All-Pro safety Earl Thomas on PUP list to start Seattle Seahawks training camp


RENTON, Washington — Seattle Seahawks All-Pro free safety is starting training camp on the physically unable to perform list.

Thomas had surgery to repair a torn labrum in his left shoulder during the offseason and was in uniform but just a spectator when the Seahawks opened training camp Friday.

Seattle coach said the team is going to be patient in bringing Thomas back and would wait until it's "safe and secure" for Thomas to be on the field. Carroll would not give a timeline on Thomas' return.

Joining Thomas on the PUP list are defensive backs and . Lane suffered serious arm and knee injuries in the Super Bowl, while Simon (shoulder) is hopeful of playing in the preseason. (knee) is also on the PUP list.

Seattle placed defensive tackle and defensive back on the non-football injury list. Williams is recovering from surgery after being diagnosed with kidney cancer.
