Brandon Browner doubtful vs. 49ers

By Bill Williamson

It looks like the San Francisco 49ers will be facing another secondary that is not at full strength Sunday.

Seattle Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said cornerback Brandon Browner is doubtful to play with a hamstring injury.

Last week, the 49ers played the Green Bay Packers, who were without cornerback Casey Hayward and safety Morgan Burnett. San Francisco quarterback Colin Kaepernick threw for a career high 412 yards in the 34-28 win.

Browner didn’t play last week at Carolina. He is being replaced by Walter Thurmond and Byron Maxwell. Browner is a big part of a strong Seattle secondary. At 6-4, Browner is matchup issue for teams. Facing the Seahawks without him will be a big advantage for the 49ers.
