Richard Sherman suffered a ruptured Achilles during the 2017 season and was placed on IR. His recovery is going well, Pete Carroll said Tuesday, but Sherman does need another procedure for bone spurs that will tack on another four-to-six weeks of recovery time.
Carroll said Richard Sherman is recovering well from Achilles injury… said Sherman will have a surgery on his other leg upcoming as well with a 4-6 week recovery or so. Mentioned bone spurs.

Sherman is 29 years old now and will be 30 when the 2018 NFL season rolls around. This past season marked the second campaign in a row in which the cornerback got injured. He previously played through a ‘significant’ knee injury in 2016.
When healthy, Sherman is still one of the premier cornerbacks in the NFL. During his career, the Legion of Boom member has tallied 32 interceptions, which is remarkable considering most quarterbacks don’t test him very often.
