Seattle coach Pete Carroll said they would rotate a few guys in along with Sherman during practice in case it comes down later in the week that Sherman's suspension for using performance enhancing substances is upheld. Sherman appealed the suspension last Friday.
Seattle Seahawks coach Pete Carroll says he is not concerned about Sherman's preparation for Sunday's game against San Francisco despite missing two days of practice.|||||||

Sherman is at the center of what could be a massive distraction for the Seattle Seahawks as they try to hold the last playoff spot in the NFC. Yet the talkative cornerback said Wednesday that this week is the same as always, despite news leaking out of failed drug tests by Sherman and fellow starting cornerback Brandon Browner.|||||||
Sherman spoke for the first time since news first broke saying he and Browner failed tests for performance-enhancing drugs and face possible four-game suspensions. The Seahawks expect the pair to play this week at Chicago as they appeal.

According to STATS LLC, Sherman is tied for the NFL lead in passes defensed with 10.|||||||
The Seahawks cornerback said Tuesday that he was directed to remove a picture from his Twitter account that showed Sherman talking to Patriots quarterback Tom Brady after Seattle's 24-23 win that included an added message"U Mad Bro?" But when asked if he regretted any of the attention that has come his way, Sherman said, "I don't regret anything about the situation. It is what it is."
