Carroll: Seahawks still waiting for MRI results on Sherman, Thomas
RENTON – Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said the team is still awaiting the MRI results on cornerback Richard Sherman and free safety Earl Thomas, who were both injured in the NFC title game a day earlier.
Carroll said immediately after the game that the team believes Sherman and Thomas will be able to play in the Super Bowl on Feb. 1, but he had no update on the extent of their injuries or on either player’s status on Monday.
Sherman’s injury is a sprained elbow, according to Albert Breer of the NFL Network. He said after the game that he will “100 percent be able to play” in the Super Bowl. Ian Rapoport, also of the NFL Network, reported that Thomas’ injury is a separated shoulder and that he should be able to play as well.
