Earl Thomas doubtful to play this weekend

Seahawks safety Earl Thomas left last Sunday’s victory over the Eagles with a hamstring injury that coach Pete Carroll described as a “first-degree” strain early this week.

Carroll said that such an injury usually came with a 10-14 day timeline for recovery, which makes it little surprise that Thomas isn’t expected to play against the Buccaneers this weekend. Thomas has not practiced this week and has been listed as doubtful for the game on the team’s injury report.

If he’s out, Thomas will join defensive end Michael Bennett on the sideline. Bennett will miss his fifth game with a knee injury that required surgery early this month. Running backs C.J. Prosise and Troymaine Pope and linebacker Brock Coyle have also been ruled out.

Cornerback DeShawn Shead also left last week’s game with a hamstring injury and has been listed as questionable. Center Justin Britt is also questionable with an ankle injury.

    ‘Sweezy, we will be coming at you’

    Please, learn something about your opponent before saying something. Sweezy isn’t playing this year. In fact, he hasn’t played all year.

    There’s a first time for everything but I wouldn’t suggest holding your breath in anticipation of a ’12’ knowing what they are talking about or taking the time to research anything.

  3. Great news then!
    5 years for 30 million!
    Money well spent!
    How is the division race going?

    Sorry I was behind on buccaneers active roster. Thanks for the enlightenment.
    See you Sunday. Guess we can research the stats after the game.

  4. I hope they don’t even let him on the plane. Somehow the guy will try to talk Pete into letting him play and could blow his hammy into a season ender. No Earl please!
