Earl Thomas (heel) is questionable for Week 13 against the Eagles.

Thomas was a late addition to the injury report this week, missing Thursday's practice with a heel problem. Rookie Delano Hill would be a candidate to start at free safety if Thomas isn't cleared for Sunday Night Football.

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll confirmed FS Earl Thomas (hamstring) will return for Week 11.

Thomas' return comes as the Seahawks adjust to life without Richard Sherman. SS Kam Chancellor is also uncertain with a stinger. Thomas missed Weeks 9 and 10. He's remained one of the league's best safeties this season.

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll expects Earl Thomas (hamstring) to play Week 11 against the Falcons.

Carroll injury updates should be taken with a grain of salt, but it makes sense with the Seahawks coming off a mini-bye and playing on Monday night. Thomas has not played since Week 8.

ESPN's Josina Anderson confirmed Seahawks FS Earl Thomas (hamstring) is out for Week 10 against the Cardinals.

This will be his second straight absence. Bradley McDougald will draw another start at free safety. Consider Thomas week-to-week.

Seahawks FS Earl Thomas (hamstring) is doubtful for Week 10 against the Cardinals.

He'll miss his second straight game. Thomas didn't practice this week, but should have a chance to return in Week 11 with Seattle on an extended layoff.

Seahawks FS Earl Thomas (hamstring) is out for Week 9 against the Redskins.

He wasn't able to practice after pulling his hamstring in last week's win over Houston. Bradley McDougald will spell Thomas at free safety on Sunday. Seattle's secondary is running on fumes with Kam Chancellor (questionable, ankle) also banged up.

Seahawks FS Earl Thomas (hamstring) will be a game-time decision Week 9 against the Redskins.

We doubt he suits up. Coach Pete Carroll said Bradley McDougald will be ready to go. It's a boost to a very tough matchup for Kirk Cousins in Seattle.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Earl Thomas (hamstring) is a "long-shot to play" Week 9 against the Redskins.

Thomas suffered the injury late against the Texans. Coach Pete Carroll said the safety was dealing with a "slight" pull on Monday, but it is apparently significant enough to keep him out a week. Seattle plays the Cardinals on Thursday night in Week 10, so it is not a given Thomas will make it back for that game, either.

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said Earl Thomas has a "slight" hamstring pull.

Thomas suffered the injury in the fourth quarter of Sunday's win over the Texans. Carroll's history on injuries is such that the word "slight" could mean Thomas will play this week or miss the rest of the season. We tend to believe it is much closer to the former, but Thomas' practice reps will be something to monitor this week.

Seahawks FS Earl Thomas was named NFC Defensive Player of the Week for Week 5.

Thomas almost singlehandedly won the game for Seattle over the Rams last week, forcing a Todd Gurley fumble at the goal line in the first quarter that resulted in a touchback instead of touchdown. Thomas also intercepted Jared Goff late in the fourth quarter with the Seahawks winning by three. Off a 2016 broken leg, Thomas has picked up as Pro Football Focus' No. 8 safety thus far.

Seahawks FS Earl Thomas (knee) didn't practice Wednesday.

There's been no concern from the Seahawks despite the missed practice. Thomas played all 73 snaps in last week's game with Tennessee.

Seahawks FS Earl Thomas says he thought his career was over when he broke his leg in December.

It's why Thomas sent his dramatic retirement tweet. "It's very different, especially it's my foundation, my legs," Thomas said of his first serious injury. "I'm a speedster. So when I initially broke it, I'm like, 'Dang, my career's over with.' ... But as you go through it, you learn, you understand that you can bounce back. And that's where I'm at at this point." Thomas is expected to be ready for training camp.

Coach Pete Carroll said there's "no question" FS Earl Thomas (broken leg) will be ready for training camp.

Thomas has reportedly looked close to full speed at OTAs. He continues to progress ahead of schedule and is on track to be cleared for the start of camp. Thomas will be nine months removed from his leg fracture for Week 1.
