2015 NFL Draft: Jared's Gems - Replacing Okung

The case for drafting a replacement for Russell Okung, and the surprising list of candidates. Russell Okung is not Walter Jones. A completely obvious, unfair, yet true, thing to say. We sort of knew Russell would never approach Walt’s talent, but I’m not sure many of us accounted for Okung never approaching Jones’ durability. After missing much of training camp coming back from a foot injury/surgery, we found out recently that Okung is playing through a torn labrum/shoulder injury suffered in the Denver game. Add it to the list that also includes high-ankle sprains in both legs from...

Bobby Wagner has turf toe, and other Seahawks injury updates

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll held his  regular Monday press conference at the VMAC to dissect the 30-23 loss to Dallas. And I'll have lots of that a little later. For now, I'll pass along the relevant personnel updates. And I'll begin with what may be the most ominous news --- that middle linebacker Bobby Wagner has turf toe. Wagner suffered the injury in the second quarter and played through it. But Carroll said today the injury could be similar to the one that cost Russell Okung eight games last season. "We’ll have to just take the next couple of days and see what that means but he’s...

Report: Russell Okung playing through torn labrum

Seahawks LT Russell Okung has a torn labrum in his shoulder, per a report by Q13's Aaron Levine. The injury was sustained Week 3 against the Broncos, and Okung left that game briefly before returning. "There's no official word on the extent of the tear, although it is believed to be significant," reports Levine. This doesn't help matters for Okung, who's also been battling to get back to full speed after sitting out the offseason with foot surgery. The Seahawks embattled left tackle has racked up a good amount of false start and holding penalties this season, which is a product, likely, of...

Report: Seahawks’ Russell Okung has torn labrum

The Seattle Seahawks offensive line has received its fair share of criticism this season, with fifth-year left tackle Russell Okung taking the brunt of the blame, but a report Monday helps explain Okung’s early seasons struggles.

Report: Okung has torn labrum in shoulder

Q13 Fox is reporting that Seattle starting left tackle Russell Okung has a torn labrum in his shoulder dating to an injury suffered against Denver. Okung left that game briefly with the injury but returned, and has played every snap of the last two games.

Okung has not been listed on the injury report, having been able to participate in practice since the injury. Okung has struggled with penalties the last two weeks, being called for five, and has seven for the season...

Waiting for the “real” Russell Okung; Richard Sherman says Dez Bryant “matters”

Waiting for the “real” Russell Okung; Richard Sherman says Dez Bryant “matters”

Who says your voice isn’t heard here? After reading the long discussions the last few weeks here about the current state of Russell Okung, I made it a point yesterday in Renton to explore what the Seahawks think of their linchpin left tackle through four games of this season. The story is in today’s News Tribune. I found the team is united in two beliefs: 1.) This isn’t the real Russell Okung, and 2.) The real one is on its way. “He’s about 80 percent, yeah. That’s fair,” offensive-line coach Tom Cable said Wednesday when asked him where Okung … Read more »
