Last week, a show called “Eaten Alive” aired on the Discovery Channel for the first time. A man was tracking a large anaconda and was attempting to get eaten alive by it. Sounds smart, right?

In the last quarter of Superbowl XLVIII, Richard Sherman suffered a high ankle injury and left the game. He sustained an injury to the same ankle earlier in the game. Although Sherman didn’t return to the game, the Seahawks took the Superbowl in 43-8 win. After the game, Sherman was on crutches and wearing a boot. Unless medical intervention is necessary, recovery and physical therapy will take between 6 and 12 weeks.
