In his press availability today, Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll remarked about Brandon Browner’s groin injury, suggesting he thought “it looked serious”. Browner suffered the injury in their win against the Atlanta Falcons and while the injury was addressed, no timeline has been set for Browner’s return. The good news is that the Seahawks host the Vikings before their bye week, so if he can come back, he has three weeks at least until they really need him to worry about coming back.
Browner’s injury means that Walter Thurmond III will get more looks as a starting corner on the outside. He has been getting a decent amount of reps in that role when injuries have arisen and has been effective. Nevertheless, the Seahawks would like to have all hands on deck when they get to the playoffs and Browner could be valuable, especially in certain matchups when his size can be extremely useful. If the injury puts him out for the rest of the season, the Seahawks become relatively thin at the corner position, especially with this much time left in the season.
