Seahawks free safety Earl Thomas will miss the first start of his professional career Sunday against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Thomas was ruled out Friday due to a hamstring strain suffered during last week’s victory over the Philadelphia Eagles. Thomas has started 106 straight regular-season games and 12 playoff games without missing a game due to injury.
