Derek Sherrod Injury Update: Packers Offensive Tackle Suffers Broken Leg

The one transaction that’s easiest to predict this week is that the Green Bay Packers will be signing help at the offensive tackle position. That’s because today’s game against the Kansas City Chiefs cost them a couple. First round pick Derek Sherrod went down in the second half after taking over for an injured Bryan Bulaga and was carted off the field. After the game, the results of his injury became clear.

The AP reports, “Sherrod was blocking near the end of a pass play when Hali slammed into his leg. It buckled at a gruesome angle and Sherrod remained down on the turf while trainers tended to him. His left knee was eventually put in an air cast and he was taken off the field on a cart. The team initially said he hurt his knee. Packers coach Mike McCarthy said after the game that Sherrod had broken his leg.”

Derek Sherrod Injury Update: Packers Tackle Taken Off Field On Stretcher

It’s been a total nightmare today for the Green Bay Packers offensive tackles who were already missing starting left tackle Chad Clifton due to back issues. They’ve lost Bryan Bulaga earlier today to injury as he was taken off to the locker room and then brought back to the sideline. Now the word is that Derek Sherrod is being taken off of the field on a stretcher.

The only tackles left on the active roster is Evan Dietrich-Smith who has played mostly at guard for the Packers and free agent rookie Ray Dominguez, so the Packers are definitely going to have to get creative to keep the Chiefs pass rushers like Tamba Hali and Justin Houston and Wallace Gilberry away from Aaron Rodgers.

The extent of Sherrod’s injury is unknown at this time, but it’s clear that he’s done for the day against the Chiefs. Given that Bulaga still hasn’t grabbed for his helmet means that the Packers are going to have to move forward with a patchwork offensive line for the rest of the game.
