Seahawks Cornerback Facing Suspension

Facebook

Adam Schefter of ESPN is reporting that Seattle Seahawk Walter Thurmond will be suspended for four weeks for violation of the NFL’s policy and program for non-PED substances.

Thurmond had been filling in for Brandon Browner who is currently missing time due to injury.

It is expected that Thurmond will not appeal the suspension so that he will be eligible to play for the final regular season game and the subsequent playoffs.

The Seahawks were in a similar situation in 2012 when starting cornerbacks Richard Sherman and Browner were suspended four games for banned substances after Week 12 of the season. Both appealed the suspension but Browner dropped his appeal after Week 13 and served his suspension over the final four weeks of the regular season. Sherman won his appeal.

Thurmond is coming off one his best games yet returning an interception for a touchdown against Minnesota.

The Seahawks’ next game is Dec. 2 against the New Orleans Saints. Their final regular season game will be at home versus the St. Louis Rams on Dec. 29.
