Seattle head coach Pete Carroll later confirmed to reporters Thomas had broken his leg.

"I love Earl. I've always loved him", Carroll stated after the game.

The image of Thomas seemingly giving the finger to his own team will likely be the final and lasting image of the All-Pro in a Seattle uniform. "He went right to what it's going to take to get back ... and this is emotional as you can get, but he was very chilled about it on the field", Carroll said. "This is a very, very hard moment that most people wouldn't understand what that was all about".

Thomas was not available to the media after the game.

Thomas had just returned to the team to start the season after holding out all year for a contract extension or trade.

This is Thomas' last contracted year with the Seahawks. ESPN's Adam Schefter reported Sunday that the Seahawks had still been open to trading Thomas, but that they had refused to budge on their asking price of a 2019 second-round pick. He had held out the entire preseason and even practice this week, though he had been playing in regular season games.

"I think that's the insane part of our business".

Clearly, Thomas is not insisting that his team is "Number 1". "I'll continue to be the bad guy for ALL of us".

"We'd made such a good turn, heading in a good direction and then he has to deal with that", Carroll said of the injury.

"He knew exactly what had happened to him".
