Seattle Seahawks FS Earl Thomas (shoulder) will undergo surgery to repair the torn labrum in his shoulder Tuesday, Feb. 24. Rehab time is 6-8 months.
Huddle Up: The end of that timetable very much threatens the start of the 2015 season for the three-time first-team All-Pro who has averaged 93.4 tackles, 8.2 passes defensed and 3.2 interceptions in his five seasons in the Pacific Northwest.

Updating a previous report, Seattle Seahawks FS Earl Thomas (shoulder) will undergo surgery for his torn labrum and miss 6-8 months. However, he is expected to be good to go by the start of training camp.
Huddle Up: "Good to go by training camp" sounds a little overly optimistic given that the short end of the above timetable takes us into August.

Seattle Seahawks FS Earl Thomas (shoulder) will play in the Super Bowl, head coach Pete Carroll said Friday, Jan. 23.
Huddle Up: The Thomas suffered a separated shoulder in the NFC title game and at least has an extra week of recovery time before the big game. This particular injury, though, could compromise Thomas more than most, given his aggressive, hard-hitting style.

Seattle Seahawks FS Earl Thomas will no longer return punts for the team, and he'll be replaced by WR Bryan Walters. Head coach Pete Carroll said Thomas could remain in the mix if the team needs him, but Walters and a mix of others will be the primary returners.
Huddle Up: Thank-you cards are forthcoming from Thomas' IDP owners as the All-Pro safety was one hard hit or freak mishap away from sustaining a totally unnecessary injury.

Updating previous reports, Seattle Seahawks FS Earl Thomas' four-year contract will pay him a base value of $40 million with $27.725 million guaranteed, according to a source. Thomas is the NFL's first safety to average $10 million per season and is the highest paid defensive back on a multi-year deal.
Huddle Up: Thomas is a key member of the Seattle secondary, but he may not be the highest-paid Seahawk defensive back for long; Richard Sherman is next up on the team's to-do list.
