Report: Seahawks CB Walter Thurmond Facing 4-Game Suspension for Substance Violation

Oakland Raiders v Seattle Seahawks

Though the Seattle Seahawks appeared to be sitting pretty during their bye week at 10-1, they will be fielding a depleted secondary when they return. Earlier this week, we learned that cornerback Brandon Browner is expected to miss 4-6 weeks with a groin injury, and now comes word via NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport that things just got even worse:

Thurmond had appeared in all 11 of Seattle’s game this season, starting three.

The Seahawks have a pretty sizable lead over the 49ers in the NFC West, and would seem to be almost a lock to at least earn a first-round bye in the NFC, so all things considered these losses came at an optimal time.
