Sherman will not have surgery on his injured left elbow and will let the ligament damage heal on its own.

Sherman confirmed the decision in a text message to The Associated Press on Tuesday. Fox Sports first reported Sherman's decision.

Strong safety Kam Chancellor and Sherman played against the Patriots with significant injuries.

Sherman has ligament damage in his left elbow after being injured in the NFC title game and may need Tommy John surgery.

Sherman will wait until after the birth of his son to make a decision on how to move forward with his injured left elbow, according to coach Pete Carroll.

On his radio show on the team's flagship station Tuesday morning, Carroll said that he may have been misled on what type of surgery Sherman might need to repair the ligament damage in his elbow suffered in the NFC championship game.
