Buccaneers cornerback Richard Sherman doesn’t sound overly concerned about the hamstring injury that forced him out of Thursday night’s game against the Eagles.

Sherman said on his podcast that he still needs to get an MRI on the hamstring but believes it’s “nothing too serious,” according to Joey Knight of the Tampa Bay Times.

Sherman said he expects to be sidelined “at most a couple of weeks.”

The 33-year-old Sherman was out of the league all offseason but signed with the Buccaneers in late September and promptly started three games over an 11-day period. That may have been more than his hamstring could handle, but Sherman believes he’ll be back on the field soon enough.

  1. the other 31 teams, or at least anyone on TB’s schedule this year, are lamenting this injury. The second he stepped onto the field to ‘bolster’ the Bucs secondary, every OC in the league began scheming plays to exploit him, as he is WAY past being even a middling DB.
    Hang up your cleats bro, and join the real world. Its over

  2. So he’s a medical doctor now? Wow. Truly a renaissance man! (smh). Laurent Duvernay-Tardif (the KC tackle who is a medical doctor and took a year off to help with Covid in his native Canada) must be jealous

    Do you really think an athlete doesn’t know when they are sore and need recovery time? I’m sure you think that you need to be a doctor to know when your head hurts that an aspirin could help.

  4. Hamstring injuries happen all the time to guys like Sherman, who return to the game too soon only to find out their legs are not game-ready.

  5. The game is better when he is healthy and at the top of his game… Unfortunately for Sherm’, that was in 2013.

  6. Smart. Load management is the way to go for veterans. Gronk was Sherman’s medical advisor. Brady is an exception because he’s not human.

  7. Great pick-up for the Bucs…from the couch straight to the field usually doesn’t go well.

  8. I’ve been laying around for months & now I think I will go do a bunch of stop & go sprinting & maximum exertion activities versus guys that are 10 years younger than me…what could possibly go wrong? ….
