No Brandon Browner or Percy Harvin for Seahawks

AP

The Seahawks have played a good chunk of this season without cornerback Brandon Browner and almost all of it without wide receiver Percy Harvin, which should leave them well prepared to play without them on Sunday against the 49ers. 

Coach Pete Carroll said Friday that both players have been ruled out for Week 14. It’s not a particularly surprising turn of events for Harvin, who didn’t practice at all this week and had a cortisone injection last week in hopes of alleviating soreness in his surgically repaired hip. Todd Dybas of the Tacoma News Tribune reports that Carroll said he hopes Harvin can play next week

Browner was able to practice on Wednesday, but Carroll said his groin injury didn’t hold up well in the return to work. Browner’s still waiting to hear a ruling on his appeal of a suspension under the league’s substance abuse policy. If it is successful, Browner could still return to help the team this season but he’s likely played his final game with the team if the suspension stands. 

Linebacker Bruce Irvin, who missed practice with a thigh injury, is expected to be in the lineup.

  1. well it’s a seahawks post so here come the PED comments; before you post them please note that beloved Peyton’s team in Denver and the Giants in NY have more PED suspensions over the past few seasons than the Seattle Seahawks.

    Thank you drive through! Sorry about facts.

  2. The Seahawks should be embarrassed the way the Vikings fleeced them.

    A future all-pro shut down cornerback & another 3 round pick next year for an injury prone, 50$ million dollar contract WR who has two catches this season.

    Percy will never play a full season or reap any benefit to the team, I promise you that.

    Percy’s contract will also cause the Seahawks too much cap spade when they have to sign Russell, Earl Thomas & your other young players and you’re team will be destroyed by then

    While Minnesota prospers, and turns into a superbowls contender, the Seahawks will fall apart in front of our eyes.

  3. Sounds like selfish Percy was more interested in trying to stick it to the Vikings by coming back too early and less interested in making sure he was healthy for a SuperBowl run.

  4. “While Minnesota prospers, and turns into a superbowls contender, the Seahawks will fall apart in front of our eyes.”

    You just said the 3 funniest things I’ve heard in months.

    In all seriousness though, the Hawks have totally come apart at the seams without Harvin. It’s been a disaster.

    Oh, and I’m curious who the shut down all pro corner is? On the 30th ranked passing defense?

  5. We don’t need either guy to make this a competitive game. This will be our toughest game of the season though.

    Oh yea if harvin was on peds wouldn’t that mean he d be playing? The cheating thru enhancement drugs arguement doesn’t hold weight this season. We are winning without cheating. Stop hating.

  6. Holy crap people, did a Vikings fan just attempt to brag about giving teams thru a trade? Ya might wanna google Herschel walker trade.
    By the way we’re winning without harvin. What have those picks done for Minnesota? 3-8-1

  7. Haha @ the Vikings fleecing Seattle. Last I checked one team was bound for the #1 seed in the playoffs and the other wishing there were any worth while qbs in the upcoming draft.

  8. “well it’s a seahawks post so here come the PED comments; before you post them please note that beloved Peyton’s team in Denver and the Giants in NY have more PED suspensions over the past few seasons than the Seattle Seahawks.

    Thank you drive through! Sorry about facts.”

    Let’s talk facts buddy… no… I repeat no Bronco has been suspended for using PED’s this season. Von Miller was suspended for smoking pot.

  9. Seattle is 10-1 w/o Harvin playing.
    Seattle is 1-0 in games Harvin played in, albeit, limited snaps.

    Seattle doesn’t need Harvin to play to win games. However, he would be an addition that would help the team better accomplish its mission.

    Personally, I didn’t/don’t like the trade. I feel they gave up too much. Right now it looks that way. But, if he plays in every game the remainder of his contract, and lives up to the contract, then the trade would appear like a good one. Only time will tell.

    It’s funny an Vikings fan (whizanator, house boat parties with hookers and drugs), and a Steeler fan, (steroids, HGH use, a QB accused rape), keep yapping about another teams issues.

    But it’s a Seahawk article. Any time a Seahawk article is posted you’re sure to find pftpoet as amongst the first posters with a PED comment. Same with steelersaregodsteam.Regardless of the subject of the article.

    Play on fellas…play on…

    If your team peaked earlier in the season, then maybe they would be playing in January

  13. As a 49er fan, I sure could have done without Vernon Davis playing the “statement game” card. Unfortunately it seems that whenever the Niners get the run game going, the passing game disappears and vice-versa. Seattle certainly doesn’t need any extra incentives to take it to SF. At this point the Niners need the win to just keep up in the playoff race. It’s HIGHLY unlikely they steal the division from Seattle at this point. Bummer about Browner and Harvin, but it’s not like they’re struggling w/out them all season.

  14. Hey poet, maybe your genius GM can use that third round pick to acquire a 108.5 rating, in-the-discussion-for-MVP franchise QB, eh?

    Doesn’t seem like reaching in the first round for fourth-round QB talent really did the trick for you guys, did it?

    seansds3d: You are partially correct. No Broncos have failed PED tests this season. Neither have any Seahawks.

    However, Miller’s substance-abuse arrest was compounded by two games from four to six because he supposedly attempted to use a non-human specimen, and/or bribe the testing official. So it wasn’t just “smoking pot”.

    That’s true. However, if you’ve been a consistent reader on this site, you would know that some of the more ignorant posters on here equate marijuana with PEDS.

    At least when the Seahawks are involved.

  17. 49-10 NINERS! wilson throws 3 picks, a.smith gets 3 sacks, crabtree and davis 100+ yards receiving! KAP establishes himself as the second coming of montana and wins the super bowl this year. The first of many many super bowls go niners!!

  18. Byron Maxwell played just fine in the secondary and, hell, Ricardo Lockette had 27 and 33 yard receptiona in back to back games. Next man up actually means something in Seattle. And for those talking about peaking too soon, well, Seattle’s valleys have still beaten a lot of your teams. Niners ask who’s got it better than us? Seahawks ask who is better than us?

  19. Steelers= irrelevant
    Vikings= irrelevant

    What is relevant is that we’ll have some smashmouth football brought to you by the two best teams in the NFC West!

    GO HAWKS!!!!

    I, too, am a 49er fan but I have to say that your post sounds frightfully like something logicalvoice, pftpoet or steelersaregods team might say. (but I do hope you’re right)

  21. PFT Poet Says “While Minnesota prospers, and turns into a superbowls contender, the Seahawks will fall apart in front of our eyes”
    ****

    ahhhh, the ramblings of envy has but one place to salve the wounds of humility…a hypothetical future where events are uncertain. To look at the vikings past and present is to look into the face of despair. Better to create a utopian future than to suffer the reality of a forlorn franchise with little prospects of future triumph. Pity the poet for he knows not that the Seahawks Empire is upon him…and will devour his groveling soul.

  22. Personally, I think it’s hilarious that SF sent their season ticket holders a 3-step letter describing how to cheer for their team. Are they really that dumb? Joe Montana is rolling over in his grave.

  23. Xavier Rhodes is a future All Pro shutdown corner? He cracked the starting lineup on the 30th ranked pass defense in week 9 due to an injury. Good one.

    Harvin’s 50 mil contract only has 14.5 mil guaranteed. If he remains hurt they can dump him. He’s just gravy on an already loaded team, deserving to be SB favs at this point.

    Every team, save for one, ALWAYS chokes in the playoffs.

    At least by your definition.

    our niners need this one! think about what this W would mean..the seattle P.E.D fans would have nothing…no 2 game winning streak and STILL NO SUPERBOWLS..i just hope the equipment manager forgets to pack the P.E.Ds..

  28. Who cares?

    The 9ers haven’t beaten a great team all seasi
    season and it doesnt change in
    sunday. Lost to Hawks, Colts, Panthers
    and Saints.

    9ers beat up on the lil sisters of the
    poor bcuz Kaeperjack is a below avg QB.

    Hawks won’t need Browner or Harvin to
    dispose of Kaep and the 9ers.

  29. as a vikes fan it was tough to see Percy go, he is a phenomenal talent. the first round pick, Rhodes, has been playing very well the last few games and could pan out but if Percy returns to pre-injury form he is special.
    harvin wanted out and made it happen, glad we received anything for him. I like spielman overall but the depth the Seattle gm has built is impressive.

    NO Seahawks have been suspended for taking PED’s this season either. What’s your point? The original poster’s comment was “in the past few seasons”. Selective wording doesn’t make your point a fact. You must have some government healthcare to sell me as well?

    Brother, I hope this is a great game. I will be rooting for my Hawks as I am sure you’ll be for the 9ers. First score regardless of which team, I will take a swig in your honor; it’s nice to read a post from a rival that is not full of bile. Cheers, brother, and happy hunting.

  37. Not having Browner, Thurmond, or Harvin isn’t what worries me about this game against the 9ers. What worries me is that the Seahawks don’t necessarily need to win this game. Plus coming off such a dominating win that clinched a playoff berth, it’s easy to let your guard down a little and rest on your laurels a bit.

    On the flip side, the 9ers NEED to win this game. They’ve been embarrassed twice in a row by the Seahawks and they’re at home. You can bet they’re going to come in as fired up as they’ve ever been and go all out to win this one.

    Should be a great game though and as chippy and emotional as it can get between divisional rivals. As a Seahawk fan, of course I want the Seahawks to destroy them, but the realist in me doesn’t see it happening. It’ll be a close battle and could go either way. Saints, Panthers, Cards, and any other wild card contender will all be pulling for Seattle. Can’t wait!

    ———————————-

    We need more sanity. Regardless of the outcome of Sunday’s game, it appears a significant section of the losing fanbase is going to be beyond angry/depressed/maniacal/whatever.

    Chill. It’s just a game.

  40. I love Russell Wilson and Seattle as a city. My one problem with the team is the head coach. The way he left USC right before the sanctions after years of saying he wouldn’t leave still seems fishy to say the least to me. There’s been plenty of other rumors about him too that don’t exactly make him look great. Just seems like kind of a scumbag.

  41. thepftpoet…..get a life dude. Move out of your parent’s basement, get a girl to acknowledge your presence and worry about your own team. Don’t hate on Seattle on EVERY post…..idiot.

  42. @khenien

    Obviously you’re not a fan of the Hawks. Loving RW and the city is fine, but either you’re with the total program or you’re not. The Seahawks team that is on the field today, including the 11-1 record, is all because of Pete Carroll and John Schneider, and the wisdom of Paul Allen, in bringing them to Seattle.

    Call him what you will, I don’t agree. Of course I rather imagine that you’d also like to see the demise of A Better Los Angeles, and A Better Seattle too, because of their connections to him.
