Seattle cornerback Richard Sherman says elbow injury won’t limit him in Super Bowl

Seattle cornerback Richard Sherman said the elbow injury he suffered in Sunday’s NFC Championship game shouldn’t hinder him in any way during the Super Bowl.

“My left stiff arm might not be the greatest right now, but other than that I should be pretty decent,” Sherman said

Asked what kind of range of motion he has in the elbow, Sherman laughed and said “if I had to slap my brother I’d be able to do it.”

Sherman said he might wear a brace during practices but that he might not have to during the game on Feb. 1 against the New England Patriots.

“I think they will have me practice in one but I think I will be better by game day,” he said. “There shouldn’t be any limitations, honestly.”’

Sherman did not miss any time with the injury, playing the fourth quarter with his arm pinned against his chest.

Green Bay threw one pass his way, a six-yard pass to Jordy Nelson on what was the last play of regulation.

Sherman said he was “surprised somewhat” that the Packers did not throw his way more.

He said of making the pass on Nelson ┬áthat “it did not feel great at all. Not fun. It wasn’t a fun down for me. But I got him down and we were off the field and they kicked the field goal and we didn’t have to go back on the field. So that was a good moment for us.”
