  • Buccaneers' Richard Sherman: Dealing with Achilles injury

    Sherman (Achilles) didn't practice Wednesday, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports. Coach Bruce Arians wouldn't provide any clarity on how servere Sherman's injury is, but there doesn't appear to be too much cause for concern. The missed practice could just be a precautionary move as he works back from a serious calf issue. The veteran cornerback returned to action against the Bills for the first time since Week 6, playing a minimal role (25 percent of the team's defensive snaps).

While it's not yet clear whether he'll be able to return against the Bills on Sunday, he appears to be trending in the right direction.

  • Buccaneers' Richard Sherman: Aiming for Week 14 return

    Sherman (calf) feels "really good" and is planning to return in Week 14 against the Bills as long as he gains medical clearance, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.

  • Buccaneers' Richard Sherman: Questionable Week 8

    Sherman (hamstring) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Saints, Scott Smith of the Buccaneers' official site reports.

Ross Cockrell and Pierre Desir would have increased roles should Sherman end up missing his second straight contest.

  • Buccaneers' Richard Sherman: Expected to miss time

    Sherman (hamstring) will undergo an MRI on Friday, and the expectation is that he will miss some time, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. The veteran cornerback joined Tampa Bay to help fill in for injuries elsewhere in the secondary, and he handled an immediate starting role but was forced to exit Thursday's win over the Eagles due to a hamstring issue. If Sherman can't go versus Chicago in Week 7, Ross Cockrell will likely take on an expanded role.

  • Richard Sherman: Books meeting with Tampa

    Sherman is scheduled to visit the Buccaneers on Tuesday, Tom Pelissero and Ian Rapoport of NFL Network report. Both of Sherman's former teams -- the Seahawks and 49ers -- have been in contact with the veteran cornerback since the start of the season, but the trip to Tampa Bay marks his first in-person meeting as he looks to resume his career. Sherman made headlines this summer when he was arrested in Washington on five misdemeanor charges, and though he has since pled not guilty to all charges and has sought therapy, he could still face discipline from the league at some point down the road. Lower-body injuries have sidelined the five-time Pro Bowl selection for six games over the past two seasons, but when available to suit up, the 33-year-old has shown that he can still play at a high level.

  • 49ers' Richard Sherman: Set to miss 2020 finale

    Sherman (calf) has been ruled out for San Francisco's regular-season finale against Seattle, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports. It's now confirmed the five-time Pro Bowler will miss back-to-back games to close out his third campaign with the 49ers. Sherman sat out just three combined games over his first two years with the team, but a calf injury has held the 32-year-old to five appearances in 2020. With the veteran set to become an unrestricted free agent in March, it remains to be seen if Sherman has played his last game as a 49er.

  • 49ers' Richard Sherman: Battling calf injury

    Sherman (calf) didn't participate in Tuesday's practice. Sherman reported calf soreness after this past Sunday's 41-33 loss to the Cowboys. The veteran cornerback already missed nine games this year due to a calf injury, so there is expected concern about his health. As a result, Sherman's status for the rest of the season is in question, per Cam Inman of The Mercury News. The 32-year-old is set to be an unrestricted free agent in March and he has already stated that it would be a "miracle" if he re-signed with the 49ers this offseason. With the playoffs out of reach, Sherman may be best served by sitting out and ensuring he's at 100 percent next season.

  • 49ers' Richard Sherman: Not ready yet

    Sherman (calf) won't be activated from IR for Sunday's game against the Saints, Cam Inman of The Mercury News reports. Earlier in the week, it sounded like Sherman had a chance to play against the Saints, but the veteran cornerback will utilize the Week 11 bye to get fully healthy in hopes of returning Week 12 against the Rams. Jason Verrett and Emmanuel Moseley are locked into starting roles for the time being, but one of the two will lose reps once Sherman returns.

  • 49ers' Richard Sherman: Set to miss more time

    Coach Kyle Shanahan said Wednesday that Sherman (calf) is still a few weeks away from returning, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports. Starting Sunday against the Patriots, San Francisco has a stretch of three games in a 12-day span, and based on Shanahan's comments, it doesn't appear that Sherman will be available for any of those contests. Instead, the 49ers are more realistically hoping that Sherman will be ready to play after the team's Week 10 bye. Sherman has been sidelined since straining his calf in the 49ers' season-opening loss to the Cardinals.

  • 49ers' Richard Sherman: Unlikely to play Week 6

    Coach Kyle Shanahan said Monday that Sherman (calf) has endured "some setbacks" and isn't expected to play Sunday versus the Rams, David Lombardi of The Athletic reports. The 49ers' secondary could desperately use Sherman back in the lineup, as it was torched for 350 passing yards by Ryan Fitzpatrick in this past Sunday's 43-17 loss to the Dolphins. However, the 32-year-old can't seem to shake the calf strain and is expected to miss a fifth straight game. Shanahan relayed that Sherman won't need surgery but could receive shots to help ease the inflammation issues that have caused the extended absence, according to Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com.

  • 49ers' Richard Sherman: Could land on IR

    The 49ers could place Sherman on injured reserve Wednesday due to an unspecified injury, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports. The 49ers haven't commented on the nature of Sherman's injury, but Garafolo suggests the cornerback could be dealing with a leg issue. As Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chroniclenotes, Sherman played 78 of the 49ers' 82 defensive snaps in the Week 1 loss to the Cardinals, and his name didn't come up Monday when coach Kyle Shanahan discussed the team's injuries. If the 49ers do end up placing the cornerback on IR, he would miss at least three weeks.

  • 49ers' Richard Sherman: Returns to elite form in 2019

    Sherman recorded 61 tackles (48 solo), 11 passes defended, three interceptions and a touchdown in 15 games during the 2019 regular season. Sherman wasn't the same player his first year in San Francisco coming off a torn Achilles tendon, but an additional year of recovery had the corner looking closer to the shutdown version we became accustomed to during his days in Seattle. The 31-year-old suffered a few minor injuries along the way, but he was generally healthy and was only forced to miss one game (including the playoffs). Assuming good health, Sherman will look to turn in another elite season in coverage behind the 49ers' ferocious pass rush.
