Richard Sherman (Richard Sherman) will not participate in Sunday’s game in New Orleans, but he will still have an impact on the game.
The 49ers opened a practice window for the All-Pro cornerback players to prepare for Sunday’s game against the Saints. However, on Friday, head coach Kyle Shanahan announced that the team would be safe with Sherman, and Sherman remained safe until the club faced the Los Angeles Rams in Week 12.
In some practice, the veteran has coached Brandon Aiyuk, who will play an important role in the offense when he is absent from the reserve team/COVID-19 roster in week 9 in week 9 effect. The rookie is absorbing all the skills Sherman has provided him because it will improve his game.

Aiyuk was able to “pick up Sherman’s brain” under the leadership of the representative of the practice they performed together. Then, the two will watch their practice videos in the locker room, knowing that this will only help rookies on Sunday.
“When you hit those older corners, they will do some tricks, and I will see it from him in practice,” Iyuk said. “I can be aware of these things because you don’t know what you don’t know.”
Sherman may praise Aiyuk as an “elder”, but will continue to provide resources for rookies who are already on-field organizers.
As the rookie missed most of the training camp and the first week of hamstring injuries, the two spent a limited time together. Due to current COVID-19 procedures, Sherman left the factory and returned from the calf injury suffered in week 1.
Jason Verrett, who has been working on the court in the absence of Sherman, noticed the interaction between the senior cornerback and the rookie receiver.
Verrett said: “After Sherm had a one-on-one match with Brandon, he just gave him some skills to help him make the release and try to give a different look.” “That way, he executes a certain route every time. Time, it will not show the same appearance.”

So far, Iyuk’s handling of his rookie season has left a deep impression on Verrett. He appreciates Aiyuk’s physical style of play and his ambition to be the cornerstone of Shanahan’s offense.
“The outstanding thing about him is that he is not afraid.” Verret said. “He is not afraid of challenges, nor is he afraid of learning. He has been trying to be that guy, so I think this is what I like about Ayuk. He is definitely trying to be the first person.”
