“He’s screwed,” Cherilus said of Clowney, via Stephen Holder of the Indianapolis Star. “His game is all about explosion. That’s a problem. I’m out there dancing. I’m an offensive lineman. That’s a different ballgame. He’s screwed. I’m just being honest.”
Cherilus was forced to spend 10 weeks on crutches and then go through rehab treatments that span from three to five hours in the morning, as well as some additional work at night.
“He has to be fully, fully committed,” Cherilus said. “They told me I would be back in 12 months. I fought and came back in nine months. But it wasn’t right. It set me back for another six weeks. You are going to deal with stuff for the rest of your career. Period. You’re going to have to learn how to deal with it. And you have to be extremely disciplined. You have to do all the little things.”

Packers ILB A.J. Hawk said that despite seeing his playing decrease the past two games, he’s not worried about his long-term future in Green Bay.
“I’ve been preparing since the day I walked in here for the day I get cut,” Hawk said, via Rob Demovsky of ESPN. “I’ve been cut before, so whenever they decide to let me roll, that’s something I’ve been preparing for since I was 21 basically, when I got drafted. But I have no idea. I can’t predict the future; I definitely don’t try to. I don’t deal in hypotheticals, that’s for sure. They can tap me on the shoulder right now and get me out of here. So our contracts aren’t real contracts like that. They’re not obliged to keep me here through the end of, what, next year, I guess, my contract is.
“So I don’t think I let like my mind wander or anything towards what could happen. That’s not up to me, but try to hopefully get another ring, at least, before they give me the boot.”
