Seahawks’ Browner sidelined until at least mid-December

Renton,  WA (SportsNetwork.com)  – Seattle  Seahawks coach  Pete Carroll  said cornerback Brandon Browner could be sidelined for most of the remainder of the regular season with a groin injury.

Browner  missed this  past  Sunday’s  game against  Minnesota  because of  the problem.  He was  hurt in Week 10  against Atlanta and was further examined on Monday.

“He’s got a serious groin pull,” said Carroll on Monday. “It’s legit. It’s not just  a pulled  muscle. He had some  tissue damage and stuff. So it’s a severe groin pull. They’re talking four to six weeks, at best.”

The  10-1 Seahawks have  their bye this week and won’t play again until Dec. 2 against New Orleans.

Browner also missed the first two games of the season with a hamstring injury. He has one interception and 19 tackles in eight games.
