CB - SF
This Week Outlook
49ers CB Richard Sherman doesn't expect to resign with San Francisco this offseason.
Sherman says this thought is based on the salary cap and conversations he has had with the organization. The 32-year-old has been more than serviceable when healthy this year, and he surely wouldn't struggle to find a new home if the 49ers opt not to bring him back.
NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is reporting 49ers CB Richard Sherman (calf) is "set" to return to the field in Week 12.
Sherman has not played since suffering his calf injury in the season opener. He was activated from the injured reserve list this week and is in line to play against the Rams. The 49ers could use Sherman as their once smothering defense has taken steps back this season due to their multitude of injuries.
The 49ers activated Richard Sherman (calf) off injured reserve.
Sherman is questionable to play in Week 12 against the Rams, but it appears as if he has a chance to return. RBs Raheem Mostert (ankle) and Jeff Wilson (ankle) were both activated off IR as well on Saturday. The 49ers could finally be getting a little healthier for their big divisional matchup with Los Angeles.
The San Francisco 49ers will activate DB Richard Sherman for Week 12.
HC Kyle Shanahan said that Sherman is day-to-day, but the fact that he will be activated is a positive sign that he's trending up for Sunday's game vs. the Rams. The former All-Pro hasn't seen the field since Week 1 and is instrumental in the Niners' secondary.
49ers' veteran CB Richard Sherman (calf) has been designated to return from IR and has a 21-day window to be activated to the 53-man roster, per Field Yates.
Sherman has been on IR since suffering a calf strain against the Cardinals in Week 1. His return should strengthen and energize a San Francisco defense that has already surrendered 16 passing touchdowns in nine regular season games. In comparison, the Niners defense gave up just 23 passing touchdowns in 16 regular season games in 2019.
