Seattle Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said Wednesday the club is still awaiting word on any possible discipline coming for cornerback Brandon Browner, who might be healthy enough to return to practice this week.

''I don't know. We have no control over it,'' Carroll said. ''We don't know. We have no timeline. We're just waiting to get him ready. He's healthy enough to get back on the field some and we'll see how it goes.''

Carroll said that Browner has progressed quicker than expected from a groin injury suffered in Week 10 at Atlanta. At first it appeared to be at least a six-week injury, Carroll said, but Browner has responded to treatment faster than first believed.

As for a possible suspension awaiting Browner, Carroll said the team has no idea when word might be coming from the NFL.

''Early on we couldn't tell you about the injury because he had a significant groin tear but he managed it really well and it was in a place that we found out he could recover quickly. We thought he was out a solid six weeks when it happened,'' Carroll said. ''He's just responded tremendously. He's on the roster and he's ready to compete for us if he can get back to practice this week. We'll do this one day at a time and we'll see where it fits.''

Seattle is thin in the secondary with Browner injured and Walter Thurmond serving a four-game suspension for violating the league's substance-abuse policy. Byron Maxwell and Jeremy Lane filled in for the pair and played well in the Seahawks' 34-7 win over New Orleans on Monday night.

Carroll also said Percy Harvin was expected to run in practice Wednesday, but he was unsure if Harvin would be healthy enough to play Sunday at San Francisco. Harvin didn't play in Monday night's win over New Orleans as he continued to have soreness in his surgically repaired hip after making his season debut in Week 11 against Minnesota.

Carroll said Harvin has been treated for the inflammation in the hip but that it's unknown when he will return to the field.
