Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll confirmed that cornerback Richard Sherman ruptured his Achilles against the Arizona Cardinals on Thursday Night Football. Sherman knew almost immediately that he tore his Achilles — and even told his teammates immediately that he was done.

The team called it a ‘heel’ injury, before Carroll officially changed it. Sherman will be done for the rest of the season.

This is the second straight year that the Seahawks lost a key part of their defense for the season. Last season, Earl Thomas, who considered retirement after being injured, missed the final part of the season.

Thomas did not play in the game on Thursday night, as he was nursing a hamstring injury. Sherman did not practice this week while nursing the injury that has been bothering him for quite some time.

Sherman said he was going to continue to play with the injury, before it popped. Now, he’ll have to wait until the swollen goes down before he could get it fixed.

He said that he suffered the injury against the Los Angeles Rams. Late in the third quarter, while trying to defend Cardinals wide receiver John Brown, his Achilles went.

Almost immediately, he was grabbing at his ankle following the collision and was limping on the sideline. Sherman was then able to walk off the field, but had to use crutches to get around in the locker room.

This season, Sherman, one of the best cornerbacks in the league, had 31 tackles with two interceptions. The Cardinals had just a 130 passing yards prior to the injury.
