The Seattle Seahawks are a team that doesn’t know when it is beaten. They were almost down for the count against the Green Bay Packers in the NFC Championship Game but made a stunning comeback to triumph 28-22 in overtime. They will now be up against the New England Patriots in Super Bowl XLIX.

The Seahawks incredible come-from-behind win however came with a cost as Richard Sherman and Earl Thomas both suffered injuries. Thomas dislocated his shoulder while Sherman had an elbow injury. More than just a few Seahawks fans pressed the panic button when they heard the news that these two stalwarts might miss the Super Bowl on February, 1st. Their worry was justified too. 

Sherman and Thomas both went for MRI to get the degree of the injuries checked. It had everyone associated with the Seahawks on a knife’s edge but reports are now coming in that they will both be fit enough to take to the field at the University of Phoenix Stadium. Sherman has an elbow sprain whereas Thomas’s dislocated shoulder is not too bad either.
