Packers' Derek Sherrod happy to be healthy again

Posted: Updated:
Green Bay, WI (WXOW) -

For the first time since his rookie year, 2011 first-round pick Derek Sherrod does not have to sit on the sidelines during Packers training camp.

The tackle missed camp in 2012 and last year while recovering from the broken leg he suffered in November of 2011.

The Packers like the way he moves now though, and he could be the first tackle used off the bench this season. Considering the team hasn't had two tackles play all 16 games since the 2007 season, that is a pretty important position.

"Anytime I'm not injured and out there with my teammates getting better and just out there running plays with them, it's a great thing," Sherrod said. "Just working on my techniques, pass and run blocking, getting stronger, and getting better in every fundamental aspect of my game."

Sherrod worked as David Bakhtiari's backup at left tackle during the offseason.
