FOXBOROUGH, MASSACHUSETTS - OCTOBER 03: Richard Sherman #5 of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers looks on against the New England Patriots during the second quarter in the game at Gillette Stadium on October 03, 2021 in Foxborough, Massachusetts.

Richard Sherman won’t go on injured reserve. However, his hamstring strain could force him to miss up to 3 games.

Sherman injured his hamstring on the first defensive series in the game with Philly last week. However, the Bucs have not put him on injured reserves because this will cause him to be out for a guaranteed to be out 3 weeks. Right now, the Bucs are hopeful that he will return for the Nov. 14 game against Washington.

In his podcast, Sherman had this to say: “Man, man, man. They got me, I thought I could do it, and I was doing it. I was really doing it. I was out there. Three days of practice, bang! Got it done. Mission complete. Another week of practice, bang! Got it done. Mission complete. Three days after, didn’t get it done. My old body said, “Yeah, that’s enough.’ Sat me down.

Sherman was not in the offseason program or training camp with any team before signing with the Bucs. However, he practiced with the team before playing in the Bucs’ win at New England. Sherman was attempting to play three games in 12 days when the injury occurred.

This isn’t the only injury plaguing the Buccaneer’s defense right now, as they are missing Carlton Davis and Sean Murphy-Bunting, who are on injured reserve.
