Richard Sherman injured, says he’ll ‘100 percent’ play in Super Bowl

Richard Sherman’s elbow injury won’t prevent him from playing in the Super Bowl, the Pro Bowl cornerback says.

The Seattle Seahawks cornerback may have injured elbow ligaments during Sunday’s NFC championship game, but said he would "100 percent" play on Super Sunday, FOX Sports 1 NFL insider Alex Marvez reported.

Sherman was the victim of friendly fire, taking a hit to the left elbow while ushering Green Bay Packers running back James Starks out of bounds on a play during the second half. Sherman was treated for the ailment by team trainers and it was evident he was in pain.

The fourth-year cornerback kept his arm folded near his chest while playing for the remainder of the game and winced in pain when he brought a ball carrier to the ground.

Sherman made an immediate impact on the game, intercepting an Aaron Rodgers pass in the end zone on the Packers’ first drive of the game.

Richard Sherman appeared to be in pain shortly after his arm inadvertently wrenched by a teammate on a play during the second half Sunday.
