Richard Sherman Happy To Avoid Surgery; Responds to Cromartie

470144162

Seahawks All-Pro cornerback Richard Sherman said he was happy to avoid surgery on his injured elbow in the offseason since the procedure likely would have left him sidelined for up to nine months, Tim Booth of the Associated Press reports.

Sherman spoke after Seattle wrapped up its organized team activity on Tuesday. Sherman initially believed he would need Tommy John surgery on his left elbow after being injured in the NFC Championship game. But after speaking with other players and consulting with doctors, he decided against the surgery for now.

Sherman said it could be something that’ll need to be surgically repaired in the future if it causes problems.

Sherman also responded to recent comments from Antonio Cromartie criticizing Sherman for only playing one side of the field. Sherman called Cromartie’s comments “unfortunate.”
