Sherman was clearly bothered by an elbow ailment in the second half of Sunday's NFC championship game against the Packers, but after undergoing an MRI on Monday, appears to be free of any serious injury. With the Super Bowl over a week away, Sherman doesn't appear to be in any danger of missing the contest.

Sherman, who was initially diagnosed with a sprained elbow during Seattle's 28-22 overtime win over the Packers on Sunday, said that he will be ready to play in the Super Bowl on Feb. 1. That said, we'd expect the cornerback's practice participation in advance of the contest to be impacted some.

Sherman (back) is probable for Sunday's game against Oakland.
Sherman's absence Thursday was evidently for rest purposes more than anything else, so he's ready to go for Sunday. Playing against a rookie quarterback (Derek Carr), this would seem to be one of his better on-paper bets to intercept a pass -- something he's yet to do in 2014.

Sherman (back) was absent from practice Thursday.
After picking off 20 passes in the first 48 regular season games of his career, Sherman has yet to notch his first of the current campaign. With two passes defended on the ledger through seven outings, he isn't inducing the opportunities that characterized his first three years in the league, which places a damper on his IDP potential. In any case, keep a close eye on his status as the weekend draws near.

Richard Sherman will be on the cover of "Madden NFL 15."
Sherman becomes the third defensive player to make the cover, joining Ray Lewis (2005) and Troy Polamalu (2010). He's also the second Seahawk to have the honor, behind Shaun Alexander (2007). The alleged Madden "Curse," which is typically a simple case of natural regression, has been debunked in recent years. Adrian Peterson had a solid campaign last year, and Calvin Johnson blew up for a 122-1,964-5 line when he was on the cover in 2012.

Seahawks signed LCB Richard Sherman to a four-year, $57.4 million contract extension through the 2018 season.
The deal includes a whopping $40 million guaranteed, blowing the $26 million guaranteed Aqib Talib got from the Broncos to set the new cornerback record out of the water. His $14.35 million annual average on the extension is also the new high-water mark among corners on multi-year deals, besting Brandon Carr's $10.02 million. Sherman has one year left on his rookie deal at $1.389 million for 2014 before the extension kicks in. He'll hit the open market as a 31-year-old. With Sherman's deal out of the way, the Browns and Cardinals can get to working on new deals for Joe Haden and Patrick Peterson, respectively.

FOX Sports' Jay Glazer reports the Seahawks and LCB Richard Sherman are "finishing up" a lucrative contract extension that will make Sherman the league's highest-paid cornerback.
Via USA Today's Tom Pelissero, the sides aren't very far apart on a "very nice deal." The Seahawks have called for an 11 AM PT press conference, which we would assume is to announce the extension. Sherman expected a deal to get done before or shortly after the draft. The former fifth-round pick out of Stanford should net $10-12 million annually with $25-plus million guaranteed.
