Richard Sherman Likely Tore Achilles. If So, That's The End Of His Season.

Recommended Posts



Hate to see that...he wasn't fast to begin with, and this will slow him down more...hope he can make a recovery, but if not..he's had a great career, and will have a great one off the field.

Did I miss something or did he walk off the field on his own and then around the sideline a bit? If so, that's pretty amazing with that injury. Don't remember ever seeing a guy not get carted off with an achilles injury.

Obviously no one can say that for sure.  But rest is the only answer to a lingering Achilles.  It’s very possible a few days could have made the difference.

This topic is mainly about Sherman's Achilles. I'm sure he (and the other guys) have other ailments that go unreported but bother them from game to game. The extra time between games surely helps the physical (and mental) recovery.

Years ago I heard Troy Aikman do an interview. He said in his 20's  he'd always be sore for a couple of days after the game, but was fine by game time the next week. By the time he retired he said there were a lot times he played and he had not recovered from the previous week. Tiki Barber said the same thing he was asked about his somewhat premature retirement. Barber retired after having his best statistical rushing season.

I don't see how those guys can possibly be ready to play 4 days after a Sunday game. Having to go on the road only makes it more difficult. Thursday night games should be for teams coming off of a bye week, Thanksgiving, and to start the season. Let's be honest, the quality of most of the games is subpar and they are definitely not must see events.

That's pure stupidity not leadership... long term he's hurting their team far more by not resting it.

I agree. If he could have rested for a few weeks and avoided this they would be better off.

Might not be a complete tear.  Kobe did the same thing a few years back when he went and shot free throws after partially tearing his achilles.

This. He was never the fastest CB to begin with. Not sure he can survive the probable loss of speed and athleticism that is going to come with this injury. 

Yup ... He will probably need to move over to safety

All of the players seem to hate Thursday Night Football. This could be major issue in the next collective bargaining agreement.

It seems like the players have many "major issues" going into the next CBA. The problem I see is they don't have a ton to give. CBA is at its heart a negotiation. If the players ask for something like dropping the Thursday night package, they will need to be ready to give something up. That's how those types of negotiations work.

they don't have the balls to strike and the owners know it just watch they talk a big game doing mar-mid july but when the season get closer they cave in just like they did in 2011 cause most of them can't afford a lockout.
