Seattle coach Pete Carroll said today during his regular Monday meeting with the media that the  did not yet have updates on the health of cornerback Richard Sherman and safety Earl Thomas.

However, after Carroll’s press conference, both ESPN and NFL.com reported that Sherman had suffered a sprained elbow and would be fine to play in the game. Other sources have also said that Sherman’s availability for the game won’t be a question..

Sherman suffered a hyperextend elbow and Thomas a dislocated shoulder that he popped back in during the win over the Packers Sunday.

Carroll said only that each was being examined on Monday but results had not yet arrived.

Sherman and Thomas each said after the game they planned to play and all indications were that neither injury is considered overly serious and the team is not worried that the players won’t play.

Carroll also said that right tackle Justin Britt and safety Jeron Johnson should be able to play.

Each practiced last week and Carroll said Britt was close to being able to play on Sunday with a sore knee suffered in the playoff win over Carolina.
