Richard Sherman: Victory overrides pain of sprained ankle

Despite suffering a high-ankle sprain and being on crutches after Super Bowl XLVIII, Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman isn't feeling much pain.

At least not figuratively following a 43-8 win over the Denver Broncos.

"It really numbs the pain a lot," Sherman said. "It was really hurting, and I was sad I let my teammates down and I wasn't able to finish the game. But I knew they would step up for me and do that. And this feeling is just unbelievable, it's a dream come true."

Sherman's injury isn't regarded as serious.

"I'm as 100 percent as I can be for the celebration," Sherman said. "I will be at the celebration, I will not miss that."
