Seahawks Injury Report: Russell Okung Returns To Limited Practice

Seattle Seahawks offensive tackle Russell Okung returned to practice for the first time Thursday, albeit as a limited participant, after bruising his left knee against the Arizona Cardinals, according to the official injury report released by the team.

"Okung got his first work of the week after bruising his left knee on the final drive of Sunday's opener against the Cardinals, but it was limited to individual drills and Frank Omiyale continued to work at left tackle."

Okung's status for Sunday's game against the Dallas Cowboys remains in question, but according to a report in Sports Illustrated, coach Pete Carroll expects Okung to play despite being a limited participant in most practices this week.

If Okung can't play, though, Omiyale will start at left tackle. This is significant because Omiyale will be charged with protecting the blind side of rookie quarterback Russell Wilson and blocking All-Pro defensive end Demarcus Ware.
