed wide receiver T.Y. Hilton (hamstring) and cornerback Vontae Davis (groin) are being listed as questionable for Sunday’s game at Dallas.
While Hilton was not able to practice at all this week, Davis was a limited participant in Thursday and Friday’s practice.
The Colts ruled Gosder Cherilus (groin), Joe Reitz (ankle) and Hugh Thornton (knee) as out. While Josh Cribbs , Erik Walden and Reggie Wayne are listed as probable.
The Colts are 3 1/2-point underdogs.
The Colts have 11 injured players on their Friday report as they prepare to play Washington on Sunday. Four have been ruled out.
The questionables are safety Colt Anderson (knee) and cornerback Darius Butler (knee). The probables are tackle Gosder Cherilus (shoulder), cornerbacks Greg Toler (concussion), Vontae Davis (foot) and Josh Gordy (back) and defensive end Cory Redding (knee).
Colts coach Chuck Pagano told reporters that tackle Gosder Cherilus "will be back" Week 13 against the Redskins, per FOX Sports on Monday. Cherilus missed Week 12 because of a shoulder injury.
