Seattle Seahawks’ Earl Thomas Goes under the Knife

For the entirety of Super Bowl XLIX, Seattle Seahawks All-Pro safety Earl Thomas played with an injured left shoulder. Thomas dislocated his shoulder in the NFC Championship game against the Green Bay Packers, while attempting to tackle receiver Randall Cobb. Thomas used a shoulder harness in both games to alleviate what was discovered to be a torn labrum.   

On Tuesday, the safety underwent surgery to repair his shoulder prior to the upcoming season. Traditionally, the procedure requires six to eight months to recover. This would potentially keep Thomas out for the beginning of the season. However, the Seahawks believe that he will be ready for Week 1 of the NFL season.   

Thomas was present for every snap on the defensive side of the ball in the Super Bowl, along with other injured members of the formidable ‘Legion of Boom’ secondary, safety Kam Chancellor and cornerback Richard Sherman. Both have chosen to forgo surgery. 

Thomas has not missed a start in his five seasons at safety, and had 97 tackles, along with four forced turnovers in 2014.
