The Seahawks’ beaten and battered Legion of Boom will get a key member back Sunday against the Falcons as safety Earl Thomas is set to return from a hamstring injury.
Thomas missed Seattle’s loss to Washington and win over Arizona after pulling his right hamstring in a wild win over Houston.
“I think he’ll make it back,” Seattle coach Pete Carroll said on his radio show on 710 ESPN. “He felt like he probably could have played had he gotten a couple days of practice in. So it worked out great. We made it through the game. Bradley (McDougald) did a great job of filling in for him and so he should be back. Now he has to make it through the days (of practice) and each doesn’t kind of pile up on him but I think he’ll do just fine.”
It’s not all good news in the Pacific Northwest, however, as Richard Sherman is gone for the season with a ruptured Achilles tendon and safety Kam Chancellor may not be available against Atlanta after suffering a stinger last Thursday against Arizona.
