Although the New England Patriots are enduring the biggest Super Bowl obstacle with the Deflate-gate controversy, the Seattle Seahawks have their own challenges to overcome.
Cornerback Richard Sherman and safety Earl Thomas suffered injuries in the NFC Championship, but the team was able to persevere and stun the Green Bay Packers in overtime.
Thomas suffered a shoulder injury and sat out for some of the game, but it has been confirmed that he will play in Super Bowl 49.
Head coach Pete Carroll echoed that the star safety will be good to go. “Earl’s going to be fine for next week. It’s going to take him all the way to game time. We’ll keep him from getting banged. But he’ll be fine by game time,” the Seahawks head coach said to the Seahawks official website.
Carroll went on to say that Thomas could even play this week if there was a game, but he will fortunately have another week to recover before the Super Bowl comes.
The Seahawks will need all the defensive firepower they can get against an elite New England Patriots offense.
