The Buccaneers’ sold out high school took another big hit in less than a quarter of their “Thursday Night Football” game against the Eagles.
Cornerback Richard Sherman was ruled out for the remainder of the Week 6 contest with a hamstring injury.

Sherman joined the team on September 29, signing a one-year, $ 2.25 million contract. He was hired to help tone down the Tampa Bay hit that put cornerbacks Sean Murphy-Bunting and Carlton Davis on injured reserve earlier this season.
The three-time All-Pro has played in all three Buccaneers games since signing. He recorded 10 tackles and recovered a fumble while playing 98 percent of defensive plays in the first two games. He played in just five games for the 49ers a season ago after suffering a calf injury, recording an interception and a defended pass.

With Sherman’s injury, Tampa Bay’s two remaining healthy cornerbacks are Ross Cockrell and Jamel Dean, who have had significant playing time this season. Dee Delaney replaced Sherman against the Eagles. Delaney, 26, has played part of three NFL seasons. He has played primarily on special teams this season, but recorded 53 defensive plays in Week 3 against the Rams.
