Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman and free safety Earl Thomas both played through injuries in the second half of the NFC title game on Sunday. Those injuries, according to coach Pete Carroll, shouldn’t keep either player out of the Super Bowl on Feb. 1.
“We think they’ll be fine,” Carroll said. “Luckily, we have a couple weeks.”
Thomas injured his left shoulder in the first half while making a tackle. He went to the locker room for evaluation before returning.
Sherman played the fourth quarter and overtime in obvious pain after injuring his elbow. The injury seemed to occur when he and strong safety Kam Chancellor forced Packers running back James Stark out of bounds on a 32-yard run at the beginning of the fourth quarter.
Right guard J.R. Sweezy limped off the field at one point, but Carroll said he should be fine as well.
