Sherman (hamstring) will play in Saturday's game against Indianapolis, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports. Sherman sat out San Francisco's first two preseason games and will see limited action against the Colts. 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan said the plan is for the starting defense to play the first half, but Sherman could see less time as he works his way back from injury.
Sherman (hamstring) is expected to participate in practice this week, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports. Sherman, despite easing his way back into team portions of practice last week, did not play in Saturday's preseason game against the Texans. However, he is still expected to resume activity during practice this week and could finally make his 49ers debut Saturday against the Colts.
Sherman (hamstring) won't play in Saturday's preseason game in Houston, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. Sherman is technically listed as "unlikely" to suit up by the 49ers, but such lingo is reserved for those who won't play in a particular exhibition. After tearing his Achilles last November, he was expected to be a question mark for the start of this regular season, only to gain clearance to practice before training camp. That said, he's tended to a tight hamstring the past two weeks, explaining the team's approach with the offseason signing. Expect the 49ers to be cautious with Sherman until Week 1.
Sherman (hamstring) participated in team drills during Monday's practice session, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports reports. Sherman worked on individual drills during Sunday's practice and took part in team activities Monday, including an 11-on-11 red-zone session. The veteran cornerback looked spry during drills, but that does not necessarily mean the 49ers are going to debut their $27 million investment in Saturday's preseason game against the Texans. Sherman's regular-season availability is of the utmost importance, so if San Francisco decides to bench him against Houston as a precaution, expect Jimmie Ward to see additional snaps with the first-team defense.
Sherman (hamstring) is hoping to make his preseason debut next Saturday against the Texans, but he is still considered doubtful for the contest, according to David Lombardi of The Athletic. Sherman didn't suit up for the 49ers' preseason opener Thursday due to tightness in his hamstring, unrelated to the severe Achilles injury he rehabbed from this past offseason. The 30-year-old appears to be itching to make his on-field debut in red and gold, but the team understandably wants to continue to play it safe with the veteran. Barring any setbacks, we can expect to see Sherman in one of the team's next two preseason contests before he begins the regular season as San Francisco's top corner.
