Not too long ago, Aaron Curry was the fourth-overall pick in the 2009 NFL Draft and a sure-fire, can't-miss linebacking prospect out of Wake Forest. Now, he's been traded from the Seahawks to the Raiders for a pair of undisclosed (read: late) draft picks.
Thurmond out for the season: Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said in his Week 7 postgame conference that DB Walter Thurmond is lost for the season with a cracked fibula. Thurmond was injured late in the second quarter as he went up for a pass breakup, but he collided with teammate Earl Thomas. Thurmond was eventually carted to the locker room. He had two tackles in the game.
Thurmond stepped into the starting lineup because of a season-ending injury to Marcus Trufant. Now, he is going to miss a golden opportunity with a season-ending injury of his own. Continue to leave him off Fantasy rosters.
Here's a link to more information on Darbut for those who are interested.THe Seahawks signed Keith Darhbut to their practice squad.He ran a 4.38 with a 1.42 10 yd split at his pro day.Its good to see him given a look because he played div 3 football and needless to say there is a chasm between that level and the NFL so he's very much a project.
Hopefully Blaine Sumner (his former teammate ) can get a shot as well. This guy was unblockable. Big Nose Tackle, impressive athletic ability. Two tremendous athletes at Colorado School of Mines, thats a tough school academic wise. Sumner is raw but half the defensive tackles I see are. I am surprised Darbut is just now getting a shot on practice squad, I thought he would get one a long time ago with Clay Matthews opening up the door for the de/olb pass rushers.
Williams done after breaking ankle: Seahawks WR Mike Williams was carted off the field in the third quarter Week 15 at Chicago with an ankle injury and didn't return. He had two catches for 31 yards before leaving. Coach Pete Carroll announced after the game that Williams had suffered a broken ankle and will miss the rest of the season.
