49ers’ Richard Sherman says he will be ready for Saints following injury vs. Ravens

Dec 1, 2019 at 1:57 PM--


San Francisco 49ers cornerback Richard Sherman was walking around with a pretty significant limp following Sunday's 20-17 loss to the Baltimore Ravens. He left the field in the fourth quarter but was able to return to the game.

Sherman suffered a right knee sprain, which left him in some pain and forced him to exit the game briefly.

"My knee kind of gave out on me," Sherman told reporters. "A lot of pain. I just tried to get off the field, and not have us waste a time out."

The 49ers will likely be cautious with Sherman during the upcoming week of practices, but the cornerback plans to be ready for next weekend's NFC showdown against the Saints in New Orleans. Both teams are 10-2.

"I'll be ready," Sherman told reporters. "I'm an old man. Sometimes it takes a second. I may not practice every day this week, but I'll be ready to go Sunday."

The Arizona Cardinals went into Levi's Stadium on Sunday and upset the defending NFC champion San Francisco 49ers 24-20. It was not the start Richard Sherman and his team wanted for what they hoped would be a bounce-back season in response to February's Super Bowl defeat. Sherman was asked after the game what the 49ers can take away from the loss, and what it might mean for the team moving forward. "It just comes down to executing down the stretch," Sherman responded. "Any time you get to play, we got to knock the rust off some things, some communication things we have to do better, but I think overall, we feel good about where we are. "They played a good game.
