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.
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.

Sherman continues to nurse a lingering calf injury but will nonetheless draw the start at left cornerback during Thursday Night Football. The veteran will work to limit an Oakland passing attack that's led by Jordy Nelson and Brandon LaFell.
Sherman (calf) is listed as questionable for Thursday's game against the Raiders.
Sherman continues to nurse a calf injury sustained during a Week 3 loss to the Chiefs. The veteran cornerback did look healthy last week, leading the 49ers in tackles and recording a sack during the team's 18-15 loss to the Cardinals, but it remains to be seen whether Sheman will suit up Thursday after a short week of rest.
Sherman wrapped up seven tackles (all solo) and recorded a sack in Sunday's 18-15 loss to Arizona.
Sherman looked healthy after missing Week 7's contest, leading the team in tackles and also chipping in his first sack of the season on a corner blitz. While this was a strong IDP performance, the veteran corner usually doesn't generate much statistically when he is on the field, as teams still feel reluctant throwing his way. The strong outing does bode well for Sherman's overall health heading into Thursday's matchup against the Raiders.
Sherman (calf) is active for Sunday's game against the Cardinals.
Sherman missed last week's game against the Rams and was limited throughout practice this week, but appears to have gotten healthy enough to start against the Cardinals on Sunday. The veteran cornerback will attempt to shut down rookie quarterback Josh Rosen and Arizona's passing attack.
Sherman (calf), who is listed as questionable on the official injury report for Sunday's game against the Cardinals, is expected to play, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
Sherman was a limited participant in Friday's practice. The veteran cornerback did not suit up for San Francisco's loss to the Rams in Week 7, but it sounds like he will play this time around. Still, check his status before kickoff.
Sherman (calf) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Cardinals, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.
Sherman was a limited participant in Friday's practice. The veteran cornerback did not suit up for San Francisco's loss to the Rams in Week 7, but he appears to have a reasonable shot of playing against the Cardinals on Sunday. Sherman's status will likely be a game-time decision.
Sherman (calf) said he's "pretty sure" he can play Sunday, Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Sherman has missed two games this season, including last week's contest against the Rams. He did add that he may not be able to play in Week 9, however, as the 49ers play Thursday night and a three-day turnaround would be a challenge. Look for Greg Mabin and K'Waun Williams to continue seeing extra reps when Sherman is limited or sidelined.
Sherman (calf) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Rams.
Though he no longer plays at an All-Pro level, Sherman's absence for the second time this season is a significant one with the 49ers also down another key cornerback in Jimmie Ward (hamstring). That will force the 49ers to lean heavily on depth options Greg Mabin and K'Waun Williams in addition to starter Ahkello Witherspoon, a scary prospect against a prolific Rams aerial attack. Sherman will look to get healthy in time for the 49ers' Week 8 matchup with the Cardinals.
Sherman (calf) is a game-time decision for Sunday's game versus the Rams, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
Sherman has been a specter in the fantasy realm this season, making just eight tackles and two pass breakups in five games. His absence would deplete the secondary since Jimmie Ward (hamstring) is doubtful and Ahkello Witherspoon (concussion) is a game-time decision as well.
Sherman (calf) is listed as questionable for Sunday's matchup against the Rams, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.
Sherman practiced in limited fashions Wednesday and Thursday. The former Seahawk had a quiet game last Monday against the Packers, recording just one tackle over 69 snaps. If Sherman misses time Sunday, Jimmie Ward could see more snaps.
Sherman (calf) is active for Sunday's Week 5 tilt against the Cardinals.
The veteran cornerback will make a sooner-than-expected return from his calf issue and joins a 49ers secondary that's as healthy as it's been all season. Sherman has seven tackles (three solo) and a pair of defensed passes over the three games he's suited up for this season.
Sherman (calf) is expected to play Sunday versus the Cardinals, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
It's a surprising report since Sherman was expected to miss at least two weeks, with this game being the second. However, Sherman could be used in a limited capacity to not aggravate his injury, so fantasy owners should keep that in mind when streaming him in IDP settings. The 30-year-old corner has made seven tackles (three solo) and two pass breakups in three games this season.
Sherman (calf) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game versus the Cardinals, Jon Machota of The Dallas Morning News reports.
After his initial diagnosis, Sherman was expected to miss this game and he was given a slim chance to play earlier this week, too. Therefore, it's tough to have optimism that Sherman will suit up, and if he does, a full workload shouldn't be expected.
Sherman (calf) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice.
Sherman is attempting to play against the Cardinals on Sunday, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. It seems unlikely that the veteran cornerback has fully recovered from a calf strain sustained during Week 3, and San Francisco won't be prone to rush Sherman back to the field. Nonetheless, logging a limited participation in practice is a positive sign for Sherman's recovery. Barring any unexpected developments, it seems likely that Jaquiski Tartt will serve as the 49ers' starting left cornerback Sunday.
Sherman (calf) has a slim chance of playing in Week 5's action, David Lombardi of The Athletic reports.
Sherman has a chance at playing in San Francisco's game against the Cardinals but it's not probable, per the report. The Niners are eager to get Sherman back, but don't expect them to rush the veteran back onto the field before he's ready. Barring any changing developments, Jaquiski Tartt figures to start Sunday's divisional contest.
Sherman (calf) is expected to be out for 2-to-3 weeks, Jordan Schultz of ESPN.com reports.
Sherman entered Sunday's game against the Chiefs nursing a heel issue, then left the contest after suffering a left calf strain. Fortunately for Sherman, the injury is to the opposite leg in which he suffered a torn Achilles last season. An MRI apparently didn't reveal any major structural damage, but the 30-year-old cornerback nonetheless is expected to miss multiple games. Jimmie Ward likely will replace Sherman in the starting lineup Week 4 against the Chargers.
Sherman will have an MRI on Monday to help diagnose the specific injury to his left calf, reports Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area.
Given that he was unable to put any pressure on the leg as he exited the field, it certainly looks like Sherman will miss some time. Jimmie Ward would take over if the 30-year-old can't go Week 4 at the Chargers.
Sherman left Sunday's game versus the Chiefs with a calf injury and is questionable to return, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.
The training staff was looking at his lower left leg, which was concerning since that's the leg on which Sherman had Achilles surgery last season. The questionable designation is generous since Sherman couldn't make it to the locker room without assistance from two trainers. His loss is disruptive to the 49ers' secondary that has already allowed three touchdowns to Patrick Mahomes.
