Richard Sherman injury: Seahawks CB carted to locker room late in Super Bowl

Jamie Squire

Sherman is doubtful to return with an ankle injury.

It may not matter at this point, but the Seattle Seahawks have lost their top defensive player, Richard Sherman, to an injury late in Super Bowl XLVIII.

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.
