Niners CB Richard Sherman (calf) is inactive for today's game against the Rams. That has no impact on IDP owners, and no one should have been considering using the San Francisco team D. The biggest effect here is that the Niners secondary now presents no real challenges for any L.A. wideouts. Josh Reynolds -- who joins the lineup with Cooper Kupp out -- gets an upside boost with Sherman's absence.

A Monday MRI revealed a Grade 2 strain to the right hamstring of 49ers CB Richard Sherman, NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports. That puts Sherman in doubt for Sunday's game against the Falcons and perhaps beyond. We'll see how he progresses, but make sure you have another option for the CB slot in your IDP lineup.

Seahawks CB Richard Sherman ruptured his right Achilles' tendon in Thursday night's win over the Cardinals and will miss the rest of the season. That damages a Seattle defense that has already showed cracks at points this season. It improves the individual matchups for WRs in the weeks to come, starting with Julio Jones in Week 11.

Seahawks CB Richard Sherman and S Earl Thomas were both injured in Sunday's NFC Championship victory over the Packers.  Sherman has been diagnosed with a sprained left elbow, while Thomas dislocated his shoulder.  Both guys played through their injuries on Sunday and are fully expected to be ready for the Super Bowl in a couple weeks.  The question is just how effective they'll be.  Sherman and Thomas both ranked among the top 5 at their respective positions in Pro Football Focus' grades. 

Seahawks CB Richard Sherman (foot) sat out Wednesday's practice.  HC Pete Carroll has said nothing about the severity of the injury, but Sherman didn't miss a single snap of Sunday's loss at San Francisco.  We'll see how his participation proceeds.  Carroll did say Wednesday that he doesn't expect CB Brandon Browner (groin) to play Sunday at the Giants.

Seahawks CB Richard Sherman revealed that he won his appeal of a 4-game suspension for performance-enhancing drugs.  Sherman successfully argued that his urine sample was contaminated.  He'll play against the Rams this weekend.  And Seattle will have both Sherman and CB Brandon Browner for the postseason.
