Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman will miss the remainder of the season with a ruptured Achilles, head coach Pete Carroll told reporters after Thursday night’s 22-16 win over the Cardinals.
Sherman left Thursday night’s game against the Cardinals in the third quarter after aggravating his troublesome right Achilles injury. Sherman went down clutching his right leg after making a play in the third quarter. He missed practice during the week due to the injury.
Sherman brushed off the assistance of trainers as he walked off the field on his own power, but it appeared he was telling Seattle teammates on the sideline that he tore his Achilles.
“He’s got to get checked and all that kind of stuff, but the doctors are really clear about it that he ruptured his Achilles,” Carroll said. “There’s no coming back from that until you get surgery and all that kind of stuff.”
