Seahawks' Walter Thurmond reportedly out for the year

USA TODAY Sports

Seattle's Walter Thurmond is done for the season, according to the cornerback's Twitter account.

After battling a hamstring injury and being ruled out for Week 17, Seahawks cornerback Walter Thurmond tweeted he will miss the rest of the season.

Thurmond missed the last two games after suffering the injury against Arizona. Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said he was not optimistic Thurmond would be able to play in the first round of the playoffs.

The 25-year-old Thurmond has battled injuries dating back to his college career at Oregon. He began this year on the physically unable to perform list after breaking his leg last season. During his three-year career, Thurmond played in 22 of a possible 48 regular-season games.

He appeared in just two games this year, including one start. Fortunately for the Seahawks, cornerback Marcus Trufant appears ready to return from a hamstring injury, while cornerback Brandon Browner will be eligible to return from suspension following Week 17.
