SANTA CLARA — Now Richard Sherman has two leg injuries.
The 49ers veteran cornerback pulled his hamstring Friday morning at training camp. This in addition to his surgically repaired Achilles tendon he ruptured Nov. 9 and still rehabs.
Sherman injured his hamstring fewer than 10 minutes into team drills. He was covering starting wide receiver Pierre Garcon man-to-man, the offense called a play-action pass and Garcon ran a deep crossing route from the right side of the offense all the way to the left.
Sherman chased as fast as he could, but Garcon still beat him by two or three steps. When Garcon caught the ball, Sherman lunged at him with one hand, missed and fell hard to the ground. Garcon jogged into the end zone for the touchdown. Sherman got up, walked slowly to the sideline, took off his helmet and did not return to practice.
