After sitting out the 49ers’ first two preseason games, cornerback Richard Sherman will make his debut with the team at the Colts on Saturday.

“It’s important just for a defensive continuity standpoint,” Sherman told reporters Wednesday regarding his return.
Knowing where people are going to be on game day. You don’t want the first time you deal and communicate with somebody to be with live bullets out there. So you want to get out there and get your communication. If someone can’t hear, or someone’s not looking, you want to kind of get those tweaks out of the way.”

Sherman said he’s not worried about his Achilles, which he tore last year, or his hamstring, which has bothered him at times during training camp. The four-time Pro Bowler said both feel great and that he could’ve played in last week’s preseason game at Houston.

“I’m more concerned about my game shape and making sure that I can still go every single play because I haven’t played in eight months.”
