It’s a bye week for the Seattle Seahawks, which means on Sunday, players are sitting around the television just like us watching football.
One game that’s on at Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman’s house is the Green Bay Packers vs. Minnesota Vikings Week 6 matchup.
In the first quarter of Sunday’s game, Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers took a hard hit from Vikings linebacker Anthony Barr after a throw and was carted to the locker room.
Sherman, who watched the incident unfold, took to Twitter to send Rodgers well-wishes.
Damn I hope @AaronRodgers12 is ok! The league is better when he’s healthy. Praying for you.— Richard Sherman (@RSherman_25) October 15, 2017
“Damn I hope Aaron Rodgers is OK,” Sherman said in the post. “The league is better when he’s healthy. Praying for you.”
The Seahawks and Packers aren’t exactly friendly rivals on the field, but Sherman can certainly appreciate Rodgers’ greatness and what he brings to the NFL.
As for Rodgers, the quarterback has been diagnosed with a broken collarbone. The Packers say he may miss the rest of the season.
The Seahawks and Packers last met in September to open the season, when Rodgers and his team celebrated a 17-9 win. The two teams could potentially see one another in the playoffs come January if the Packers can somehow survive the loss of Rodgers for an extended period this season.
