RENTON, Wash. (AP) — Starting Seattle cornerback Brandon Browner will be listed as doubtful for the Seahawks headed into their Sunday night NFC West showdown against San Francisco.
Seattle coach Pete Carroll said Browner was not able to get as much work in as the team hoped this week as he recovered from a hamstring injury. If Browner can’t go, Walter Thurmond will get his second straight start at cornerback with Byron Maxwell also getting significant time.
Defensive end Chris Clemons (knee) will be listed as questionable, but Carroll still believes he’s a week or two away. Clemons went through contact drills for the first time this week.
Cliff Avril (hamstring) made it through the week healthy and is expected to start at defensive end. Defensive tackles Tony McDaniel and Brandon Mebane are also both probable.
