Seahawks CB Richard Sherman Out for Year With Ruptured Achilles

Seahawks CB Richard Sherman ruptured his Achilles against the Cardinals in the third quarter in Thursday's win over the Arizona Cardinals.

Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman ruptured his Achilles in Thursday's win over the Cardinals and is done for the season.

After getting tangled with receiver John Brown in the third quarter, Sherman was grabbing at his leg and then limped off the field. Once on the sidelines, he looked angry as he walked back and forth.

On the sidelines, he appeared to say "tore my Achilles, I am out for the year."

He stayed on the sidelines for the rest of the game, limping off at the end. Before walking off, Sherman hugged Cardinals players, saying a prayer with Patrick Peterson.

"He's one of the best teammates you can ask for, one of the hardest working guys," quarterback Russell Wilson said after the game. "It's unfortunate. You can't replace RichardSherman, you just can't do it"

Sherman was listed as questionable before the game due to an Achilles injury that meant limited practice this week.

In eight games this year, Sherman had 31 combined tackles, 22 total tackles and two interceptions.
