Cliff Avril ready for Seahawks debut

Pete Carroll will get to test out his new toy for the first time on Sunday, with defensive end Cliff Avril expected to play against NFC West rival San Francisco.

However, the Seattle Seahawks’ coach likely will not see Brandon Browner manning the right cornerback position of his talented secondary.

Carroll told reporters after practice on Friday that his team’s top free-agent acquisition – Avril – should play for the first time this year on Sunday. He’s been dealing with a nagging hamstring injury since training camp, missing all of exhibition play and Seattle’s season-opening win at Carolina.

But, for Sunday, Avril is listed as probable on Seattle’s injury report.

“He could have played last week,” Carroll said. “Now he comes back and puts another week behind him, and went all the reps and took full-speed work. So we know he’s ready to go.”

Avril said he’s looking forward to experiencing – and benefiting – from the noise created at CenturyLink Field.

“I can’t wait just to get in front of the home crowd,” he said. “Hopefully I can make a few big plays and just show them what I can bring to the team.”

Along with Avril, tight end Luke Willson (oblique), offensive lineman Michael Bowie (shoulder), receiver Sidney Rice (knee), defensive tackle Brandon Mebane (ankle) and defensive tackle Tony McDaniel (groin) all fully participated in practice Friday and are probable for the Seahawks on Sunday.

McDaniel returned to practice after missing Thursday’s workout.

The news on the injury front wasn’t as good for Browner, who did not practice all week due to a hamstring injury, and likely will miss his second straight game.

Browner was listed as doubtful for Sunday.
