FF Today's Take:Stay tuned, as Monday's diagnosis of a "sprained left elbow" doesn't really tell us anything more than what most of us thought he had. The initial fear was that Sherman suffered ulnar nerve damage and he could be seen favoring his arm on multiple occasions late in the game. Thomas was diagnosed with a dislocated shoulder earlier on Monday, so Tom Brady & Co. could have a less challenging matchup than initially expected in a couple of weeks.
