More Browner details emerge

Mike Garafolo of FoxSports.com has additional details in an updated story this afternoon of Brandon Browner’s appeal of his proposed suspension.

Specifically, Browner is contending that a damaged cup should invalidate the urine sample that led to the failed test in September.

The story states:

Browner is claiming the urine collector used a damaged cup and then poured his urine from that cup into another one. However, the source said Browner’s request to have the collector testify as part of the appeal hearings was denied, with the league’s medical director stating he spoke to the collector, who disputed Browner’s account.

As noted in the earlier blog post on this, Seattle is waiting for finality on this before deciding whether to put Browner on injured reserve and sign a different cornerback or hope that Browner can return this year.

For now, it appears this won’t be resolved until next week.
