Carroll: Decision to play is Sherman's if baby arrives early

The Associated Press

PHOENIX (AP) Seattle Seahawks coach Pete Carroll says it will be Richard Sherman's decision whether to play in Sunday's Super Bowl if his pregnant girlfriend goes into labor with the couple's first child sooner than expected.

Carroll said during a joint press conference with New England coach Bill Belichick on Friday that family comes first and "if (Sherman) is faced with that decision, we'll support him."

Carroll also added, "I can't wait to see little Petey."

Sherman said Thursday that the baby a boy isn't due for a couple of weeks and "he was going to do his father a favor," and wait to be born until after the game.
