Green Bay Packers offensive tackle Derek Sherrod is likely lost for the season because of a broken tibia and fibula.

The Packers' first round pick in 2011 sustained the injuries in December against the Kansas City Chiefs and has not returned.

"He's not ready," coach Mike McCarthy told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. "That's really all I can tell you. I know he's frustrated, but we all saw the injury. It was a serious injury, definitely something that we're not going to rush him back."

The Packers hoped that Sherrod would be ready by training camp. Instead, he would up on the physically unable to perform list and has until Nov. 5 to return to practice. However, the Packers are closer to placing him on injured reserve.

Sherrod played five games last year as a backup.
