The Tampa Bay Buccaneers' defensive back situation got more precarious when Richard Sherman was ruled out of Thursday night's game against the Philadelphia Eagles with a hamstring injury.

Sherman suffered the injury on the Eagles' first offensive possession of the game, which ended with a Jalen Hurts-to-Zach Ertz touchdown.

The Buccaneers entered the game with an already banged-up secondary. Safety Antoine Winfield (concussion) was inactive for the game. Starting cornerbacks Carlton Davis (quadriceps) and Sean Murphy-Bunting (elbow) have been placed on injured reserve.

Sherman was signed on Sept. 29 to help reinforce the defensive backfield of the defending Super Bowl champions. The three-time All-Pro cornerback played in the Buccaneers' win over the New England Patriots in Week 4 after just two days of practice, and also played in the Buccaneers' Week 5 win over the Miami Dolphins.
