Did Sherman hurt his Achilles?

Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman missed a lot of practice this week with a sore Achilles. That said, he played Thursday night against the Arizona Carindals

And that said, he left tonight’s game with what they are calling a “heel injury.” That’s all well and good, but that’s not what a lip reader could have figured out from the situation.

Sherman could be seen on the sideline several times mouthing that it was his Achilles. He limped off the field, so my non-doctor ass is going to assume that he didn’t tear the damn thing. I don’t know that, but usually when you tear an Achilles cart is coming out.

He is not likely to return to tonight’s game and I’m not sure how long this injury could sideline him. But, if he’s out for any significant period of time that would be a huge blow to this defense.

UPDATE: Carroll said he ruptured his Achilles.
