Seahawks CB Richard Sherman (Achilles) mentioned May or June as a possible timetable for his recovery.
Sherman underwent surgery to repair a ruptured Achilles on Wednesday. The operation was performed by Dr. Bob Anderson in Green Bay. If Sherman's timeline is correct, he would likely miss most if not all of OTAs before hopefully returning for the start of training camp. Monday night will end Sherman's streak of 105 consecutive games played. Nov 16 - 1:10 PM

Seahawks CB Richard Sherman has been diagnosed with a ruptured right Achilles' tendon, and is done for the season.

What Sherman seemed to know immediately was quickly confirmed by the Seahawks' team doctors. Sherman said after the game he had been playing through the injury nearly all year, and had been trying to avoid hard cuts. Football players are warriors. Even though Sherman hadn't appeared quite in top form this season, he was still operating as one of the league's best corners. It's a brutal, brutal blow for the Seahawks, who will now move forward with Shaq Griffin, Justin Coleman and Jeremy Lane as their top three corners. Turning 30 next spring, Sherman will also be headed into the final year of his contract.

Richard Sherman suffered a heel injury in Thursday's game against the Cardinals, and is doubtful to return.

The Seahawks announced it as Sherman's heel, but the corner himself was seen mouthing multiple times on the sideline that it was his Achilles'. It certainly looked that way on the field. Sherman was held out of practice this week with an Achilles' issue. If that's indeed what it is, it would be a bitter pill to swallow for a player who has been critical of the player-safety issues presented by Thursday Night Football. It would also be a hammer blow for the Seahawks' defense. Despite a minor drop off in his play, 29-year-old Sherman has remained one of the league's best corners.
Nov 9 - 10:56 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Richard Sherman (Achilles) will play Week 10 against the Cardinals.

Sherman is ready to roll for Thursday Night Football despite not practicing this week. He hasn't missed a game since entering the league as a fifth-round pick in 2011.
Nov 9 - 2:08 PM

Richard Sherman (Achilles) didn't practice on Wednesday.

This appears to be a new injury as Sherman had previously been listed with a hamstring issue. Sherman hasn't practiced much this season, though he's yet to miss a game or even a defensive snap (204-of-204). In fact, he's never missed a game since entering the league as a fifth-round pick in 2011.
Sep 27 - 7:36 PM

Richard Sherman (hamstring) is active for Week 2 against the 49ers.

Despite sitting out Wednesday and Thursday, this was always the expectation. Sherman being active is a downgrade for Pierre Garcon. Seattle declared OLB Terence Garvin (shoulder), Eddie Lacy, RB J.D. McKissic, OG Jordan Roos, OG Oday Aboushi, FS Tedric Thompson, and OT Isaiah Battle inactive for Week 2.

Seahawks LCB Richard Sherman (hamstring) is expected to play Week 2 against the 49ers.

Coach Pete Carroll said as much on Friday, so this is not a surprise despite Sherman sitting out Wednesday and Thursday. Sherman's presence is a big downgrade for Pierre Garcon, although the veteran receiver should still be fed targets.
Sep 17 - 8:50 AM

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll expects LCB Richard Sherman (questionable, hamstring) to play in Week 2 against the 49ers.

Sherman missed practice early this week, but his status was never in doubt. His presence is a downgrade to Pierre Garcon's matchup. The Seahawks plan to start Michael Wilhoite with OLB Terence Garvin (doubtful, shoulder) sidelined.
Sep 15 - 5:17 PM

Richard Sherman (hamstring) remained sidelined at Thursday's practice.

Sherman rarely misses practice for any reason, so it's certainly notable. Sherman has never missed a game since entering the league in 2011, but perhaps the 'Hawks will decide to hold him out for what should be an easy victory over the 49ers.
Sep 14 - 7:54 PM

Seahawks LCB Richard Sherman (hamstring) didn't practice on Wednesday.

Sherman played all 82 snaps in Sunday's loss to Green Bay, so this is probably just a maintenance day. He's appeared in 97 consecutive games and should extend that streak to 98 Sunday against the Niners.
Sep 13 - 7:38 PM

Seahawks LCB Richard Sherman (thigh) is questionable for Week 1 against the Packers.

He's listed with a thigh injury but practiced fully on Thursday and has never missed a game in his career. If for some reason Sherman can't get the green light for Sunday, it would obviously be an upgrade for the fantasy outlooks of Jordy Nelson and Davante Adams.
Sep 8 - 4:55 PM

Seahawks LCB Richard Sherman denies having requesting a trade.

Sherman also said he was "not upset" the Seahawks allegedly considered trading him, adding reports of locker-room division in Seattle are "overblown." Sherman took ownership for last year's repeated sideline rants, admitting he "might have gone over the top." Sherman has two years left on his contract.
Jun 14 - 8:24 PM

ESPN's Seth Wickersham reports there are still major tensions between Richard Sherman and coach Pete Carroll.

Sherman believes the Seahawks should have won multiple Super Bowls by now, and is concerned about the team's chemistry. In particular, Sherman has been upset at Carroll's unwillingness to critique Russell Wilson and the offense while the defense is forced to play at near perfection. Sherman has been vocal since the Seahawks lost the Super Bowl, including telling friends that he imagined playing for the Cowboys or Patriots with Marshawn Lynch. Despite the long feud and trade rumors, Sherman remains on the Seahawks and will remain a leader on one of the league's best defenses.

Speaking Thursday, Seahawks coach Pete Carroll classified the Richard Sherman trade talks as dead.

The draft was always the de facto deadline. Carroll did leave the door slightly ajar for a too-good-to-be-true offer down the road. "But people can always call you, and there were some people, there were some conversations," Carroll said. "I don't think they're going to change. I don't think anybody's going to offer us anything that would make it worthwhile because there's no draft involved and all that kind of stuff." 2017 will be Sherman's seventh year in Seattle.
May 4 - 1:39 PM

Richard Sherman reported to Seahawks voluntary workouts on Monday.

Per GM John Schneider, Sherman also had a "great meeting" with coach Pete Carroll last week. Sherman was absent from the first week of voluntary workouts, but it didn't appear related to bad blood over trade talks. Both sides have been frank about a potential deal, at times appearing to welcome the idea, but it appears Sherman will remain in Seattle for 2017. Schneider said the organization has "kind of moved past" the possibility.
