Seahawks teammates send prayers to Richard Sherman after suffering season-ending injury

Richard Sherman ruptured his achilles on Thursday Night and will miss the remainder of the 2017 season.

Sherman exited the game in the third quarter and did not return. He says he expects to undergo surgery after swelling in the Achilles goes down in the next few days.

Seattle won the game 22-16 over Arizona but the loss of their shutdown corner was all that was on the minds of Seahawks players as they took to social media to offer their prayers and encouragement.
