Sherman was helped off the field early in the fourth quarter and has been carted into the locker room. FOX has reported that he has a right ankle injury and is doubtful to return.
Sherman and his Seahawks secondary partners have dominated Peyton Manning and the Broncos' record-breaking passing attack, limiting them to just one score through three-plus quarters of play. While Manning has completed a Super Bowl-record 33 passes, he's also had two interceptions and his Broncos trail 43-8 in the fourth quarter.
Sherman led the NFL with eight interceptions this season. He has been a controversial figure in recent weeks after his now-notrious post-game interview following the Seahawks' NFC Championship win. He made the game-winning play against the San Francisco 49ers in that game, tipping a pass into a teammate's hands for an interception in the end zone to put the Seahawks in the Super Bowl.
