Walter Thurmond Misses Practice With A Head Injury

The last thing the Seahawks defensive backfield needed was another injury this week. With Kelly Jennings still recovering from a hamstring injury, his replacement, rookie Walter Thurmond III, missed Wednesday’s practice with a head injury, according to the Tacoma News Tribune’s Eric Williams.

There was a little surprise when today’s injury report came out, with rookie cornerback Walter Thurmond listed with a head injury. We did not see him practice today, but I assumed it was more of a preventative measure coming off of major knee surgery over a year ago with as many reps he played against Arizona.

The Seahawks didn’t specify what kind of head injury Thurmond was suffering from, but if it’s a concussion his status for Sunday’s game against the Oakland Raiders would certainly be in doubt. With any concussion, a player has to pass baseline test in order to receive medical clearance.

We’ll keep you updated on Thurmond’s status as more becomes available.
