Pete Carroll is hopeful the Seattle Seahawks will get starting cornerback Brandon Browner back in time for Sunday night’s NFC West showdown with San Francisco after he missed last week’s season opener against Carolina with a hamstring injury.
Walter Thurmond is on IR, but Browner returns to his spot opposite Richard Sherman, and Jeremy Lane and Byron Maxwell are more experienced after having filled in for Browner over the last three weeks.
Walter Thurmond joins suspended corners Brandon Browner and injured Marcus Trufant on the sideline, and WR Charly Martin was place on IR. The good news: Sidney Rice will play.
The Buffalo Bills replaced Marshawn Lynch in 2010 with first-round pick C.J. Spiller, and since then Lynch has merely rushed for 3,043 yards and 27 touchdowns in 40 games for the Seattle Seahawks.
The Seattle Seahawks put up perhaps its most dominating performance in franchise history, rushing for a season-high 284 yards while creating eight turnovers and setting a team record for points.
The Seattle Seahawks are down two of their top three corners this week, and could be without all three as soon as next week, leaving Walter Thurmond and a bunch of young guys to hold up the back end.
