According to coach Pete Carroll, Sherman played through an MCL injury over the second half of this season, Liz Mathews of 710 ESPN Seattle reports. Sherman was regularly given days off from practice over the past couple months, which, in hindsight, could've been related to his knee problem. While Carroll revealed Sherman carried an MCL injury, he didn't reveal the exact nature of the ailment or how it would be treated this offseason. Regardless of his injury, Sherman didn't miss a game this season, and finished with 58 tackles, 13 pass deflections and four interceptions.
Sherman (rest) did not practice Wednesday, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports. The Seahawks' defense didn't get off the field much during Sunday's 6-6 tie with the Cardinals, causing Sherman to experience heat exhaustion after the game, The Seattle Times reports. He'll have his workload monitored during practice this week, but he isn't in any danger of missing this week's showdown against Drew Brees and Co.
Sherman had two interceptions Sunday in a win against the Jets. Sherman's 28 career interceptions are the most in the NFL since 2011. Through the first three games, he had been targeted nine times, but the Jets threw his way 13 times. Sherman allowed four completions, including a TD to Brandon Marshall, but the two picks made up for that. The Seahawks have a bye in Week 4 before facing Julio Jones and Falcons in Week 5.
Pete Carroll relayed Wednesday that Seahawks premier cornerback Richard Sherman (ankle) is "ready" to play Thursday in San Francisco. Sherman was rested the last few days in order to rest "a little thing on his ankle," but will be available for the 71st consecutive game to start his career.
Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman (ankle) was a non-participant at Tuesday's practice. Sherman was limited at Monday's practice, and while the downgrade would normally be cause for concern, there's been no other indication that his ankle injury is serious. He didn't miss any time in Sunday's loss to the Panthers.
