RENTON, Wash. (AP) All-Pro cornerback Richard Sherman still expects to play in the Super Bowl despite injuring his left elbow in the NFC championship game.

''That's my story and I'm sticking to it,'' Sherman said Wednesday.

Sherman said his elbow is ''better than it was'' during the fourth quarter of Seattle's 28-22 overtime win over Green Bay.

Sherman was injured on the first play of the fourth quarter when he appeared to hyperextend his elbow while getting sandwiched between Green Bay's James Starks and teammate Kam Chancellor.

Sherman played the rest of the game with his left arm pinned against his chest.

Asked about his range of motion with his arm, Sherman joked that if he had to ''slap my brother, I would be able to do it.''
