Seahawks CB Brandon Browner’s groin injury “looks serious”


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.

    Thin in the corner position? Compared to who the NFC Pro Bowl team? Thurmond, Maxwell, & Lane would start for every team in the league if they weren’t on the Seahawks.

    Agreed…they also have Deshawn Shead at 6’2″ 220lbs who has played some cb and safety on the practice squad who looked good in pre season and has been with the team since 2012 on the practice squad…and draft pick Simon for the future on the reserve pup…there is a lot of speculation that Browner may not be affordable next year with sherman and thomas looking at new contracts soon…schneider is always a step ahead…that’s why Seattle can lose so many starters and still maintain a competitive edge…Thurman, Maxwell or Lane would be starting for many teams in the NFL this year….just sayin’
