Seattle Seahawks safety Earl Thomas raised his middle finger in the direction of his own team's sideline while being carted off the field due to an injury during the fourth quarter of the Seahawks' game at the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday.

Thomas suffered a lower left leg fracture and was fitted with an air cast following a game-tying touchdown pass from Cardinals quarterback Josh Rosen. He stayed on the ground for several minutes after the play as Seahawks and Cardinals players checked in on him.

While he was being carted off the field, Thomas made the gesture toward his own sideline.

Thomas, whose contract with the Seahawks expires after the season, has discussed his desire for a new, long-term contract with the team. He held out for most of the Seahawks' training camp due to his desire for a new contract and has been upset about not being able to reach an agreement on a new deal with the team.

The 29-year-old Thomas is a six-time Pro Bowl selection and a three-time First-team All-Pro. He helped guide the Seahawks to a Super Bowl XLVIII championship.

The Seahawks went on to win the game 20-17.
