EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (CBSNewYork/AP) — Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman was taken to the locker room on a cart after appearing to hurt his right leg in the fourth quarter of Sunday’s Super Bowl.
Sherman was hit by teammate Earl Thomas as the pair attempted to break up a pass early in the fourth quarter. Sherman had been down earlier in the second half after appearing to get his legs tangled on a block, but he ran off the field after being looked at by trainers.
The second time, trainers again looked at his right leg and he limped off the field with his arm around teammate Walter Thurmond.
The team said Sherman was doubtful to return.
