Cherilus had an abysmal season this year and was the worst player on the line all season long. He was clearly playing hurt all season and eventually ended up on IR.
While its great to see players fight through injuries at times, Cherilus should have taken a seat earlier in the year. The year before, he was a steady bookend for the offensive line and rarely a liability.
Hopefully he’ll come back healthy next season because the Colts don’t have another option at the position. 2015 might essentially be a tryout for the rest of his contract as the numbers balloon up in the final two season.
