Seahawks' Brandon Browner (groin) out 4 to 6 weeks

Seattle Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said last week that Brandon Browner would be out "quite a while" after suffering a groin injury in a Week 10 win over the Atlanta Falcons.

Carroll offered an updated report on the standout cornerback's condition Monday.

"Hopefully, by the end of this week, we'll know more," Carroll said, via ESPN.com. "He had a pretty good exam (Monday), I know that. But he has a serious groin pull. It's not just a pulled muscle. He has some tissue damage and stuff. It's a severe groin pull. They are talking four to six weeks at best. That's a long haul."

A six-week recovery would get Browner back on the field in Week 16 against the Arizona Cardinals. If the process takes longer -- and it certainly sounds as if that's a possibility -- Browner still could have a role in the postseason. A first-round bye in the playoffs would help as well, obviously.

Browner has been replaced by Walter Thurmond, who is playing well. He returned an interception 29 yards for a touchdown in Sunday's 41-20 win over the Minnesota Vikings.

The "Legion of Boom" -- like the Seahawks as a whole -- seem incapable of being compromised.
