Seahawks lose Walter Thurmond to broken leg

Pete Carroll AP

The Seahawks fell to 2-4 in a painful 6-3 loss to the Browns on Sunday afternoon and it didn’t just hurt them in the standings.

Cornerback Walter Thurmond will miss the rest of the season with a broken left leg suffered in the second quarter. Thurmond’s loss is a tough blow to the team’s depth in the secondary. Thurmond was forced into a starting role when Marcus Trufant was placed on injured reserve with a back injury and now the team will have to reach even further to fill out their defensive backfield.

Rookie Richard Sherman stepped in when Thurmond went down and Kennard Cox played in nickel packages. Roy Lewis can come off the PUP list this week, but it would not be surprising to see the Seahawks look for some veteran help in the secondary in the days and weeks to come.

    WOW….I guess Pete knew what he was doing regarding the QB situation…Doesn’t look like the legend of Charlie Whitehearst is gonna get off the ground. Not looking good for the Hawks!

    That’s too bad, Thurmond is better than Trufant and was in a good situation to take over his starting spot. Hopefully Lewis can get back up to speed quick.

    Put Thurmond at QB and he’ll do better than Whitehurst.

    Thurmond is not “better than Trufant.”

    I think the seascrotes need to pay big bucks and hire sean astin to play Rudy and put Rudy, (sean astin), into the lineup.

    Seattle Seashucks, going nowhere at the speed of Pete Carroll. Wait, not Pete’s fault, it’s someone else’s fault. Possibly, only the St. Loser Rams are worse. Worse than Seattle? Is such a thing possible?

    maybe the seahawks should make a play for albert pujols in the off-season seeing as how he can score more by himself in one game than the entire seahawks organization
