Right tackle Gosder Cherilus will visit his doctor in about a month to get an update on his progress from microfracture surgery. Cherilus played 12 games last season before suffering the injury.

He was participating in drills with teammates at the player-organized workouts.

“I’m on schedule, just getting my knee strength back and doing what I’m asked to do,” he said. “You saw everything I just did. I just did everything they put me through and we’re still progressing.”

–Quarterback Shaun Hill had back surgery last week, not finger surgery, as was originally reported.

Despite the surgery, Hill has done some light throwing and jogging at team workouts this week.

“It’s kind of been bugging me for a while, but last year, (I) was able to get through the season,” Hill said of his back problem. “I had a little injection before the season, and it helped me out and got me through it. This year, the injection didn’t quite help, so I opted for the surgery.”

After the surgery, Hills said he was told it would be four-to-six weeks to be recovered enough to play a game.

He concluded, “It’s been great. I’m six days post-op, and I’m running a little bit. I can’t throw extended stuff. The rotation, I don’t want to overdo it there. But I feel great. I’m glad I did it. Wish I would have done it earlier.”
