Carroll: Browner could practice, Harvin’s status unknown

Cornerback Brandon Browner could return to practice on Wednesday after missing the last two games with a groin injury, but coach Pete Carroll offered no new details on Browner’s appeal of his one-year suspension when he met with the media prior to practice.

Browner is appealing a one-year suspension for violating the league’s substance-abuse policy, reportedly for marijuana. Carroll said Browner has a chance to play again this season “if he can get back to practice this week. I don’t know if he can. We’ll figure it out…I can’t go any farther than one day at a time because I don’t know anymore than you guys know.”

Carroll said he also didn’t have any updated timetable for when he expects to hear a ruling on Browner’s appeal from the league. Last week, Carroll said he thought he might hear from the league by Wednesday, but added that wasn’t definitive.

Harvin’s status still unknown: Carroll also said wide receiver Percy Harvin had a procedure done on his hip to “make sure he was relieved of any kind of inflammation. He’s in good shape now.” That procedure has been confirmed as a cortisone shot.

Carroll said Harvin won’t practice on Wednesday, but he will run and test his hips. The team will see how he responds from that on Thursday.

Injury notes:

  • Bruce Irvin (thigh) will go easy during the week, but Carroll said he’s expected to play on Sunday.
  • Golden Tate had his hip banged up against New Orleans and will take it easy early in the week, but he’s also expected to play.
