As expected, Seahawks’ Earl Thomas out for Thursday’s game vs Cardinals
The Seahawks will be missing Earl Thomas for the second consecutive game. He traveled to Arizona and even warmed up, but as expected he is inactive because of a hamstring injury.
Thomas did not miss a game for his first six and a half seasons in the league. He has now missed seven of the team’s last 15 regular-season games.
Running back Eddie Lacy (groin) and Marcus Smith (concussion) are also out because of injury while guard Luke Joeckel continues to be out as he recovers from knee surgery.
Linebacker Josh Forrest, who was added to the 53-man roster this week, is inactive as is rookie offensive lineman Jordan Roos and second-year defensive lineman Quinton Jefferson.
The Arizona Cardinals are relatively healthy considering that it’s a Thursday game. Arizona’s inactive players are WR Chad Williams, RB D.J. Foster, LB Bryson Albright, G/T Will Holden, C Max Tuerk, TE Ricky Seals-Jones and DL Xavier Williams.
None of those players is listed as a starter on Arizona’s lineup card.
