Seahawks Injury Update: Russell Okung Hurt Again

The Seattle Seahawks offensive line might have suffered a significant loss when tackle Russell Okung went down late in the game. Okung suffered a leg injury and limped off the field.

The Okung injury was originally believed to be an ankle issue, but has now apparently become a knee problem, according to Danny O'Neil of the Seattle Times. Head coach Pete Carroll remains mum on the severity of the injury but there should be an update Monday from team headquarters in Renton, Wash.

This is Okung's third significant injury in his short career. Okung had ankle injuries in 2010, then tore his pectoral muscle near the end of the 2011 season and was placed on injured reserve. Okung's backup at offensive tackle is Frank Omiyale, as he's listed as the primary backup at tackle on either side of the line. Omiyale was signed by the Seahawks this offseason after being released by the Chicago Bears.
