GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) — Seattle Seahawks All-Pro cornerback Richard Sherman is out for the season after rupturing his right Achilles’ tendon during last night’s win over the Arizona Cardinals.

Coach Pete Carroll says Sherman will have surgery after the swelling goes down.

Stanford looks to bounce back from a late loss at Washington State that dealt a blow to its hope of winning a conference title. That could be tough against the Huskies, who have the best defense in the country in terms of yards allowed per game.
