49ers' Richard Sherman: Returns to elite form in 2019
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

49ers' Richard Sherman: Another full practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sherman (hamstring) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice, Nick Wagoner of reports.

Sherman said Wednesday that he plans to suit up against the Rams on Saturday, per Wagoner. Barring any setbacks, the 31-year-old stands to draw his usual start at cornerback Week 16.

49ers' Richard Sherman: Back at full speed
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sherman (hamstring) was listed as a full practice participant after the 49ers' walk-through Tuesday, Nick Wagoner of reports.

It wasn't a regular practice, but the team apparently feels confident enough in Sherman's health to list him as a full participant. Assuming the 31-year-old doesn't have a setback, he'll be back out there against the Rams on Saturday.

49ers' Richard Sherman: Ruled out of Week 15
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sherman (hamstring) has been ruled out of Sunday's game against the Falcons, Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

While Sherman won't play Sunday, Cam Inman of The San Jose Mercury News reports that coach Kyle Shanahan denied rumors that the 31-year-old had been ruled out for the year. With two divisional matchups to close out the regular season, it makes sense the 49ers would take the cautious approach with their star corner in a winnable home game against Atlanta.

49ers' Richard Sherman: Not practicing, but making progress
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sherman (hamstring) did not practice Thursday, Nick Wagoner of reports.

Sherman has now missed two consecutive practices while nursing a Grade 2 hamstring strain. The veteran said he managed to run in the range of "19 miles per hour, 20 miles per hour" on a treadmill Thursday, per Matt Barrows of The Athletic, but on-field cutting could prove a more difficult challenge to surmount that straight-ahead running. He'll have one more chance to upgrade his level of practice activity ahead of Sunday's tilt against the Falcons.

49ers' Richard Sherman: DNP on Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sherman (hamstring) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Cam Inman of the San Jose Mercury News reports.

Sherman, who's dealing with a Grade 2 hamstring strain, would likely need to log at least a limited practice at some point throughout the week in order to suit up for Sunday's tilt against the Falcons. If he remains sidelined, however, Emmanuel Moseley and K'Waun Williams (concussion) could see additional reps across from Ahkello Witherspoon.

49ers' Richard Sherman: Nursing Grade 2 strain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sherman suffered a Grade 2 hamstring strain during Sunday's win over the Saints, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

Sherman underwent an MRI on his hamstring Monday, the results of which diagnosed a Grade 2 strain. Such injuries typically carry a recovery timetable of at least one week, making Sherman's chances of suiting up against the Falcons in Week 15 uncertain, but it's worth keeping in mind that the veteran cornerback has proven a consistent ability to tough out injuries in his career. With K'Waun Williams in the concussion protocol, Emmanuel Moseley and D.J. Reed could be in for expanded roles on defense if Sherman is forced to miss any time.

49ers' Richard Sherman: Status for Week 15 murky
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sherman (hamstring) underwent an MRI on Monday and could be in danger of missing Week 15's matchup against the Falcons, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

Sherman intends to do all he can in practice this week to suit up Sunday against the Falcons, but he wasn't able to retake the field during Week 14's win over the Saints. The veteran cornerback has shown an ability to play through injuries in his career, but the tricky nature of hamstring issues means he can't be considered a lock to retake the field Week 15. Count on Wednesday's first practice report of the week to shed some light on Sherman's status.

49ers' Richard Sherman: Injures hamstring Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sherman exited Sunday's win over the Saints with a hamstring injury, Nick Wagoner of reports.

Sherman battled through a knee injury during last week's loss to the Ravens, but he admitted he couldn't tough out this issue. "I definitely couldn't go back in this one," Sherman said. "We've got a long week ahead of us to try to get it together. Like I always say, don't count me out until I'm out." Sherman's words allude to his ability to play through injuries throughout his career, but hamstring injuries are tricky, so it's worth keeping an eye on his practice status ahead of Week 15's matchup against the Falcons.

49ers' Richard Sherman: Not on injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sherman (knee) does not have an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Saints, Nick Wagoner of reports.

Sherman picked up a sprained knee during Week 13's game against the Ravens, but he appears to already be operating without limitations. The veteran corner is set to draw his usual start in New Orleans on Sunday.

49ers' Richard Sherman: Held back during practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sherman (knee) was limited in Wednesday's practice, Jennifer Lee Chan of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Sherman suffered a sprained knee during Week 13's loss to the Ravens, but following the contest, he said he'd be ready for Sunday's matchup against the Saints. The veteran corner's ability to get on the practice field supports that notion, but he'll need to finish the week without a setback first.

49ers' Richard Sherman: Managing knee sprain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sherman is considered day-to-day after suffering a knee sprain during Sunday's loss to the Ravens, Jennifer Lee Chan of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Sherman was limping after the contest and is liable to sit out some practice this week, but said he still expects to play next Sunday at New Orleans. The veteran cornerback exited the loss to Baltimore multiple times due to the injury but was still able to finish the game. Sherman seems headed towards a questionable tag for Week 14, but there should be a better idea of his potential availability once the 49ers start practicing later in the week.

49ers' Richard Sherman: Expects to play Week 14
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sherman (leg) walked with a limp following Sunday's 20-17 loss to the Ravens but said he expects to play Week 14 against the Saints, Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Sherman also relayed that he probably won't practice every day this week to help aid the recovery. The veteran cornerback left the game a couple times and even collapsed on the sidelines, but he was able to finish. It's worth monitoring Sherman's status as the week progresses, as it'd be a major loss if he's unable to play since Sherman has allowed a 50.8 passer rating when targeted this season.

49ers' Richard Sherman: Records third pick
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sherman generated four solo tackles and an interception in Sunday's 51-13 win over the Titans.

Kyle Allen's pass essentially sought out Sherman in coverage, but the turnover counts the same. Sherman now has three interceptions through the first seven games, which is his highest total since his 2016 campaign with the Seahawks.

49ers' Richard Sherman: No lingering effects
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sherman suffered a stinger during Sunday's game against the Rams but wasn't listed on Wednesday's injury report.

Sherman will be good to go for Sunday's game against the Redskins. Depending on who the Redskins start under center -- Case Keenum (foot) sat out of Wednesday's practice -- Sherman could have high interception potential since Dwayne Haskins threw three picks in barely over a half of a game.

49ers' Richard Sherman: Returns after suffering stinger
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sherman suffered a shoulder stinger in Sunday's victory over the Rams, but was able to return to the game, Nick Wagoner of reports.

It remains to be seen if the injury will have any long-term effect on Sherman, but his return to action provides reason to believe he will avoid missing any time. Sherman racked up four tackles (three solo) in Sunday's win.

49ers' Richard Sherman: Picks off Mayfield on second drive
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sherman generated four solo tackles, two pass breakups and an interception in Monday's 31-3 win over the Browns.

Sherman fired up the game by snagging an interception on the Browns' second offensive drive, and he was impressive in coverage all night. That's been the 31-year-old's theme all season, though, as he's allowed just a 35.6 passer rating when targeted by opposing quarterbacks this season. Sherman will need to be on top of his game again in Week 6 for a divisional matchup against the Rams, as Jared Goff has thrown for 912 yards over the last two weeks.

49ers' Richard Sherman: Scores defensive touchdown
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sherman had five tackles (four solo), two pass defenses and an interception return for a touchdown in Sunday's 31-17 win over Tampa Bay.

Sherman stated in the preseason that he finally feels that he can play without restrictions following a ruptured Achilles two years ago. The shutdown corner backed up his words with a vintage performance that helped carry his team over the Bucs. Sherman has already surpassed last year's interception-less season, and improved mobility could lead to a slight uptick in tackles as well.

49ers' Richard Sherman: Will play without limitations
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sherman will play without physical restrictions after having the sutures from his heel removed this past offseason, Jennifer Lee Chan of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Sherman admitted that the sutures from his surgically repaired Achilles tendon had him second-guessing his abilities on the field last season. With the stitches being removed this past February, the All-Pro corner is feeling "exceptional" both mentally and physically heading into training camp and the 2019 regular season. Sherman is slated to begin the campaign as the 49ers' top corner, and should see his interception totals rebound (zero in 2018) with a revamped defensive line generating pressure on opposing quarterbacks.

49ers' Richard Sherman: Finishes season healthy
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sherman finished his first season in San Francisco with 37 tackles (30 solo), a sack and no interceptions.

Sherman missed two games with a combination of minor injuries, but he finished the campaign with a clean bill of health coming off of an Achilles' tear that cut his 2017 season short and ultimately led to an abrupt departure from Seattle. The 30-year-old did not record an interception for the first time in his eight-year career, but that was due in large part to opposing offenses opting to throw away from the side of the field he lined up on. The veteran can no longer keep up with the Tyreek Hills of the world, but he proved that his technique and ability to lock down short and intermediate routes is as good as ever. Sherman will serve as the 49ers' top corner and vocal leader on defense heading into the 2019 season.
