Richard Sherman calls 49ers-Dolphins a ‘perfect storm of bad things,’ doesn’t mention recovery time from injury

Oct 14, 2020 at 7:29 AM--


Cornerback Richard Sherman has been sidelined with a calf injury since Week 1. He had to watch last Sunday as his team, the San Francisco 49ers, were shockingly routed at home by the Miami Dolphins.

One of the criticisms this week against the 49ers coaching staff is the decision to start Brian Allen, who was activated from the practice squad a day before taking the field.

"It was just a perfect storm of things going bad," Sherman said on The Cris Collinsworth Podcast, which he co-hosts. "It's unfortunate. Brian Allen was kind of put in a tough position, didn't get enough days (of) practice, didn't get enough reps to be adequately prepared, unfortunately. That's no fault of his own. There were some situations going on that prevented that."

Another criticism was the decision to play Jimmy Garoppolo, who was obviously still affected by the high-ankle sprain he sustained during Week 2 and forced the quarterback to miss two games.

"And then, obviously, Jimmy trying to fight through an injury," Sherman continued. "It's always tough to get back. Miami did a great job putting pressure on him and hitting him every chance they got. It's just the perfect storm of bad things.

"Obviously, [Dolphins quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick] is hot and cold, but you've got good Fitz that day, and he played well. He found a matchup he liked and went after it.

"So, it's one of those things. It happens in the league. It's just unfortunate. It was the perfect storm of events. But I look forward to seeing Jimmy and those guys bounce back, and obviously if we can get healthier in the secondary. Emmanuel Moseley is coming back this week, so hopefully, that will shore things up."

What is interesting is that Sherman doesn't mention his own name while discussing the secondary getting healthier. Head coach Kyle Shanahan said last week that he hoped to get back Sherman this week in time to play against the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday night.

On Monday, Shanahan altered that timeline while not sounding too optimistic about a quick return for the veteran cornerback.

"Sherm, we were hoping to get him back this week," Shanahan said. "Some setbacks last week, and the healing hasn't gone the way we were hoping for. I know we're going to try a few different procedures this week, but I'm not counting on him this week. We'll see how that goes with the new stuff we're going to try."

Shanahan added that the "procedures" were not surgical and were shots to help reduce the inflammation.

Matt Barrows of The Athletic reported on Tuesday that San Francisco 49ers cornerback K'Waun Williams is eyeing a Week 8 return against the Seattle Seahawks from his ACL sprain. Could Richard Sherman return around the same time and give the defensive backfield a boost? It sounds like Sherman is getting closer to returning. Head coach Kyle Shanahan remains hopeful that his veteran cornerback can get back on the practice field soon after sitting on injured reserve with a calf injury since September 16. Sherman recently received injections to help reduce the inflammation and speed up his recovery after a small setback. "I'm doing a lot better," Sherman said this week on the Cris Collinsworth Podcast, which he co-hosts. "It's coming along. It's starting to

San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan spoke with reporters before today's practice and shared some good news regarding Trent Williams. The veteran offensive tackle suffered an ankle injury on Sunday night against the Los Angeles Rams and will not practice today. No, that's not the good news. The good news is that tests showed that the injury was not as serious as it could have been, with some fearing a high-ankle sprain or worse. "[The scans] showed that nothing was broken and that it wasn't a high-ankle (sprain)," Shanahan said. "So, that was good news, but (he's) still in too much pain to practice today, and I know he'll be questionable throughout the week. Hopefully, it will get better each day, but it's not there yet." Shanahan isn't
