Report: Seahawks' Richard Sherman may not require elbow surgery

Tuesday February 10th, 2015

Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman will not undergo surgery on his elbow at this time, reports Fox Sports' Mike Garafolo.

Garafolo also reports that Sherman is "feeling better," so rather than opt for surgery now the team will monitor and rehab him.

Sherman injured his elbow during Seattle's NFC Championship Game victory over the Green Bay Packers but remained in the game. He then played in Super Bowl XLIX hurt as well.

Last week, the Seahawks announced that Sherman would require Tommy John surgery on his left elbow this offseason. But head coach Pete Carroll later told 710 ESPN Seattle that he "might have been misled" when he said that, and that Sherman might not need the surgery after all.

Sherman finished the 2014 season with 67 tackles, four interceptions and 11 passes defended.
