In a text to Ed Werder, Earl Thomas did not back down from the idea that he's at least considering retirement. "I'm taking it one day at a time. I still feel the same way I felt last night," Thomas told Werder. "You have to remember my team is still fighting. I don't want to become a distraction." Thomas added that he is not planning on having surgery to repair his fractured tibia.

Without Earl Thomas, there's a huge void

Losing their free safety for the rest of the regular season means the Seahawks are without one of the NFL's true ironmen. Only Dallas' Brandon Carr has played more defensive snaps than Thomas since he broke into the league in 2010. (ESPN Stats & Info)

If the playoffs started today, the Seahawks (8-3-1) would have a first-round bye. Their most likely opponent for a home game in the divisional round (in order) would be: the Lions, Falcons or Giants. The path to the Super Bowl would include one potential road game: the NFC championship in Dallas against the Cowboys.

Sherman 'sad' for Thomas (0:39)

I asked Richard Sherman what Earl Thomas said when he was laying on the field with a fractured lower leg. "He said, ‘That was a hell of a break by me,' " Sherman said. "And it was. It was a perfect break. He said, ‘I read that.' That's Earl being Earl. He wasn't talking about the injury at all. He said he read that play. He was waiting on that. And he made a play."
