Seahawks Injury Report: Russell Okung Still Battling Back From Knee Bruise

Left tackle Ruseell Okung is still battling a knee issue that caused him to miss the Week 2 victory over the Dallas Cowboys in the Seahawks' home opener, according to the Seattle Times' Seattle Seahawks beat writer Danny O'Neil. The report goes on to state that he could be back as soon as Week 3 to face the Green Bay Packers at Century Link Field.

Head coach Pete Carroll sounded optimistic about Okung's status. When asked if he thought the former Oklahoma State All-American would be ready for the Week 3 game he replied, "I think so. I think he should be. It was close enough that he should be able to make it particularly with a couple of days here where we can rest him."

Frank Omiyale started in Okung's place against the Cowboys. In Okung's absence, the running game was still effective for Seattle. Running back Marshawn Lynch had a strong output of 122 yards on 26 carries and amassed a 4.7-yard average while scoring one touchdown on the ground en route to the team's 27-7 win.
