Seattle's Browner returns from suspension
RENTON, Wash. (AP) — Brandon Browner didn't mind being forced to sit out the final four games of the regular season due to suspension because it was fun watching his Seattle Seahawks continue to roll toward the postseason.
"It was fun because we were kicking everyone's butt. I was missing not playing with the guys but it was awesome to watch from that perspective," Browner said Thursday, speaking for the first time since returning from his four-game suspension for using a banned substance. "The progression of our quarterback is awesome. He's playing like one of the elite quarterbacks and the defense is playing lights out. They're playing like when I left. They didn't skip a beat."
Browner, Seattle's starting cornerback the last two seasons, is expected to play Sunday in Seattle's playoff opener at Washington for the first time since early December when he dropped the appeal of his suspension and went to the sideline for the rest of the regular season. Coach Pete Carroll has not said whether Browner would start, concerned that he might be a bit rusty after four weeks away from the Seahawks facility.
Browner originally began the process of appealing his suspension, but dropped it the week after Seattle's 23-17 overtime win at Chicago in Week 13.
