Thurmond played in two games, starting one against Chicago this season.

Carroll said that Thurmond re-injured his hamstring last week.

Rams postgame quoteables: Jeff Fisher, Sam Bradford, Danny Amendola and more

HEAD COACH JEFF FISHER

(Opening statement…) “I will first start by thanking the Seahawks, Coach Carroll and the organization. I wish them luck in the playoff run. Pete has got a good football team here.”

I don’t think many people gave us an opportunity. There weren’t too many people who thought this game was going to be close except us. I’m very, very proud of the professional approach that the guys took, not only all year but today as well. They understand it’s a difficult place to play. They also had an understanding of what we needed to do today

Seahawks postgame quotables: Russell Wilson, Richard Sherman, Michael Robinson and more

QB RUSSELL WILSON

(On his touchdown run… ) We made a good call, but the defense did a great job of covering the play.  We thought we were going to have a wide open touchdown pass, because they were so ramped up, the defense, for the run.  But they did a great job of covering it up.  I just extended the play.  The offensive line did a great job of giving me enough time to make a play.  I was trying to throw it to Zach to break the record and I realized that’s not me. I wasn’t worried about

Full transcript of Pete Carroll’s postgame press conference

HEAD COACH PETE CARROLL

(Opening…) It was a good, hard-fought win, and it was nice to finish like that in a tough situation, and actually come from behind to get it done.  We had some games on the other end of that ledger for a while, so it doesn’t hurt us to have to struggle and fight like that.  We didn’t play as well as we can, we made some mistakes that cost us in getting continuity.  It would be wrong to not recognize that they are a very good football team.  They played hard and tough and they

Hawks don’t care who they play

The Seattle Seahawks were unanimous when asked if they had a preference between travelling to Dallas or Washington for the opening round of the NFC playoffs.

They don’t care.

“It doesn’t matter who we play I don’t think,” Seattle offensive tackle Breno Giacomini said. “We’ve just got to take care of ourselves. Get on the right page as an O-line, and just get better. That’s all we can do.”

“I don’t care either way,” said Seattle cornerback Richard Sherman. “We’ve seen both of them, and we’ll taker either one.”

The NFL announced the Seahawks will play the Washington-Dallas winner on Sunday, 1:30 p.m. Pacific time on FOX.

The other NFC Wild Card game with Minnesota at Green Bay will take place on Saturday at 5 p.m. Pacific time on NBC.

The AFC Wild Card games are Cincinnati at Houston at 1:30 p.m. Pacific time on Saturday on NBC. And Indianapolis travels to Baltimore for a 10 a.m. Pacific time contest on CBS.
