The Tampa Bay Buccaneers officially placed CB Richard Sherman on the injured reserve, according to Ian Rapoport.

Sherman was determined to have suffered a Grade 2 calf strain during pregame warmups for Week 10 and expected to miss a few weeks as he recovers, so this doesn’t come as a big surprise. 

This is unfortunate news given Sherman missed multiple weeks due to a hamstring injury just two games after signing with Tampa Bay. 

Sherman, 33, is a former fifth-round pick of the Seahawks back in 2011. He was entering the final of his five-year, $58.789 million contract when the Seahawks released him during the 2018 offseason.

The 49ers signed him to a three-year, $39.15 million contract and he was testing the open market as an unrestricted free agent this year before signing a one-year, $2.25 million deal with the Buccaneers.

In 2021, Sherman has appeared in two games for the Buccaneers and recorded ten tackles and one fumble recovery.
