Twenty-two things to know about Week 9 injury report

The Legion of Boom will be without some of its oomph Sunday.

A hamstring injury will keep Seattle Seahawks safety Earl Thomas from playing Sunday against the Washington Redskins. He was officially ruled out by the team Friday.

"It's been a hard week for him, not able to do much," Carroll said on KIRO-AM in Seattle on Friday morning.

While Carroll was hopeful the Seahawks' star safety can show enough improvement from a hamstring injury he suffered trying to chase down DeAndre Hopkins in last week's win over the Houston Texans, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported earlier this week that Thomas always was a long shot to play this week.

Carroll said safety Bradley McDougald will replace Thomas.

Carroll announced running back C.J. Prosise (ankle) is a game-time decision as well. He is officially questionable.
