The Seahawks have concluded their final local work at the VMAC and are heading to the airport and Washington, D.C., for their Sunday playoff opener against the Redskins.
After the workout, coach Pete Carroll said the team was about as healthy as possible. At cornerback, Jeremy Lane (sore knee) practiced and Carroll seemed encouraged by what he’s seen of Brandon Browner.
“We’re about as healthy as we can get,” he said. “The two guys on the list running back Marshawn Lynch and cornerback Lane) are both probable, and everybody else is going. We’ve got some issues to figure out who is up and down, but we’re very, very fortunate. You’re going to look at the same 11 on both sides who started the season, so we’re very fortunate.”
Carroll said he can’t recall having a team this healthy at the end of a regular season.
More on Browner: ) “He’s knocking off the rust and trying to get back. This late in the season, the tempo of practice isn’t as high as it is earlier in the year, so he doesn’t get as much work. We’ve got to bring him on slowly. We’ll be ready in case he gets tired or something. He seems to be in great shape. He ran the whole time that he was off. Everything looks fine; we’ve just got to watch him.”
