San Francisco 49ers cornerback Richard Sherman posted a video of himself on Instagram to show how his recovery from a ruptured Achilles sustained in November is going.

The video, which is accompanied by the text, "Getting there...", shows him running on the team's practice field in Santa Clara.

Getting there.....

A post shared by Richard Sherman (@rsherman25) on


The 49ers hope to have Sherman ready to practice with his new teammates in time for the team's training camp, which kicks off in late-July. The cornerback hopes to return sooner. He previously targeted June (possibly earlier) for his return to the practice field.

The 49ers signed Sherman to an incentive-rich three-year deal on March 10, the day after the Seattle Seahawks released him. The seven-year veteran has been selected to four Pro Bowls and is a three-time first-team All-Pro. Sherman has registered 367 combined tackles, 32 interceptions, 99 passes defensed, a sack, and five forced fumbles over his career.
