Richard Sherman vows to play next week despite limping off

Cornerback Richard Sherman limped off near the end of the 49ers’ 20-17 loss to the Ravens. He downplayed it afterward.

“I’ll be ready,” Sherman said at the podium. “I appreciate it. I’m an old man. Sometimes it takes a second. I might not practice every day this week, but I’ll be ready to go Sunday.”

The 49ers have a key showdown with the Saints in Week 14.

It appeared Sherman twisted a knee. He sat out a play after being attended to by athletic trainers.

He had a “significant limp going postgame,” Chris Biderman of the Sacramento Bee reports.

  1. you can criticize him for his talking – but he’s a baller on the field – i remember him playing w basically one arm during the post-season run of the Hawks SB year.

    interesting game today – not gonna criticize the Niners at all for losing by 3 on the road to the hottest team in football. and I’m a Hawks fan, so I accept claims of bias, and I also know that the weather was a big factor today – but I’ll say this, Jimmy G. looks just OK to me. A decent QB, but I’m not sure what part of his game is great, or ever will be. He’s still real early in his career, so things could change, but I think his arm talent is sort of middle of the road.

  2. Man if they lose to the Saints they will be heading in the wrong direction going into the playoffs.

    Everything was going so well until Clowney and the Seahawks ruined the perfect season…Niner fans hate the Seahawks and it is easy to understand.

  3. Seahawks are down 5-1 in the trophy case and can’t stand it. I’ll give their fans credit though for not letting their football franchise pack up and leave town like the Sonics did.

  4. Jackedupboonie and jmethane are typical seahawk clones. Your team will be in a position to be beaten by the Vikings tomorrow night, and the 49ers will embarrass you on the 29th. San Francisco was beaten by poor RP calls and a Baltimore team that holds like super glue. We will get home field advantage and destroy the Saints next weekend. 49ers are the best TEAM in football, and will be there in the end. Baltimore was lucky and was lucky to come out on top.

  5. Looking forward to playing Baltimore again in the superbowl. Maybe this time the weather will be better, and Lamar Jackson won’t be treated like a princess when he’s running out of the pocket. Those ROUGHING THE PASSER penaltys were the difference of the game, and were B.S. calls.

  6. Shout out to running back ingrham on Baltimore, you weren’t a factor today. 49ers made you look like a average back. Next time just shut your mouth and play football. You had no impact on the game.

  7. Your team will be in a position to be beaten by the Vikings tomorrow night

    I guess we agree on that point. Definately in position to lose.

    Also in position to win.

    As to the rest of your post I have to say you sound brand new. Excuses are what the losing team and it’s fans make to try and feel better psychologically and I understand your need to make them.

    However, you either win the game…or you lose the game. There are only 16. I said earlier that the NFC should be worried that the Hawks won a bunch of close games early that they might usually lose. It’s why they are 9-2 and looking to be the #1 seed instead of happy with #5.

    There are real Niner fans among you that know it and understand it’s 50/50 and there is no reason to have huge amounts of optimism and confidence. Especially with Jimmy G running the Niner offense, and Russell Wilson running the Seahawks.

    Here is to no more injuries to either side.

    Seahawk “clones”? Is that a star wars reference?

    From a strictly numbers perspective, you’d be right. But from a strategy standpoint, Ingram was the perfect decoy, hence why Jackson torched the 49ers repeatedly on the ground. Bosa bit on the handoff to Ingram nearly every time.
    Respect to the 49ers, they played a great game for the most part. Interesting note: their 2 TDs were on chunk plays’ (the 4th down heave into double coverage and the 40 yard run by Moestert) whereas the Ravens methodically moved the ball down field repeatedly against the 49ers. Kudos to the backup safety who stripped Jackson in the 3rd; otherwise they likely go up by 2 scores. Pivotal point in that game.

  9. Numbers are all that matter and decoy or not, when Ingram touched the ball he wasn’t a factor. Garappolo threw a clutch pass into double coverage chunk play or not. Fact is the 49ers had the Ravens reeling in the second half, because they couldn’t stop the run. 49ers beat themselves because on 4th and one they threw instead of ran. Had nothing to do with Garappolo, it was a bad play call plain and simple.
