Seahawks CB Brandon Browner Activated; Walter Thurmond Placed On Injured Reserve
Brandon Browner is back after serving a four game suspension for violating the league's policy on performance enhancing substances. Pete Carroll confirmed that the Seahawks have added Browner back to their 53-man roster, and he'll fill the spot that came open with cornerback Walter Thurmond being placed on injured reserve with a hamstring injury.
"He's back in the building today, and it's good to have him back," Carroll said.
And while it seems likely that Browner will jump right back into his role as Seattle's starting right cornerback, Carroll admitted there is some concern about rust. When players are serving suspensions, they can't practice with the team, or even be at the team facilities, so no matter how much Browner has been working out on his own, he will have some catching up to do.
"I talked to him today," Carroll said. "He's here, he has worked out real hard and his weight's in shape. He feels fast and all of that, he's going to have fresh legs relative to guys who are 16 games into it. But we've got to see how he does, and fortunately we've got guys who can play. If he's not quite right or if he doesn't get off to a good start during the week, we've got other guys who can play for him. But we're going to give him a heck of a chance to play. We're thrilled to get him back, so we'll see what happens."
