Loosehead prop Sheridan was ruled out of the Rugby World Cup on Tuesday after suffering a shoulder injury in the win over Argentina.
Sheridan was advised to return home by surgeons for treatment following scans on his left shoulder.
And Corbisiero claimed the squad would miss the presence of the Sale star, who had battled back from reconstructive surgery on his right shoulder to make the World Cup squad.
"Sheri worked really hard over the summer to come back from injury and has put in two very good performances. It is very disappointing," Corbisiero said.
"I was aware he had a niggle form the weekend but I didn't realise the severity of it until I heard a couple of the boys talking about it.4
"I just wish him all the best. He's a world-class player. He's a big hero of mine. I think the squad will miss him, but we've just got to get on with it now and go forward as a team in the tournament."
England have yet to confirm a replacement for Sheridan at the moment, although they have cover in the squad.
Corbisiero is likely to replace Sheridan in the line-up against Georgia on Saturday, while Matt Stevens and David Wilson are able to cover the loosehead position too.
"When my opportunity comes I'll be ready to take it and make the most of it," Corbisiero added.
"Responsibility will fall on all of us, as a front row, as a pack. There's four of us (props) left here and it's going to be a big job for all of us.
"Losing someone with the experience of Sheridan is tough, but it will make us stronger and pull together. We have four good players there."
Corbisiero made his Test debut against Italy in the Six Nations after Sheridan had pulled out with a calf injury.
"I've learned a lot from Sheri. He has been through a lot," added the London Irish prop.
"He has played in a lot of tough games, he's played Lions, he's a big carrier, he's got a great workrate for a big guy and his set piece is very effective as well.
"He was helpful to me, but it wasn't like taking me under his wing - there was mutual respect and he is more than willing to talk to you and to help you out.
"He's a great guy. I just feel for him."
