Seahawks’ Earl Thomas activated; Dontae Johnson on IR
Cornerback Dontae Johnson was placed on injured reserve Saturday after hurting his groin during practice this week. Johnson was expected to start at right cornerback, but rookie Tre Flowers, a converted safety, might now do so. Veteran Neiko Thorpe is another option.
The move with Thomas was expected. He made it through his first week of practice with no issues after holding out of training camp while seeking an extension or a trade. His deal expires after the 2018 season.
