Disappointed. Going to bounce back soon. Asked a lot from my body in a short amount of time. Will be back better

Former Seattle Seahawks and San Francisco 49ers man, Richard Sherman, took to Twitter to express his dismay over the latest injury. There’s no timeline to his return but coach Arians claimed they will not sign any new players on their secondary.
“We’ll just keep playing with the guys we’ve got, and see what happens. See how long of an injury it is. And next man up.
“We really need this rest and hopefully we’ll see who we can get back, if anybody. But the ones who have been playing, they definitely need a timeout,” Arians said via ESPN.
