RENTON – Seahawks cornerback Brandon Browner returned to practice Wednesday, but coach Pete Carroll offered no details on Browner’s appeal of his one-year suspension when he met with the media before practice.
Browner has missed the past two games with a groin injury and practiced for the first time since the Atlanta game on Nov. 10. He was listed as limited on the team’s injury report.
Browner is appealing a one-year suspension for violating the league’s substance-abuse policy, reportedly for marijuana. Carroll said Browner has a chance to play again this season “if he can get back to practice this week. I don’t know if he can. We’ll figure it out. … I can’t go any farther than one day at a time because I don’t know any more than you guys know.”
Carroll said he also didn’t have any updated timetable for when he expected to hear a ruling on Browner’s appeal from the league. Carroll said last week he thought he might hear from the league by Wednesday but added that wasn’t definitive.

Carroll also said wide receiver Percy Harvin had a procedure done on his hip to “make sure he was relieved of any kind of inflammation. He’s in good shape now.”
That procedure has been confirmed as a cortisone shot.
Harvin didn’t practice again on Wednesday, but he did run to test his hip. The team will see how he responds on Thursday.
