On Sunday night, Earl Thomas suffered a leg injury. The Seattle Seahawks star is not expected to return against the Carolina Panthers on Sunday Night Football.
According to NFL.com, he’s suffered a broken bone in his leg. He bent it awkwardly after trying to break up a long pass from Cam Newton.
He was carted off the field and into the locker room. He underwent an X-rays on crutches and, according to Pete Carroll via NBC Sports Sideline Reporter Michele Tafoya, he has a cracked tibia.
With his injury, he could be lost for the rest of the season. In the Legion of Boom, he could arguably be their best defensive player.
