Seattle Seahawks Week One Starters And Injury Updates

Pete Carroll talked about the opening-week lineup today, while also giving a few updates on players sitting out with injuries.

The Seattle PI's Greg Johns relayed an update on Russell Okung's ankle injury via Twitter this afternoon.

The news on Okung certainly isn't encouraging. What was thought to be a minor injury is sure taking its time to heal. Also of note, Carroll had no idea his starting left tackle was named Tyler Polumbus, repeatedly calling him "Troy" while addressing reporters.

Curtis Crabtree, of 950 KJR, also relayed the news that Mike Williams will start at the 'X' receiver position against the 49ers.

With T.J. Houshmandzadeh's release, it was always assumed Mike Williams would step into his place. Now the move is official and Williams gets his chance to shine.

The Seahawks open the season Sunday at 1 p.m. against the San Francisco 49ers.
