Sherman signed with the Buccaneers in Week 4 and saw action in three games before sustaining a hamstring injury against the Philadelphia Eagles on October 14. He was scheduled to return to the Bucs’ Week 9 match against the New Orleans Saints on October 31st. but he couldn’t adapt.

Nov. 17 (News) – The Tampa Bay Buccaneers announced that veteran cornerback Richard Sherman was placed on injured reserve Wednesday, three days after suffering a calf injury while warming up before the game in Washington.

Last week, Buccaneers head coach Bruce Arians said Sherman was finally “good to go” after saying goodbye, but the veteran defensive back suffered a setback ahead of Sunday’s competition against the Washington Football team.

“No, he was fine. He was fine Thursday and Friday,” said Arians, noting that, in his opinion, Sherman wasn’t trying too hard to do on his return. “I thought he was going to have a hell of a ball game. He just strained his calf before the ball game.”

Sherman’s calf injury is the latest blow to the exhausted Buccaneers high school. The team was without starting cornerback Sean Murphy-Bunting, who suffered a dislocated elbow in Week 1.

The Bucs also missed their fellow starter at cornerback at Carlton Davis, who sustained a quadriceps injury in Week 4 that put him in the injured reserve.

In addition to Murphy-Bunting and Davis, cornerbacks Jamel Dean, Dee Delaney and Rashard Robinson and security guards Jordan Whitehead and Antoine Winfield Jr. have dealt with injuries this season.

In three games for the Buccaneers this season, the 33-year-old Sherman has recorded a total of 11 tackles and one fumble recovery.

The Buccaneers (6-3) play against the New York Giants (3-6) at ESPN Monday night football in this week.
