How will Seahawks move on without injured star cornerback Richard Sherman?

When the Seahawks get back to work next week coach Pete Carroll will begin devising something he hasn’t since early 2011 — a defensive gameplan without Richard Sherman.

It’s a task that Carroll seemed unable to comprehend in the immediate aftermath of the loss of Sherman for the season in Thursday night’s 22-16 win at Arizona.

“I don’t even know how to address that right now,’’ Carroll said of Sherman, who suffered what the team called a ruptured Achilles tendonin the third quarter. “We’ll miss the heck out of him. He’ll be with us every step of the way when he can. But we’ll miss the heck out of him.’’

How the Seahawks will replace Sherman appears pretty straight forward for now — Jeremy Lane will likely step back into the starting lineup alongside rookie Shaquill Griffin.

Lane played the left cornerback spot that had been Sherman’s for the final 20 minutes of Thursday’s game with Griffin staying on the right side. Justin Coleman remained as the nickelback.

Seattle has just one other cornerback on the roster, Neiko Thorpe.
