Russell Okung Limps Off, Taken To Locker Room With A Knee Injury

Rookie left tackle Russell Okung, already hampered by an ankle injury, lasted all of one series for the Seahawks today before limping off the field with an apparent knee or ankle injury. Okung was rolled up on by tight end Chris Baker on the play, experiencing a bit of friendly fire in the pile. Okung has left the field and is headed to the locker room for further tests.

Okung played well last week against the Chicago Bears, keeping defensive end Julius Peppers in check all game long. The Seahawks have high hopes for Okung, but his durability is leaving something to be desired so far.

Tyler Polumbus is in for Okung at left tackle. We’ll keep you updated on Okung’s status as the game progresses.
