Seattle Seahawks safety Earl Thomas is not ready for training camp, and may not be ready for the season opener as he recovers from a torn labrum.
Thomas is recovering from a torn labrum in his left shoulder, an injury he sustained during the NFC Championship game in January. Thomas played through the Super Bowl with the injury. In February, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported that Thomas was expected to be “100 percent” for the start of training camp.
In five seasons, Thomas has not missed a single game for the Seahawks. Last season, Thomas recorded 97 tackles, four forced fumbles and an interception for the Seahawks. In nine career postseason games, Thomas has 60 tackles, one forced fumble and two interceptions.
The Seahawks open training camp on July 31, and will start the regular season on Sept. 13 in St. Louis.
