GLENDALE, Ariz. - Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman will miss the rest of the season after rupturing his right Achilles tendon in the Thursday night game against the Arizona Cardinals, Seahawks coach Pete Carroll confirmed.
Sherman left the game in the third quarter with what was initially described as a heel injury. After making a tackle, Sherman stayed on the ground for a long time before limping off the field.
On the NBC broadcast, Sherman appeared to mouth the words "tore my Achilles" while on the sideline.
"No coming back from that until you get surgery," Carroll said.
Sherman had been listed on the injury report with an Achilles injury for several weeks.
"He's been a bastion of consistency, competitiveness and toughness. We're going to miss the heck out of him," Carroll said of Sherman.
Seattle defeated Arizona 22-16.
