Seahawks Walter Thurmond Continues Rehab

Stop me if you've heard this one before. Seattle Seahawks cornerback Walter Thurmond is currently rehabbing an injury and planning his return to the lineup in the upcoming season.

In the last 25 months, Thurmond had reconstructive surgery on his right knee while at Oregon and a surgical procedure on his left ankle last October. All of which leaves him in a delicate spot as he attempts to not only get back into uniform but also compete with Brandon Browner and Richard Sherman to play starting cornerback.

The good news is that Thurmond isn't the kind of football player to stay down for long.

"You hear the old adage about the DB with a short memory, Walter carries that consistently to other aspects of his life, obviously," said Kris Richard, the Seahawks' former cornerback who now coaches the defensive backs on Pete Carroll's staff.

"He's not going to allow a negative outlook to impede his rehabilitation, which is a really good sign. That's kind of what makes him a special person and a special player."

Thurmond will likely be used in the slot as a nickel corner, as long as he's healthy. And that's still something that needs to be determined.
