All-Pro cornerback Richard Sherman on Sunday went on Twitter following Saturday’s preseason loss to the Texans to voice his displeasure over the new rule that prohibits would-be tacklers from leading with their helmets.

Sherman said trying to take down a ball carrier without leading with the head is “impossible.”

To all those ppl including those who made the rule. I want a video of YOU running full speed and being lead by anything but your head while also attempting to bring down a moving target. You will soon realize it’s impossible.]]> 5275882 Sun, 19 Aug 2018 13:12:01 EDT Niners Wire

Johnson battled a foot injury through most of training camp, so his exposure has been limited. However, coach Pete Carroll said he’s ready to go for Saturday and the team is excited to get him out there and competing.

“He played a lot of football last year and we brought him in here with (the idea that) he’s going to compete for the job and see what happens, and he’s doing so now,” Carroll said Friday. “It’s just unfortunate that he got held back a little bit but he’s ready to go.]]> 5275140 Sat, 18 Aug 2018 16:15:01 EDT Seahawks Wire
<![CDATA[Richard Sherman says only health can derail Texans QB Deshaun Watson]]> Richard Sherman has seen just about all of it in his eight seasons in the NFL. He has seen the talent of Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson firsthand, and he knows the only thing that can stop him.

“He can be incredibly good as long as he stays healthy,” Sherman told Mark Berman of Fox 26 in Houston. “That’s a hard thing to do in this league, but if he stays healthy the sky’s the limit.”

<![CDATA[Jalen Ramsey says his coaches and teammates encourage him to speak his mind]]> Jalen Ramsey is today’s version of Richard Sherman — and some. For the most part, he says what he wants and backs it up alongside his teammates week after week. That, of course, has caused some to call out the cornerback for being “too big for his britches,” but the fact of the matter is his teammates and coaches encourage his confidence and ability to get a buzz going — at least according to him.

In his most recent and candid interview with GQ magazine, the veteran cornerback talked about using his stardom to help the Jags make headlines, which is second nature to him]]> 5272366 Wed, 15 Aug 2018 11:51:01 EDT Jaguars Wire

The good: cornerback Richard Sherman (hamstring), guard Joshua Garnett (knee), linebacker Brock Coyle (hip) and rookie Fred Warner (chest) returned to practice. Sherman and Garnett both returned to individual drills only but could see their workloads increase as the week goes on ahead of the second preseason game on Saturday.

The bad news: running back Jerick McKinnon suffered a right knee injury that later required an MRI. So the offense practiced without its top two running backs with Matt Breida expected to be shelved for the rest of the preseason after separating his shoulder in the first quarter of Thursday’s game]]> 5270210 Sun, 12 Aug 2018 18:45:01 EDT Niners Wire
