Seattle may find its playoff hopes impossible as both starting corner-backs recently tested positive for performance-enhancing drugs. Richard Sherman and Brandon Browner both face four-game suspensions for the violation.
Sherman and Browner both intend to appeal the test. The exact substance for which the players tested positive for has not been identified.
The loss of Sherman and Browner would severely hurt the Seahawks physical pass defense. We would expect more information to come early in the week. The Seahawks lost to Miami 24-21 on Sunday.
Sherman made headlines earlier this season after an exchange with Patriots quarterback Tom Brady.
