Seahawks cornerback Walter Thurmond has been suspended by the NFL for the team's next four games for violating the league's substance abuse policy.
Thurmond will be eligible to return to the active roster on Monday, Dec. 23 before the final game of the regular season.
A member of one of the NFL's best secondaries, Thurmond has one interception and one sack thus far. His pick came in the team's last game, against Minnesota, and he returned it 29 yards for a touchdown.
