Broken leg healed, Thurmond rejoins Seahawks

The Seahawks finally activated cornerback Walter Thurmond Wednesday, bringing more depth to one of the Seahawks’ strongest positions. A fourth-round draft choice from Oregon in 2010, the 6-foot Thurmond was starting in place of injured Marcus Trufant in 2011 when he broke his leg in the week 7 game at Cleveland. He re-injured the leg in March and had to undergo a second rehab.

In August, he was put on the physically unable to perform list, meaning he was out a mandatory six games. The Seahawks had to activate him no later than Monday or risk losing him for the rest of the season.

He replaces on the 53-man roster WR Charly Martin, was was cut earlier in the week and re-signed Wednesday to the practice  squad after clearing waivers.

In other injury news, the Seahawks had a long list of players who sat out of practice Wednesday: G James Carpenter (concussion), WR Braylon Edwards (knee), RB Marshawn Lynch (back, wrist), DE Red Bryant (foot), LB K.J. Wright (concussion), DT Clinton McDonald (groin), S Kam Chancellor (quadriceps).

DT Jason Jones, who missed two games with a sore ankle, had limited participation, and WR Doug Baldwin, G John Moffitt and C Max Unger were at full speed.

    So does Thurmond replace Trufant?

    Kearse dropped his only attempt last game. I haven’t seen him since. You would think that a rookie with his first chance would concentrate a bit if he ever gets another chance at playing. He’s too good to let this opportunity get away.
