Seahawks cornerback Walter Thurmond said he’s healthy and ready to play, but because of the short week will not be added to the active roster for Thursday’s game at San Francisco.

“I feel good,” Thurmond said. “I’m ready to get back out here. It’s been a year so I’m ready to go.

“It’s been hard. You never like watching from the sidelines, especially when you’re injured. So I’ve just been patiently waiting, and my time is about to come.”

Thurmond broke his leg against Cleveland in October last year, cutting short his 2011 season. He started the 2012 season on the Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list because he was still rehabbing the injury and not fully recovered.

But Thurmond said he expects to be ready to play next week at Detroit. The Seahawks have three weeks to place Thurmond on the active roster.

    I like this better. Extra practice and preparation time for the Lions, which we’ll be using a lot of nickel packages. And not looking past this weeks huge matchup, but the matchup of Browner/Sherman on Megatron is beyond intriguing.

    Shermanator vs Megatron!

    That could be better than Aliens vs Predator.

  3. GeorgiaHawk says:

    Happy hour time for me. Sorry west coasters.
    I will try to refrain from 1- Wilson/Flynn talk. 2- Song parodies. 3- Trying to identify who new usernames originate from.

    However I did say try. Lol.

    Thurmond isn’t ready to play yet! He needs to get n game shape and get back used to the speed of the game…I’ll expect him after the bye week, and that’s for his on good!

    The 49ers would love nothing but to stomp a mud hole off in our a$$, really hope our heads ain’t to big to get back up for this game! Let’s get back to 3 TE sets and bash and mash with the beast and hulk!!!

  5. Soggybuc says:

    Georgia, I strongly encourage you to write a song parody about Wilson/Flynn using new user names to trash each other on Blogs. That should cover everything except Hutch and we can’t make Bobby happy everyday can we.

  6. Anyone get frustrated at how we finish before halftime, like every game so far?

  7. GeorgiaHawk says:

    This song was made the year I was born. 1961 or 1861.Lol.

    Tru – I did for sure. We had over two minute, plenty to try for a FG. I pin that on Carroll , it almost turned into disaster

  9. sluggo42 says:

    I give a C- for thaat one GHawk, a little repetitious

  10. GeorgiaHawk says:

    sluggo42- Your right, probably my worst one, however I do have another one coming up in the next few days that will blow this one away. Lol.

    Thurmond broke his leg versus the Giants, not the Browns.

    Is Thurmond practicing this week, but they’re waiting to activate him until next week? He can begin practicing right now if they want, and then they have 3 weeks to activate him. If they wait for him to start practicing, they have 3 weeks to start him practicing, then they have 3 weeks from whenever he begins to practice to put him on the 53 or the IR.

  12. Thurmond got hurt against Cleveland, not NYG.

  13. PugetHawk says:

    Nate- I heard on KJR that Thurmond will begin practicing after the game tomorrow which gives them three weeks after this one. Made no sense to waste one of those three weeks on two practices during the short week.

  14. bbnate420 says:

    Thanks, Puget.

    pabuwal, you’re right. I could have sworn he broke it versus the Giants. I thought it was on that Nicks TD catch. My memory failed me. Should have googled it before posting. I’m not sure why everyone has determined that the kid won’t ever stay healthy already. He played 14 games his rookie year. That’s after coming back pretty quickly from his torn ACL from college. I think we need to see what he does this year before we put an injury-prone label on him permanently.
