The Seahawks are likely to be without starting cornerback Brandon Browner, one-fourth of the famed Legion of Boom, for some time with a groin injury suffered last week.
The good news is that the Seahawks may be as deep as any team in the NFL at cornerback.
Seattle’s other starting corner, Richard Sherman, continues to play at a high level — according to Pro Football Focus, he did not have a pass thrown his way in 36 coverage snaps against the Falcons Sunday.
PFF also graded Walter Thurmond, who now steps into the starter’s role with Browner out, as having “a very good day” against Atlanta as he allowed just 45 yards in 10 passes thrown his way.
