<P>First www.officialauthentic49ers.com/53+Navorro+Bowman+Jersey+Cheap.html reported by the NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the news comes as a big blow to the Seahawks, who are already without cornerback Brandon Browner for several more weeks. Thurmond, who generally plays nickel cornerback, has been filling in for Browner while Browner sits out with a groin injury he suffered in Atlanta.</P>
<P></P>
<P>Thurmond had a breakout performance against the Minnesota Vikings last week, when he returned an interception 29 yards for a touchdown and added two tackles from the secondary. The fourth year Seahawk a fourth round pick in 2010 out of Oregon has played in every game this year and is considered the strongest backup in Seattle's "Legion of Boom," with 31 tackles and a pick this season.</P>
<P></P>
<P>The timing couldn't be worse for the Seahawks as they prepare to host Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints on Monday, Dec. 2. The Saints have the NFL's second leading passing offense, which ought to match up well with Seattle's second leading pass defense however, now the Seahawks will be missing one of their most talented defenders in the defensive backfield.</P>
<P></P>
<P>Since 2011, five Seahawks have been suspended for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy. Last season, both Browner and fellow starting cornerback Richard Sherman were suspended, though Sherman successfully Kids NaVorro Bowman Jersey appealed his punishment and didn't miss a game. Browner sat out the final four games of the regular season and returned for the playoffs.</P>
<P></P>
<P>Cornerbacks Byron Maxwell and Jeremy Lane will be called upon to play for Thurmond during the four game suspension.</P>
<P></P>
<P>Both Thurmond and Browner are set NaVorro Bowman Jersey Pink to be free agents after this season. Though Thurmond is currently making the league minimum salary, he is expected to draw interest from around the NFL as is Browner, who has 19 tackles, one interception and has defended 10 passes this year.</P>
