Thomas (lower leg) said he feels 80 percent and nearing full strength, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio KJR reports.
Thomas is confident his legs will be back to full strength soon and that he'll still possess the explosiveness he had before fracturing his tibia last season. It appears as if the Pro Bowler has no doubts that he'll be ready for the beginning of the regular season, a reassuring sign for Seahawks fan.
Thomas (tibia) is expected to be healthy by training camp, Sheil Kapadia of ESPN.com reports. "He's working a lot more than we thought he would at this time," head coach Pete Carroll said Friday. "There'll be no question about him being ready to go when we get back to [training] camp."
If Carroll is to be believed, Thomas remains ahead of schedule in his recovery from a fractured left tibia, which ended his 2016 campaign in Week 13. The extent of Thomas' current activity level remains unknown, but it's clearly enough for Carroll to speak in an optimistic tone. No matter, a wait-and-see approach will be taken until Thomas displays his health on the field during training camp and potentially the preseason.
According to head coach Pete Carroll, Thomas (leg) is set to be ready for the start of the season, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.
Thomas fractured his tibia in Week 13 of last season and was placed on injured reserve. The recovery from a serious leg injury like this is lengthy, but it is encouraging to hear Carroll speak so optimistically of Thomas' status as organized team activities approach.
Thomas suffered the injury in Week 13 and was placed on injured reserve shortly thereafter. He mentioned the possibility of retirement on his Twitter account in December, and while broken tibias do require a lengthy rehab process, Thomas has apparently moved past any thought of hanging up the cleats. Though he may be absent from the offseason program and limited in training camp, he seems to be on track for Week 1.
Thomas (leg) posted a video of himself jogging on a treadmill Monday.
After breaking his fibula in early December, any signs of physical movement from the safety come as a big step forward. It still will be at least a month until he can participate in any sort of team activities, but Thomas, who once contemplated retiring due to the injury, seems to be on the right track. When head coach Pete Carroll was asked about the safety's status for the upcoming season, he said, "All indications are that he will make it back. He is doing very well."
