Seahawks CB Brandon Browner out against Saints with groin injury

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

The Seahawks will be limited in coverage with Brandon Browner out of the lineup on Monday Night Football.

The Seahawks are suffering injuries and suspensions to their secondary at the worst time. Seattle cornerback Brandon Browner has been listed as "out" against the Saints with a groin injury. Browner is already facing a one-year suspension for violating the league's substance abuse policy, but is appealing and was eligible to play in the game against New Orleans.

The Seahawks' secondary will be light against the high-scoring Saints. Fellow cornerback Walter Thurmond was suspended as well for failing the league's policy on substance abuse. Reserve defensive back and special teams ace Byron Maxwell is expected to start opposite Richard Sherman. Jeremy Lane and DeShawn Snead are also on the roster.

Seattle has yet to add another cornerback, so it could head into the game against New Orleans with just four healthy cornerbacks. The Seahawks will also be without wide receiver Percy Harvin on offense on Monday Night Football in Seattle.
