Insight: The Legion of Boom has lost another member. In 12 games for Seattle last season, Thurmond racked up 33 tackles, one sack, one forced fumble and one interception. New York gave up 6.3 yards per passing attempt last season which was actually among the best in the league. Thurmond is likely to start alongside Prince Amukamara in the Giants' secondary.

Description: Seattle cornerback Walter Thurmond has been suspended four games for violating the league's drug policy. SOURCE: Ian Rapoport, NFL Network
Insight: The Seahawks are on bye this week so it's possible he could appeal the suspension. If Thurmond decides not to appeal, he'd be eligible to return for the regular season finale December 29th against St. Louis. Thurmond began the year as a backup but has been starting in place of the injured Brandon Browner.
