Former Seattle Seahawks and San Francisco 49ers man, Richard Sherman, took to Twitter to express his dismay over the latest injury. There’s no timeline to his return but coach Arians claimed they will not sign any new players on their secondary.

“We’ll just keep playing with the guys we’ve got, and see what happens. See how long of an injury it is. And next man up.

“We really need this rest and hopefully we’ll see who we can get back, if anybody. But the ones who have been playing, they definitely need a timeout,” Arians said via ESPN.

The Bucs are 5-1 after their latest win. They will be without Sherman for Week 7. But it is important to note that they’re already without first-choice starters, Sean Murphy-Bunting and the enigmatic Carlton Davis as well.

Safety Antoine Winfield Jr. also suffered a concussion during the win against the Eagles. It will be interesting how the Bucs line up when they take on the Chicago Bears.
