We’ll wrap this look at buzz from OTAs with the latest on a player who won’t be participating in them fully.
Richard Sherman was undoubtedly the crown jewel of the San Francisco 49ers’ free-agent signings. But fans haven’t had a chance to see him in action yet, as the 30-year-old continues to rehab the Achilles tear he suffered last November with the Seahawks.nike nfl jerseys wholesale cheap
On Thursday, he told ESPN’s Josina Anderson that he was able to jog on the field and that his Achilles feels good.
“I’ll be ready for training camp [in July],” he said, “but [the team] is going to be overly cautious either way.”
That cautiousness likely means Sherman will begin training camp on the physically unable to perform list. It’s a procedural move—if he starts camp on the PUP, he can come off at any time, but the 49ers can’t put him there after training camp gets underway.nike cheap nfl jerseys
Given the severity of Sherman’s injury and when it happened, late July is about the best-case scenario for him to get back on the field. Even a Week 1 return isn’t a sure bet, although reports regarding his recovery have been positive.
The 49ers have playoff aspirations after last year’s red-hot finish with quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo, but the long game is the smart play here. Take it slowly with Sherman’s rehab and let him learn the new defense in the hopes he can get into football shape before the games start to count.nike nfl cheap jerseys
It would be nice if he played a full complement of snaps against the Minnesota Vikings on Sept. 9 in Week 1. But having him on the field for what could be a pair of must-win December matchups against the NFC West rival Seahawks would be better.nfl nike jerseys cheap china
