Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said during his regular Monday appearance on the team’s flagship radio station, 710 ESPN Seattle, that cornerback Brandon Browner could be out “quite a while.”
You can listen to the interview and read a synopsis here.
Browner hurt his groin early in Sunday’s 33-10 win at Atlanta. Walter Thurmond took over for Browner, with Byron Maxwell also getting a lot of time (in obvious passing situations Maxwell played outside and Thurmond moved to his usual inside spot).
Carroll also said DT Tony McDaniel, who came out with a hamstring injury, could have returned, obviously an indication he is likely to be able to play this week against Minnesota.
The Seahawks will have to activate Percy Harvin to the 53-man active roster today, and Carroll gave every indication there is a chance Harvin could play this week.
“He has made great progress,” Carroll said. “He’s really excited about getting back on the practice field. We’re quite a margin closer than we’ve been.”
We’ll have further updates when Carroll meets the media later this afternoon.
