SEATTLE — Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman told ESPN that an MRI taken Monday revealed he has an elbow sprain and that he will be ready to play in the Super Bowl Feb. 1, the sports network reported.

In addition, ESPN reported that safety Earl Thomas dislocated his shoulder in the first half Sunday. He also underwent an MRI Monday, and Thomas said he, too, will be ready to play in the Super Bowl against the New England Patriots.

Head coach Pete Carroll, at his Monday press briefing, said he didn’t know the extent of the players’ injuries because they were still undergoing MRIs.

Carroll did not provide an update on Thomas, but a source told ESPN’s Adam Schefter in a text message that “Earl will play in the Super Bowl, don’t even waste any time on the story.”
