Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll joined Danny O’Neil of 710 ESPN Seattle to talk about the health of his team heading into Sunday’s game at Carolina.

Listen to the conversation here.

Carroll said that cornerback Brandon Browner will be questionable with a hamstring injury. However, starting defensive tackles Brandon Mebane (groin) and Tony McDaniel (groin) are expected to play.

Carroll also said that defensive end Chris Clemons and Cliff Avril are on the verge of getting back. Avril was a full participant in practice on Thursday, returning from a lingering hamstring issue.

And Clemons continues to look strong returning from ACL knee surgery in January, although he was listed as having not practiced on Thursday. Clemons participated in some early work at the beginning of practice both days this week.

  1. Every team has injuries. Our team strength is our depth. I’d rather get BB healthy for game 2 as hamstrings tend to linger. Go hawks.

  2. Completely forgot to look for Moffitt with Denver last night. Did anyone notice if he played?

  3. seahawksteven777 says:

    Moffitt did not play. He was an inactive.

  4. Great to hear his rehab is going well, but please don’t rush Clem back too early.

    Its interesting to me that with Browner possibly not playing they would move Thurmond to the outside and have Maxwell play the slot. My two thoughts are 1) why move Thurmond? He played the slot all training camp, leave him there and 2) why Maxwell and not Lane? It seemed that Lane was ahead of Maxwell last year. Anyway, great to have such terrific DB depth.

  5. good questions, blocis. I would assume that WTIII is next in line for the outside CB position because that puts him on the field for every snap, not just in nickel.

    We know WTIII is a demon at the nickel CB, but I don’t really have a good feel for how good Maxwell is there defending the crossing routes. Its always possible that WTII starts outside and then goes to nickel CB when a third CB comes in.

  6. blocis–They may go with Lane, but Lane struggled in the slot, he played best at outside corner. ALso, Maxwell outplayed Lane dramatically in the slot and outside during preseason this year.
