RENTON, Wash. (AP) Seattle Seahawks All-Pro free safety Earl Thomas is starting training camp on the physically unable to perform list.
Thomas had surgery to repair a torn labrum in his left shoulder during the offseason and was in uniform but just a spectator when the Seahawks opened training camp Friday.
Seattle coach Pete Carroll said the team is going to be patient in bringing Thomas back and would wait until it's ''safe and secure'' for Thomas to be on the field. Carroll would not give a timeline on Thomas' return.
