Greg Johns of SeattlePI.com has Monday’s update on rookie offensive lineman Russell Okung’s ankle injury.
Rookie Russell Okung was also out on the practice field watching from the sideline Monday for the first time since he sprained his right ankle 10 days earlier.
Coach Pete Carroll hasn’t shut the door on Okung being back in time for the Sept. 12 opener against the 49ers, though he admits that might just be his ultra-optimistic side coming out.
“I’m always hopeful,” Carroll said. “I’m optimistic that there’s a chance. We’ll hold that out until there isn’t. He’ll do everything he can to get right. It will be pretty special recovery if he’s able to do that, but who knows?”
