Seahawks vs. Rams injury report: CB Walter Thurmond ruled out

USA TODAY Sports

It looks like the Seahawks are in no rush to get Walter Thurmond back on the field even with the playoffs right around the corner.

The Seattle Seahawks will be without CB Walter Thurmond (hamstring) for their regular-season finale against the St. Louis Rams this Sunday.

This will be the third consecutive contest that Thurmond has missed due to this particular injury. The 25-year-old cover man was able to participate in Thursday's practice in a limited fashion but he must have encountered a setback as he was forced to sit out again Friday.

According to Danny O'Neil of the Seattle Times, head coach Pete Carroll "was not optimistic" that Thurmond would be able to play in the first round of the playoffs if the Seahawks are unable to steal a first-round bye.

Tackle Breno Giacomini (elbow) and outside linebacker Leroy Hill (hamstring) also each have a chance of missing Sunday's game after being listed as questionable. Giacomini seems to be the likelier of the two to play after getting a full practice in Friday.

As for the rest of the injury report, DE Red Bryant (foot), RB Marshawn Lynch (back), TE Anthony McCoy (back), WR Sidney Rice (knee), WR Golden Tate (illness), FS Earl Thomas (ankle) and CB Marcus Trufant (hamstring) were all listed as probable and are expected to play.
