The Seahawks activated Walter Thurmond from the suspended list and released Perrish Cox to make room for him on the 53-man roster. Pete Carroll said in his press conference earlier today that Byron Maxwell will remain the starting cornerback opposite Richard Sherman, which is well-deserved, but Thurmond will be active and ready to come in to play if necessary. It should be interesting to see what kind of rotation that Thurmond and Jeremy Lane see this week as the third/slot/nickel cornerback. Lane has played very well in that role over the past few weeks.
Another notable is that Doug Baldwin will be taking over for Robert Turbin as the primary kick returner, which is surprising to no one.
Carroll also noted that Jermaine Kearse and Red Bryant will be game-time decisions on Sunday but he expects that they'll play.
Also, with the move to release Cox to make room for Thurmond on the active roster, the Percy Harvin injury saga continues for at least another day. Many had speculated that Harvin would go to the IR to clear a spot for Thurmond, but it looks like Seattle thinks it's worth keeping Harvin active for the time being.
