Seahawks edge Arizona on Sebastian Janikowski's 52-yard field goal

Seattle Seahawks safety Earl Thomas left Sunday's game against the Arizona Cardinals with what looked like a serious leg injury, and he may have let his team know how he feels on his way off the field.

Thomas, who had hoped to be traded by the Seahawks to a team willing to pay him a big longterm contract, actually appeared to give the Seattle sideline the finger as he was carted off.

After the game, Coach Pete Carroll confirmed that Thomas had suffered a lower leg fracture.

"People that are criticizing whatever happened don't understand that this is an earth-shattering moment for a kid, " Carroll said, saying Thomas "Went right to what it's going to take to get back". Plenty of players on the fringes of the league, the guys you watch on Hard Knocks who get cut on a whim, have neither the leverage nor the ability to cash in. He's in the final year of his contract, and has said he plans to focus on staying healthy. "This is a very, very hard moment that most people would never understand what this is about".

While Carroll is in no way defending the contract standoff; he is defending Thomas for being angry.

Carroll also said the team will have to make a roster move over the next day or so to replace tight end Will Dissly, also out for the season with a patellar tendon injury.

Several players and coaches have expressed how much Thomas will be missed. ESPN's Adam Schefter reported Sunday that the Seahawks had still been open to trading Thomas, but that they had refused to budge on their asking price of a 2019 second-round pick. "I've loved everything he's ever done for us".

Thomas could be heading into an offseason where he could lose out on a significant payday as the Seahawks, or another team could be hesitant to give him that type of month on the open market.
