Quick Carroll press conference notes — Browner out 4-6 weeks

Seattle coach Pete Carroll said during his weekly Monday press conference today that cornerback Brandon Browner has a groin injury that will take 4-6 weeks to heal.

Carroll also said the injury includes tissue damage. Given that time frame, Browner is likely out for the remainder of the regular season.

Browner, however, remains on the active roster and the team now has a bye before returning to action Dec. 2 against New Orleans, so it does not need to makeĀ  roster move any time. Carroll said they will continue to evaluate Browner before deciding anything. Browner suffered the injury last week at Atlanta.

Carroll also said WR Jermaine Kearse suffered a concussion in Sunday’s win over the Vikings but that he should be able to play against the Saints.

Otherwise, the team has no significant injury issues and Carroll said the Seahawks are as healthy at this point in a season as any team he has coached.

Carroll said WR Percy Harvin was sore after playing 19 snaps against the Vikings, but nothing out of the ordinary. He also noted that OLs Russell Okung and Breno Giacomini were able to play essentially the entire game (the starters came out for the final two series) and came through it fine.

The Seahawks had meetings today but will now be off until next Monday. The NFL mandates at least four consecutive days off during the bye, including a Saturday.

Carroll said the team could have worked a day or two this week but that it instead will fit those days into next week, which will be a longer week of work with the game on a Monday night.

Carroll also said the defensive front seven played as well as it has all season in shutting down Adrian Peterson and Minnesota’s running game, saying DE Red Bryant played his best game as a Seahawk and that Tony McDaniel also stood out. He also said MLB Bobby Wagner appears back in the form he was before spraining his ankle against Indianapolis and is playing as well right now as he has at any point this season.

Carroll also said the return of Okung and Giacomini helped result in pass protection that was “the best it’s been” all season.

I’ll have more from Carroll later.

Here is some video of his press conference today:
