Walter Thurmond placed on injured reserve, CB Ron Parker added

As expected, cornerback Walter Thurmond is out for the season with a fractured fibula as well as what Pete Carroll called “a pretty torn up ankle.” He was placed on injured reserve, and the team said Thurmond is looking at a 4 to 6 week recovery. Unfortunately for Thurmond, this is the second seriou

s injury in three seasons, as he also missed most of his senior year at Oregon after tearing three ligaments in his knee. He also suffered a high ankle sprain early in training camp.

“He’s going to need surgery,” Carroll said. “He’s got a pretty torn up ankle with a high ankle sprain that’s serious, and also the fracture, so we’re going to lose him for the rest of the season unfortunately. It’s a tough deal because he’s just getting started and just getting rolling and it’s difficult for him.

Thurmond’s roster spot was filled by cornerback Ron Parker, who was waived by Oakland last week. Parker, an undrafted rookie, spent training camp with the Seahawks.

“We’ve claimed him, which is a good claim for us, because we really liked what he did in camp,” Carroll said. “e’s got a lot of potential, great speed and he’s a big, strong kid, so it’s a good deal that he was available for us.”

CB Roy Lewis may also be added to the roster this week from the physically unable to perform list.
