Seattle Seahawks Richard Sherman played through the Super Bowl with torn ligaments in his elbow and will need offseason Tommy John surgery. Seahawks head coach Pete Carol confirmed the news on Monday, according to ESPN:

"From what I understand, that is accurate," Carroll said of Sherman. "His will to play through this never wavered."

The surgery to repair the injury was named after former Major League Baseball pitcher Tommy John, one of the first athletes to have the procedure. Normal recovery time for a pitcher is nine to 12 months, but Carroll doesn't see that happening for Sherman.

"I really don't think so as long as Sherm doesn't want to become a late-inning reliever," Carroll said. "There's plenty of time to work all that out, and I don't think there's any concern."
Carol confirmed that d safeties Kam Chancellor and Earl Thomas may need medical procedures to repair injuries as well.
