Tight end Zach Miller and offensive lineman Russell Okung are expected to play in the Seahawks' Monday Night matchup with the Green Bay Packers, according to reporter Curtis Crabtree. In addition, cornerback Byron Maxwell could be out with a hamstring injury suffered in the second half last Sunday.
The health of Miller and Okung will be imperative to Seattle's success against the Packers defensive front led by stalwart Clay Matthews.
Carroll said they will need to use TEs and RBs to help block Clay Matthews to try and keep him from being a factor.— Curtis Crabtree (@Curtis_Crabtree) September 20, 2012
Miller played through an undisclosed foot injury last week in a victory over the Dallas Cowboys, but has been limited in practice. Though Okung did test it out a bruised knee beforehand, the left tackle sat out of Sunday's win. Maxwell has been banged up early and often this season. He didn't play in Week 1 against the Arizona Cardinals because of a shoulder injury.
