Earl Thomas heading to IR with leg fracture

Earl Thomas

Earl Thomas’ season and career with the Seattle Seahawks might be over.

Thomas suffered a leg injury during the second half of his team’s 20-17 win over the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday. He was placed in an air cast and carted off the field (flipping his sideline the bird in the process).

After the game, Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said Thomas had a lower leg fracture and would go on injured reserve.

Thomas was in the final year of his contract, which is why he was seeking a new deal either from the Seahawks or another team. His injury will likely have a negative impact on his future earnings, which is why he was so insistent upon seeking a long-term deal entering the season.
