Earl Thomas missed the first game of his career on Sunday, a 14-5 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but the Seattle Seahawks All-Pro free safety doesn’t intend to miss another. Thomas was a full participant in Wednesday’s practice, along with Michael Bennett and Justin Britt.
Previous reports by Pete Carroll made it clear that Bennett and Mike Morgan would return, while the others were strong “probably” candidates, but this makes it seem certain that their starting center and Pro Bowl defensive end will also be able to go against the Carolina Panthers on Sunday night. It’s also encouraging that DeShawn Shead and Troymaine Pope were able to get some work in with two more practice days left to go.
We already knew that C.J. Prosise would be out, but everyone else seems like a possibility, at least. The fact that Jimmy Graham is a DNP shouldn’t mean much as he’s been doing that all season. Brock Coyle was also supposed to return this week, though he’s a DNP on Wednesday, while Luke Willson was the only player known to be hurt in the game on Sunday though his injury is not supposed to be serious.
The biggest concerns may be the status of Damontre Moore, who played very well after being signed, and a new injury for Paul Richardson. Overall, things are looking pretty good for the Seahawks right now, injurywise.
