Sherman (calf) was placed on injured reserve Wednesday.
Sherman won't be eligible to return from IR until the 49ers' Week 5 game against the Dolphins as a result of the transaction. Fellow cornerback Dontae Johnson was promoted from the practice squad to the 49ers' active roster in a corresponding move.
The 49ers are expected to place Sherman on injured reserve Wednesday due to a calf strain, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
Assuming the transaction is made official, the cornerback will miss at least three weeks, which could afford him enough time to return to the lineup when he's eligible. In Sherman's anticipated absence, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area suggests that Emmanuel Moseley and Ahkello Witherspoon will likely start at cornerback for the 49ers.
The 49ers could place Sherman on injured reserve Wednesday due to an unspecified injury, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.
The 49ers haven't commented on the nature of Sherman's injury, but Garafolo suggests the cornerback could be dealing with a leg issue. As Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chroniclenotes, Sherman played 78 of the 49ers' 82 defensive snaps in the Week 1 loss to the Cardinals, and his name didn't come up Monday when coach Kyle Shanahan discussed the team's injuries. If the 49ers do end up placing the cornerback on IR, he would miss at least three weeks.
Sherman recorded 61 tackles (48 solo), 11 passes defended, three interceptions and a touchdown in 15 games during the 2019 regular season.
Sherman wasn't the same player his first year in San Francisco coming off a torn Achilles tendon, but an additional year of recovery had the corner looking closer to the shutdown version we became accustomed to during his days in Seattle. The 31-year-old suffered a few minor injuries along the way, but he was generally healthy and was only forced to miss one game (including the playoffs). Assuming good health, Sherman will look to turn in another elite season in coverage behind the 49ers' ferocious pass rush.
Sherman (hamstring) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.
Sherman said Wednesday that he plans to suit up against the Rams on Saturday, per Wagoner. Barring any setbacks, the 31-year-old stands to draw his usual start at cornerback Week 16.
Sherman (hamstring) was listed as a full practice participant after the 49ers' walk-through Tuesday, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.
It wasn't a regular practice, but the team apparently feels confident enough in Sherman's health to list him as a full participant. Assuming the 31-year-old doesn't have a setback, he'll be back out there against the Rams on Saturday.
Sherman (hamstring) has been ruled out of Sunday's game against the Falcons, Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
While Sherman won't play Sunday, Cam Inman of The San Jose Mercury News reports that coach Kyle Shanahan denied rumors that the 31-year-old had been ruled out for the year. With two divisional matchups to close out the regular season, it makes sense the 49ers would take the cautious approach with their star corner in a winnable home game against Atlanta.
Sherman (hamstring) did not practice Thursday, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.
Sherman has now missed two consecutive practices while nursing a Grade 2 hamstring strain. The veteran said he managed to run in the range of "19 miles per hour, 20 miles per hour" on a treadmill Thursday, per Matt Barrows of The Athletic, but on-field cutting could prove a more difficult challenge to surmount that straight-ahead running. He'll have one more chance to upgrade his level of practice activity ahead of Sunday's tilt against the Falcons.
Sherman (hamstring) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Cam Inman of the San Jose Mercury News reports.
Sherman, who's dealing with a Grade 2 hamstring strain, would likely need to log at least a limited practice at some point throughout the week in order to suit up for Sunday's tilt against the Falcons. If he remains sidelined, however, Emmanuel Moseley and K'Waun Williams (concussion) could see additional reps across from Ahkello Witherspoon.
Sherman suffered a Grade 2 hamstring strain during Sunday's win over the Saints, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.
Sherman underwent an MRI on his hamstring Monday, the results of which diagnosed a Grade 2 strain. Such injuries typically carry a recovery timetable of at least one week, making Sherman's chances of suiting up against the Falcons in Week 15 uncertain, but it's worth keeping in mind that the veteran cornerback has proven a consistent ability to tough out injuries in his career. With K'Waun Williams in the concussion protocol, Emmanuel Moseley and D.J. Reed could be in for expanded roles on defense if Sherman is forced to miss any time.
Sherman (hamstring) underwent an MRI on Monday and could be in danger of missing Week 15's matchup against the Falcons, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.
Sherman intends to do all he can in practice this week to suit up Sunday against the Falcons, but he wasn't able to retake the field during Week 14's win over the Saints. The veteran cornerback has shown an ability to play through injuries in his career, but the tricky nature of hamstring issues means he can't be considered a lock to retake the field Week 15. Count on Wednesday's first practice report of the week to shed some light on Sherman's status.
Sherman exited Sunday's win over the Saints with a hamstring injury, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.
Sherman battled through a knee injury during last week's loss to the Ravens, but he admitted he couldn't tough out this issue. "I definitely couldn't go back in this one," Sherman said. "We've got a long week ahead of us to try to get it together. Like I always say, don't count me out until I'm out." Sherman's words allude to his ability to play through injuries throughout his career, but hamstring injuries are tricky, so it's worth keeping an eye on his practice status ahead of Week 15's matchup against the Falcons.
Sherman (knee) does not have an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Saints, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.
Sherman picked up a sprained knee during Week 13's game against the Ravens, but he appears to already be operating without limitations. The veteran corner is set to draw his usual start in New Orleans on Sunday.
Sherman (knee) was limited in Wednesday's practice, Jennifer Lee Chan of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Sherman suffered a sprained knee during Week 13's loss to the Ravens, but following the contest, he said he'd be ready for Sunday's matchup against the Saints. The veteran corner's ability to get on the practice field supports that notion, but he'll need to finish the week without a setback first.
Sherman is considered day-to-day after suffering a knee sprain during Sunday's loss to the Ravens, Jennifer Lee Chan of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Sherman was limping after the contest and is liable to sit out some practice this week, but said he still expects to play next Sunday at New Orleans. The veteran cornerback exited the loss to Baltimore multiple times due to the injury but was still able to finish the game. Sherman seems headed towards a questionable tag for Week 14, but there should be a better idea of his potential availability once the 49ers start practicing later in the week.
Sherman (leg) walked with a limp following Sunday's 20-17 loss to the Ravens but said he expects to play Week 14 against the Saints, Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Sherman also relayed that he probably won't practice every day this week to help aid the recovery. The veteran cornerback left the game a couple times and even collapsed on the sidelines, but he was able to finish. It's worth monitoring Sherman's status as the week progresses, as it'd be a major loss if he's unable to play since Sherman has allowed a 50.8 passer rating when targeted this season.
Sherman generated four solo tackles and an interception in Sunday's 51-13 win over the Titans.
Kyle Allen's pass essentially sought out Sherman in coverage, but the turnover counts the same. Sherman now has three interceptions through the first seven games, which is his highest total since his 2016 campaign with the Seahawks.
Sherman suffered a stinger during Sunday's game against the Rams but wasn't listed on Wednesday's injury report.
Sherman will be good to go for Sunday's game against the Redskins. Depending on who the Redskins start under center -- Case Keenum (foot) sat out of Wednesday's practice -- Sherman could have high interception potential since Dwayne Haskins threw three picks in barely over a half of a game.
Sherman suffered a shoulder stinger in Sunday's victory over the Rams, but was able to return to the game, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.
It remains to be seen if the injury will have any long-term effect on Sherman, but his return to action provides reason to believe he will avoid missing any time. Sherman racked up four tackles (three solo) in Sunday's win.
Sherman generated four solo tackles, two pass breakups and an interception in Monday's 31-3 win over the Browns.
Sherman fired up the game by snagging an interception on the Browns' second offensive drive, and he was impressive in coverage all night. That's been the 31-year-old's theme all season, though, as he's allowed just a 35.6 passer rating when targeted by opposing quarterbacks this season. Sherman will need to be on top of his game again in Week 6 for a divisional matchup against the Rams, as Jared Goff has thrown for 912 yards over the last two weeks.
