Seahawks CB Marcus Burley exited Week 4 against the Lions with a thumb injury.

Burley is the Seahawks' nickel corner. With Tharold Simon inactive, DeShawn Shead and rookie Tye Smith will slide in when Seattle is in nickel and dime.

Seahawks acquired CB Marcus Burley from the Colts for a sixth-round pick.

A 2013 UDFA, Burley didn't appear in any games with the Colts last year and spent time on the Eagles and Jags practice squads. He put together a strong preseason, grading out as the No. 3 overall corner by Pro Football Focus. Burley adds a speed complement to Seattle's secondary. He should open the year as the No. 5 corner, and perhaps eventually push for time in dime packages.
