Watch Richard Sherman’s Emotional Comments After Tearing His Achilles
Seattle Seahawks superstar defensive back Richard Sherman tore his Achilles tendon Thursday night against the Arizona Cardinals.
“Just got to stay positive. It’s all you can do,” Sherman said as he fought back tears while addressing the media after the game.

This is the play where Sherman suffered the injury. It appeared to be a non-contact injury.

There’s nothing fun about injuries in sports, and watching Sherman fight back tears is a tough reminder of that fact. Players go out there and leave it all out on the field.
Injuries are part of the game, but dealing with them is always difficult. Guys are out there destroying their bodies for the men next to them, and then they get hurt. You can tell from that video Sherman feels like he let his team down, despite the fact they won.
That’s the brotherhood of sports.
