Gosder Cherilus Faces No Punishment From NFL

Lions rookie right tackle Gosder Cherilus will not face a suspension or anything like that for being involved in a Boston bar brawl last July.  It was originally thought that he might have a personal conduct review since his legal issues weren't resolved until just recently, but that won't be the case.

Cherilus, though, will not be disciplined by the league for his role in Boston bar fight in July 2007. In early July this year, Cherilus was sentenced to one-year of probation and ordered to pay the victim $52,000 in medical expenses.

Earlier today, NFL spokesman Greg Aiello cleared up the situation.

"No discipline for Cherilus because incident occurred prior to his NFL career,'' Aiello wrote in an e-mail.
