Russell Okung Injury: Major Knee Injury Avoided, According To Report

La Canfora is reporting that Okung's ailment is merely a bone bruise with no ligament damage, which should be music to Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson's ears. While injuries of this nature can be quite painful, it appears likely that Okung will be ready to protect to rookie signal caller's blindside from DeMarcus Ware next weekend against the Dallas Cowboys at home.

Okung went down on Seattle's final drive of the game against Arizona and didn't return after limping off the field.
