The Seahawks survived the season’s opening week without rookie left tackle Russell Okung just fine. Now they’ll have to live without one of their young starting lineman for the rest of the season.
Seattle placed second-year guard Max Unger on injured reserve Tuesday with a toe injury, ending his season. They also released cornerback Kennard Cox, activated Leroy Hill from suspension, and re-signed offensive lineman Mansfield Wrotto.
Unger was a second round pick last year. He had a mixed rookie season at best, but the team was hoping he’d develop this year. Hill will not be a starter upon his return to the lineup.
