Bucs CB Richard Sherman active for Patriots game

Newly acquired Tampa Bay Buccaneers cornerback Richard Sherman will be active for Sunday night’s game against the New England Patriots, coach Bruce Arians said Friday.

Sherman, who signed Wednesday, will be dressed and available if needed amid injury woes in the secondary for the Buccaneers, Arians said.

Cornerback Jamel Dean is out with a knee injury he sustained last weekend in a loss to the Los Angeles Rams. The Bucs also are missing cornerback Sean Murphy-Bunting, who is on injured reserve after dislocating his elbow in Week 1.

Running back Giovani Bernard also is out with a knee injury. Tight end Rob Gronkowski (ribs) and outside linebacker Jason Pierre-Paul (shoulder) will be gametime decisions for the Buccaneers (2-1) against the Patriots (1-2).

Since entering the NFL out of Stanford as a fifth-round pick in 2011, Sherman leads active NFL players with 36 interceptions.

The five-time Pro Bowler has played in 139 regular-season games with the Seahawks (2011-2017) and 49ers (2018-20). He has also played 15 playoff games.
