Russell Okung Has Low Ankle Sprain, X-Rays Negative

Initial tests show Russell Okung's ankle sprain doesn't appear to be too severe. Okung went down after being rolled-up on during the Seahawks first possession, limping off the field and being taken to the locker room. NFL.com's Jason LaCanfora is reporting x-rays were negative and it was only a low ankle sprain, a much better diagnosis than the dread high ankle sprain he had on his right ankle earlier this year.

Okung won't return today, but the recovery timetable for a low ankle sprain is much better than the alternative.
