The Seattle Seahawks defense, which allowed an NFL-low 245 points in the regular season, will get a boost for the playoffs as several key players have returned. Cornerback Brandon Browner will play in Sunday's playoff game after serving a four-game suspension for violating the league's policy on performance-enhancing drugs.   Linebacker Leroy Hill, who was held out of the Seahawks regular season finale as precaution, practiced Wednesday without limitations, and cornerback Marcus Trufant returned last week after missing four games with a hamstring injury. “Marcus Trufant is okay and Leroy Hill is coming back," said coach Pete Carroll. Browner, a 2011 Pro Bowler started the first 12 games before getting suspended.  He practiced on Wednesday for the first time in a month.  He recorded six passes defended and three interceptions before his suspension, which have him still ranked second on the team in both stats. "Getting Brandon Browner back is a big deal to us," Carroll said. "He's been a big part of what we've done here and he's been a significant factor in the style that we play. So he comes back, and we'll see how he does. It's been a month, so we'll see how (rusty) he is."
