  • Seattle Seahawks tight end Will Dissly is carted off the field after an injury against the Arizona Cardinals during the first half of an NFL football game Sunday Sept. 30 2018 in Glendale Ariz

One of the final members of the Seattle Seahawks's Legion of Boom likely ended his career on the team with an explosion.

On Sept. 5, All-Pro safety Earl Thomas announced the end of his offseason-long holdout from the Seattle Seahawks in an Instagram post.

It's tough to be on the right side of history in the NFL. And that's probably true.

Seattle Seahawks star defensive back Earl Thomas was just carted off of the field during his team's game against the Arizona Cardinals.

Cardinals quarterback Sam Bradford will be relegated to the third spot on the depth chart on Sunday, per ESPN's Adam Schefter, heading to the bench after starting Arizona's first three games of the season. And then, the finger.

Carroll said later Monday that Thomas suffered a fracture in his left tibia, the same bone he broke in December 2016.

They asked that any jogger at Rankin Lake Park on Saturday call them using a special tip line: 704-869-1075. The father said Maddox usually runs away, but would either slow down or stop. "I was running.

"I know there's been a lot of talk about it, people that are criticizing whatever happened don't understand ... give him a little slack", Carroll said. This was an earth-shattering moment for the kid.

"He knew exactly what had happened to him". But he was so poised and giving back to the players and all of us. Thomas, who has struggled with injury and decline since the days when Seattle was a perennial championship competitor, that became clear.

Clearly, Thomas is not insisting that his team is "Number 1".

"He said make sure we win this game", said linebacker Bobby Wagner, the last teammate to address Thomas before he was carted into the locker room.

The Seahawks will be without two productive players for the rest of the season.

"He had it all just totally figured out and was as emotional as you can get".
