Liz Mathews of 710 ESPN’s Seahawks Blog writes with updates on two injured Seattle Seahawks: linebacker Leroy Hill and rookie offensive lineman Russell Okung.
In team injury news, Leroy Hill was the only player who came home injured from the game. Carroll reported that it was a strained calf, and that Hill is in a boot and will be out for “a bit.”
Okung, Seattle’s prized first round draft pick, suffered a high ankle sprain during the preseason was initially expected back for Week 1 but is reportedly still in the recovery process, Mathews writes.
And as of this week, Russell Okung will be running “on land” instead of working out on the treadmill.
“This would mean if he handles it well this week, then next week he has a chance to start practicing with us and really get going,” said Carroll. “I can’t tell you what that means until we see him but that’s a good sign. So we’re feeling real good about it, he’s excited about it and wants to get going.”
