The Tampa Bay Buccaneers might be without Richard Sherman for some time due to injury.
Throughout pregame warmups vs. the Washington Football Team, Tampa Bay Buccaneers defensive back Richard Sherman suffered a calf strain that might keep him out for a while.
After a turbulent offseason for him personally, Sherman signed with the protecting Super Bowl champs to help round out their defensive backfield. So far, he has just appeared in three games for the Buccaneers. He last played in a game for them over a month ago. Now with a calf stress keeping him out of Week 10s action and beyond, how long before he hangs up the spikes?
The five-time Pro Bowler and three-time First-Team All-Pro will turn 34-years-old in March.

Ultimately, the Buccaneers must remain one of the very best teams in the NFC this season, no matter just how much Sherman plays for them. Though they play in a surprisingly competitive NFC South, anything except a division crown will be seen as a massive failure for this team. From there, Tampa Bay probably requires to be one of the last 4 teams remaining in the NFL playoffs.
Losing a veteran presence in the defensive backfield does injure the Buccaneers, however they have an otherwise loaded lineup to likely offset Shermans extended lack.

Richard Sherman injury update: Buccaneers DB to miss out on time with calf pressure.
While the bright side is this was his calf he hurt rather than his Achilles, as soon as again, this is a foot injury for a defensive gamer who requires his feet to help him have remaining power in the NFL. Sherman built out a hall-of-fame career by being ultra-physical at the line of scrimmage. Though his strength and power helped set him apart, his depreciating foot speed has actually become a concern.
