Earl Thomas back at practice, unsure about Week One

AP

Seahawks safety Earl Thomas has practiced for the first time since the week before the Super Bowl.

Thomas was on the practice field today, the biggest step yet in his recovery from offseason shoulder surgery. Thomas injured his shoulder in the NFC Championship Game but played through it in the Super Bowl.

“I’m just happy that I got a chance to go out there today,” Thomas said. “My teammates were happy that I was out there and it just felt good to run around.”

But while Thomas was able to run around, he wasn’t able to hit, and he wore a red no-contact jersey. It’s unclear whether he’ll be all the way back in time for Week One, although coach Pete Carroll said having Thomas on the field for the opener remains what the Seahawks are aiming for.

Getting Thomas back on the field in time for Week One would be a big boost for the Seahawks.

    The adderall is finished, back to reality and irrelavence for Seattle. #HTTR
    ===================

    We must concede, that east coast Washington team and their fans are THE experts on irrelevance.

    Salute.

  2. Earl is easily the best free safety in the game, Kam best SS, Wagner best MLB, Sherman best CB, Beast mode best RB, Jimmy 2nd best TE, Wilson top 5 QB, Bennett, Avril, Mebane, Irvin, Okung, Wright are all pro bowl caliber talents. This is an extraordinary roster. Plus I think Tyler Locket, Frank Clark and Marsh are future stars. Good time to be a hawk fan, especially after all those lean years.

  3. Oh the lean years before Mike Holmgren and after him with Tim Ruskell were hard to watch.

    When Jim Mora Jr. was throwing everyone under the bus and we were getting beat by 30 points a game it was almost enough to make me stop watching football.

    Pete Carroll comes with John Schneider and drafting Okung/Thomas/Chancellor/Tate and churn the roster to fit this scheme that nobody could see but them. Now its the most stacked roster in football and everybody is playing catch up. Good time to be a Seahawk fan.

    Knock-knock-knock…..
    Seattle Fan? Where’d you go?
    I never chimed in too much about the 12th man being a noob-fair weather-late to the party guy, but perhaps….

    Don’t be a goober.

  5. Boy, the Pats SURE LUCKED OUT with all of our Pro Bowlers in the secondary having serious injuries.

    I disagree. Earl talks. He doesn’t cover. Did you see Amendola in the SB score two yards away from Earl. Earl froze, didn’t move toward Amendola until after the ball was thrown. Amendola!?

    How many interceptions does Earl have in the past 3 years? Three. No way I’m paying him that price just to call defensive plays. Way overrated. And I’m a long time Seahawk fan. It’s okay to tell the truth about your team and not drink the koolaid.

  8. Whether you Patriot fans want to believe it or not, the Seahawks were an injured team in that Superbowl. And Earl Thomas was one of more seriously hurt, hence he’s still not available to practice at full speed and still questionable for the start of the season. Now 80% of Earl is better than most safeties in the league, but nowhere near as good as 100% of Earl. You don’t have the #1 defense in the NFL over the course of 3 seasons by being overrated or lucky. Just count your blessing Patriots’ supporters you might not get quite as lucky next time.
