The Seahawks played without wide receiver Percy Harvin and cornerback Brandon Browner against the Giants in Week 15, but they didn’t miss them much at all.
Seattle rolled to an easy 23-0 win at the stadium that will host the Super Bowl, which would be the next time the Seahawks will have to play on the road this season if they win home field in the NFC as expected. During his Monday press conference, coach Pete Carroll was asked about whether or not Harvin and Browner would be available to help the team try to lock up home field this weekend. Carroll said that there wouldn’t be any updates until later in the week.
“We’ll find out on Wednesday. [Browner’s] got two days of running here to see how he does and we’ll see what happens. We don’t know,” Carroll said, via the Tacoma News Tribune.
Browner’s suspension appeal is still pending, leaving him available to play as long as his groin is healthy enough to be on the field. Carroll said the condition of his hip has fluctuated, leaving him week-to-week until he can resume a practice schedule.
