Friday Round-Up: Richard Sherman Takes Fans Inside His Hospital Room

Following surgery on his injured Achilles, Richard Sherman takes 12s inside his hospital room.

Good afternoon, 12s.

Here's a look at what's "out there" for today - Friday, November, 17 - about your Seattle Seahawks: 

'Out Of Context' With Richard Sherman

On episode 12 of his 'Out of Context' series with The Players' Tribune, Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman takes fans inside his hospital room in Green Bay as he readies and recovers from surgery for the Achilles injury that ended his 2017 season in last week's win over the Arizona Cardinals. 

"It went great," Seattle head coach Pete Carroll said of Sherman's surgery on Thursday. "Had a chance to talk to Richard yesterday. He sounded a little groggy, but they're really happy with the way they went about it. It's going to give him a chance to get back in months, which is really nice. There's a couple choices that they can make and they made a choice that was aggressive and they think it worked out well according to the docs, so we'll be very hopeful for that."

As Sherman alludes to in the video embedded above, noting "I'll be back in Seattle soon, supporting my guys," Carroll said he expects Sherman to be back with the team this week coaching up players in Seattle's secondary. 

"He's been adamant about wanting to get back as soon as he can. ... He wants to get around and be close to the guys he's been working with and make sure he's available for the guys he's been helping," Carroll said. "You saw him on the sidelines, he didn't waste a minute and he's already expressed that's what he would like to do, and I'm all for it."

Social Post Of The Day

Today's "Social Post of the Day" comes from former Green Beret and former Seahawks long snapper Nate Boyer, who reminds fans that throughout the month of November the Seahawks Pro Shop is donating 10 percent of in-store sales of Salute to Service gear to Merging Vets & Players, a non-profit program Boyer started with FOX Sports' Jay Glazer to address challenges combat veterans and professional athletes face when transitioning to civilian life.
