The Seahawks had just about everything go their way in Sunday’s 33-10 pasting of the Falcons.
An injury to cornerback Brandon Browner was the rare exception and it looks like it is one that they’ll have to deal with for more than a couple of days. Browner hurt his groin and coach Pete Carroll said Monday that the team is preparing for an extended absence.
“Browner’s hurt. He’s going to be down for a bit,” Carroll said in an interview with ESPN 710. “We don’t how extensive it is, but it could be quite a while.”
Walter Thurmond took on a bigger role when Browner left Sunday’s game, just as he did when Browner missed the first two games of the regular season, and Byron Maxwell will also be in line for more playing time. The Seahawks didn’t suffer too much during Browner’s previous absence, which may mean that the impending free agent will be headed elsewhere for 2014 and beyond.
