Walter Thurmond Injury: Seahawks CB Cracks Fibula, Ending His Season

The Seattle Seahawks didn't just lose to the Cleveland Browns. They just saw their replacement option for Marcus Trufant go down as well.

Walter Thurmond was expected to be the main replacement for Trufant at one of the cornerback spots after the Seahawks put Trufant on IR, and he was expected to grow into that position as the season wore on. That experiment ended up lasting one game, as Thurmond collided with Earl Thomas near  the end of the second quarter and had to leave the game. Dave Mahler of KJR 950 AM Sports Radio reported the bad news later, as head coach Pete Caroll revealed that Thurmond had cracked his fibula, ending his season.

With Thurmond out, rookie Richard Sherman (out of Stanford) will take his place. The Seahawks are going to have a lot of problems containing the outside deep threats at this point.
