The Seattle Seahawks may have a developing problem with one of their starting cornerbacks that played healthy through the entire preseason.
Terry Blount of ESPN reports that Brandon Browner, entering his third season with the Seahawks, was limited in practice because of a hamstring injury.
In a surprising development, Seattle Seahawks starting cornerback Brandon Browner was a limited participant in Wednesday’s practice because of a strained hamstring. Browner played in all four preseason games without a problem.
Browner is just one of the compounding injuries on Seattle’s defense. While the offense saw both Sidney Rice and Stephen Williams return, five different defensive players either did not play or had limited participation in Wednesday’s practice.
Brandon Mebane and Tony McDaniel, both starting defensive tackles, were also limited along with Cliff Avril. All three are hopeful in the season opener against the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday.
Browner had 44 total tackles (35 solo) in the 12 games he played in 2012. He also forced three fumbles and had caught three interceptions. The former Oregon State Beavers cornerback has played his entire career with the Seahawks.
