Bucs CB Richard Sherman (calf) to miss games

Tampa Bay Buccaneers cornerback Richard Sherman is going to miss a few games after injuring his calf during pregame warmups Sunday against the Washington Football Team.

“I doubt seriously if he’ll be back anytime soon,” Bucs coach Bruce Arians said Monday.

Sherman, 33, was set to play in his first game in a month after missing the past three games with a hamstring injury. The five-time Pro Bowl selection was not on the injury report heading into Washington.

“He was fine Thursday and Friday,” Arians said. “I thought he was going to have a heck of a ballgame. He just stained his calf before the ballgame, so don’t know how long it’ll be.”

However, The Athletic reported that Sean Murphy-Bunting could come off injured reserve this week and be available to play against the New York Giants in Week 11. Murphy-Bunting dislocated his right elbow during Tampa Bay’s season-opening game against the Dallas Cowboys.

Sherman joined the Bucs midseason to bolster a secondary hit hard by injuries, including Murphy-Bunting. He started three games and was credited with 11 tackles and a fumble recovery.

The Bucs dropped to 6-3 following a 29-19 loss to Washington.
