Seahawks Lose Earl Thomas For Season

Bad news for Thomas and the Hawks. Seattle Seahawks safety, Earl Thomas, who held out during training camp in hopes of getting a better deal or getting traded, saw his season and most likely his career with the Seahawks come to an end. This, after suffering an injury. The injury forced him out of the team’s road win over the Arizona Cardinals.

After the game, head coach Pete Carroll said Thomas suffered a lower leg fracture. Coach added that the injury will force Thomas to miss the remainder of the season.

Carroll was also asked what he thought of Thomas’ decision to flip the Seahawks sideline the bird as he was getting carted off the field.

“I don’t know anything about that,” Carroll said when asked about the gesture. “It’s a big stadium. I don’t know where it was aimed at. Earl was extraordinarily poised on the field. For what just occurred to be so clear and so resolved to — he knew what happened. But he was so poised and giving back to the players and all of us. So I don’t know what happened after that.” Was Earl Thomas wrong?

Thomas wasn’t available to speak with the media after the game, but his teammates hope he will be able to return to his dominant form when his leg heals.

After the game, Bradley McDougald said seeing Thomas carted off the field was “very difficult” and a “very emotional moment.”

“We personally know the time these players put into it,” he said, referring to Thomas and Dissly, “and to see their seasons get ended short like that, it’s just heartbreak because I know how bad they wanted it. So I think it’s our job to go out there and finish the job that they started.”

With Earl Thomas eligible to become a free agent after this season, Sunday’s game was likely his final game in a Seahawks uniform.
