  • Seahawks' Neiko Thorpe: Placed on IR

    Thorpe (abdomen) was placed on IR on Wednesday, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio KJR reports.

    Thorpe will miss at least three weeks, so the earliest he could rejoin his teammates on the field will be Week 14 against the Jets. He normally plays a depth role in Seattle's struggling secondary while also contributing on special teams.

  • Seahawks' Neiko Thorpe: Aggravates injury Sunday

    Coach Pete Carroll said that Thorpe re-injured his groin during Sunday's 23-16 loss to the Rams, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

    Thorpe missed the last six games due to a sports hernia injury prior to retaking the field on Sunday, but it looks as though he could now be set for another stint on the sideline. The 30-year-old normally does most of his damage on special teams while also providing depth at cornerback, so it wouldn't be particularly devastating to Seattle's secondary if Thorpe were to miss Thursday's game against Arizona.

  • Seahawks' Neiko Thorpe: Back for Sunday's game

    The Seahawks activated Thorpe (sports hernia) from injured reserve Saturday.

    Thorpe typically sticks to special teams, where he's the Seahawks' captain, but he could immediately be leaned on defensively in Sunday's game against the Rams. Starting cornerbacks Quinton Dunbar (knee) and Shaquill Griffin (hamstring) have been ruled out, and Thorpe is a top candidate to start opposite Tre Flowers. Thorpe hasn't played more than 30 defensive snaps in a season since 2016, however, and he'll have a tough task against Rams receivers Cooper Kupp and Robert Woods.

  • Seahawks' Neiko Thorpe: Returns to practice

    The Seahawks designated Thorpe (sports hernia) for a return from IR on Wednesday, John Boyle of the team's official site reports.

    Thorpe has resided on IR since the beginning of October with the sports hernia, so the fact that he's returned to practice is a positive sign for his impending return. The team will now have 21 days to activate Thorpe otherwise he'll land on season-ending IR. Tre Flowers and Linden Stephens are expected to continue to operate as the team's depth cornerbacks in the meantime.

  • Seahawks' Neiko Thorpe: May return in Week 4

    Thorpe (hip) is questionable for Sunday's game versus the Dolphins, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

  • Seahawks' Neiko Thorpe: Back in Seattle

    Thorpe (sports hernia) re-signed with the Seahawks on Monday, John Boyle of the team's official site reports.

    The 30-year-old will return to Seattle for a fifth year after compiling eight tackles in seven games in 2019 before requiring season-ending sports hernia surgery in December. Assuming Thorpe is back to full health when the Seahawks meet for training camp, he should have an inside track to a roster spot as a reserve cornerback and core special teams contributor. He's captained the latter unit both of the past two seasons.

  • Seahawks' Neiko Thorpe: Heads to IR, as expected

    Thorpe (sports hernia) was placed on injured reserve Wednesday, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

    Thorpe required surgery last week to repair a sports hernia injury, and it'll cost him the rest of the season. The 29-year-old rarely plays on defense, but he's Seattle's special-teams captain. The Seahawks brought in Ryan Neal to add cornerback depth during Thorpe's stead. Thorpe will be an unrestricted free agent in March.
