Seattle Seahawks safety Earl Thomas wanted to be traded. The Football Gods will not let that happen now.

He will likely be sidelined for an extended period of time. Thomas could potentially be lost for the season.

He left the game on Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals. He had an air cast placed on his lower left leg following the injury.

Thomas, who held out training camp in hopes for a new contract and even missed several days of practice before last week’s two-interception performance against the Dallas Cowboys, was eventually taken to the locker room to undergo an X-Ray. Following the game, Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said to the media that Thomas suffered a left leg fracture.

He was injured when he was attempting to defend Cardinals wide receiver Chad Williams’ touchdown reception in the end zone. Thomas appeared to make contact with Williams before going to the ground.

After being injured, several of his teammates went around him and held hands while taking a knee. Even Cardinals players came over, while medical professionals tended to Thomas.

The All-Pro safety will be a free agent at the end of the season. He is making $8.5 million this season.

The Seahawks previously said they wanted two second-round draft picks for Thomas. His name was linked to the Cowboys and the Kansas City Chiefs.

Thomas previously said if he wasn’t playing for the Seahawks, he wanted to play for the Cowboys. After a recent meeting between the Seahawks and Cowboys, he went into the rival locker room to seek out Jason Garrett.

However, now with Thomas injured, any potential deal is off. Teams will not trade for an injured player.
