Seahawks Injury Report: Russell Okung Doesn't Practice, Status Unclear

Seattle Seahawks left tackle Russell Okung won't practice Wednesday, but head coach Pete Carroll is hopeful Okung could play on Sunday against the Dallas Cowboys. If Okung isn't recovered enough from a bruised knee suffered against Arizona in Week 1, veteran Frank Omiyale will take his place, Carroll told the Seahawks' blog.

"Frank is an equipped player," said Carroll. "He's started on both sides [of the line]. We won't change much there if he goes instead of Russell [Okung]."

The possibility of Okung missing Sunday's game could still be detrimental for the sake of bodies more than anything. The Cardinals' defensive front seven pressured quarterback Russell Wilson fairly well last week, and the Seahawks face a more impressive opponent in Dallas, who won in tidy fashion against the New York Giants.

DeMarcus Ware eclipsed 100 sacks for his career thanks to two that dropped Giants quarterback Eli Manning. He was the second-fastest player to reach the 100-sack mark behind only Reggie White.
