Seahawks safety Earl Thomas has surgery to repair a torn labrum

If the Seattle Seahawks were fully healthy, they may be the Super Bowl Champions. But several key defensive players were playing with injuries, even in the big game, and they won’t make excuses as to why they lost the game.

Safety Earl Thomas is the latest to come out with a key injury. He reportedly had undergone shoulder surgery to repair a fully torn labrum.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter said that Thomas is expected to be ready for training camp this summer. The NFL Network says that his injury could take anywhere between 6-to-8 months.

Thomas, a key member of The Legion of Boom, played with the injury in the NFC Championship game against the Green Bay Packers and in the Super Bowl. Richard Sherman also played through an injury in both games.

Sherman was hurt in the NFC Championship game with a torn elbow ligament and in the Super Bowl. He was reportedly going to have Tommy John surgery, but that is not the case now.

Kam Chancellor was injured leading up to the Super Bowl, just two days before, with a torn MCL.

Thomas has not missed a game since being drafted in the 2010 NFL Draft with the 14th overall pick.
