Earl Thomas’s Leg Injury
Earl Thomas, the Seattle Seahawks’ safety, was taken off the field in the fourth quarter of Sunday’s 20-17 victory over the Arizona Cardinals, with his lower left leg in an air cast.
Thomas was transported directly to the X-ray room, and Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll broke the grim news to reporters after the game.
Thomas tweeted his thoughts in the immediate aftermath of suffering the injury:

According to NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport, Thomas suffered a clean lower leg break with no ligament injury or dislocation. Rapoport went on to say that Thomas should be fully recovered by the Super Bowl in February and ready for free agency in March.
Meanwhile, if this was Thomas’ final game in a Seahawks uniform, a phenomenal career that saw him earn first-team All-Pro honors three times and six Pro Bowl selections couldn’t have ended any worse.
