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.
