A few notes and video from defensive coordinator Dan Quinn

Seahawks defensive coordinator Dan Quinn met the media after practice today and talked about the return of Brandon Browner to practice, missing Ken Norton Jr. after the death of his father on Wednesday, and more.

Here are a few highlights:

— Norton was not at practice today and Quinn said there is no “permanent schedule” of how long he will be gone saying that “I’m sure we will know more tonight. … our thoughts and prayers are with him and his family and we are thinking of him.”

— Cornerback Brandon Browner was back at practice today and Quinn said “he looks really strong, so you can tell how hard he has worked to come back from an injury and you wouldn’t expect anything different from BB.” However, he said no determination on if Browner will play against the Jaguars will be made  until after practice Friday.

Chris Clemons continues to practice and Quinn said he is “getting stronger and doing it and you can feel the energy he brings out to the field and to practice and the attitude and style he plays with.”

— Asked about going against Gus Bradley, his predecessor as Seahawks defensive coordinator, Quinn said: “Number one, outstanding coach. But any time you get in this league you go against friends on this team or that team, so it’ along those lines where you are coaching against a guy you have high respect for, a friend. It’s not uncommon the way coaches move around, although this one is different in the way Gus was so familiar with everybody here.” He said he still talks regularly with Bradley but wouldn’t this week until after the game.

Here’s some video of Quinn’s session with the media today:
