The Seahawks are hoping to get back the safety of Earl Thomas

The constant losses suffered by the Seattle Seahawks in their defensive box makes them have great hope that free safety Earl Thomas can be available this week and compete with the team.

While it is still unclear whether left tackle Duane Brown and safety strongman Kam Chancellor can improve in face to be ready to compete again, according to what was expressed today by Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll, in his weekly appearance on 710 ESPN Seattle radio.

The Seahawks are coming off a major road win (16-22) that they got last Thursday night against the Arizona Cardinals.

Thomas did not train last week, although he warmed up prior to Thursday night’s game.

The most important of the injuries was that of cornerback Richard Sherman, who broke the Achilles tendon in his right leg, which will be lost for the rest of the season.

Carroll also confirmed that Sherman will be operated this week and they hope that in the end he will have a full recovery.

Brown came out in the second quarter with a sprained right ankle and did not come back.

He later indicated that his injury is not serious, but Carroll did not say Brown could play next Monday night against the Atlanta Falcons.

Matt Tobin replaced Brown on Thursday and would be ready to do it again if he can not return this week.

It’s a situation that should be seen more closely after Falcons defensive end Adrian Clayborn registered six sacks – all against left tackles – in Atlanta’s win over the Dallas Cowboys (27-7).

Chancellor suffered a nuisance on Arizona’s last possession and was replaced by rookie Delano Hill.

Carroll was confident that Thomas will return this week after missing the last two games with a hamstring injury.

He did not train last week but did work in the field prior to Thursday’s game.

“I hope so, I think it will come back,” Carroll said. “I felt I probably could have played if I had a couple of days to train, so I should be back.”

Despite the injuries, the Seahawks have a 6-3 winning record and are second in the Western Division of the National Conference (NFC).
