NFL: Dallas Cowboys at Seattle Seahawks Troy Wayrynen-USA TODAY Sports

Update: The worst was feared when Earl Thomas got carted off against the Cardinals, and it was confirmed during Pete Carroll’s post game press conference. Thomas has suffered a fractured lower left leg, the same leg he injured in December of 2016. Thomas will be placed on injured reserve, almost certainly ending his season and perhaps time with the Seahawks.

Original post: In a cruel twist of fate, Earl Thomas suffered a leg injury against the Arizona Cardinals and was carted off.

Breaking on Josh Rosen’s touchdown pass in the fourth quarter, Thomas’s leg appeared to go limp as he fell over Chad Williams.

As Thomas was getting attention from the medical staff, Seahawks players from both offense and defense gathered around Thomas and took a knee. Cardinals players came over from the sideline, as well.

Thomas was eventually loaded onto a cart with an air cast on his leg. Unlike Dissly, Thomas wasn’t ruled out immediately. At the time of publishing, he’s listed as doubtful to return. Of course, it doesn’t look good for Thomas. An update should be provided after the game.
