Brandon Browner to miss 4-6 weeks with groin injury

We now have a number to go with the original diagnosis that Seahawks cornerback Brandon Browner would be out “quite a while.”

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said Monday that Browner would miss four to six weeks with a groin injury,via Terry Blount of ESPN.com.

“Hopefully, by the end of this week, we’ll know more,” Carroll said. “He had a pretty good exam [Monday], I know that. But he has a serious groin pull. It’s not just a pulled muscle. He has some tissue damage and stuff. It’s a severe groin pull. They are talking four to six weeks at best. That’s a long haul.”

Browner was injured against the Falcons, and didn’t play last week against the Vikings. If Carroll’s estimate holds, he could still get back before the end of the regular season, and that would make it worth keeping him around on the roster for the playoffs.
