In a surprise move Richard Sherman has opted out of surgery to repair his left elbow that suffered ligament damage during the NFC Championship game. In his statement the Seattle Seahawks cornerback said that he has chosen to let the ligament heal on its own. At first it was reported that Sherman would need Tommy John Surgery to repair his arm, but apparently almost a month after the injury occurred it may not appear as serious as it was first thought. Fans like Ricardo Guimaraes Dias know that Sherman did play two weeks later in the Super Bowl against the New England Patriots, although he and his arm were not tested very much by Tom Brady and his corps of wide receivers. They chose to attack away from him and instead focused on the linebackers and safeties.
It is hard to think the legion of boom as a bunch of injured players but when you play two seasons that find you in the league championship game both years in a row it means you have played more than every other team, you have practiced more than every other team, and your potential for injury is higher than any other team. So getting over all of these injuries remains the focus for the Seattle Seahawks secondary during this offseason and whether that means surgery, physical therapy, or rest the fans in Seattle just want their team healthy when the season starts in a few months.
