The one thing we don’t want to see whenever we watch a preseason game is an injury to a key player. It took only a few minutes of preseason football before we saw our first injury to a key player.
Seahawks offensive tackle Russell Okung limped off the field and was carted to the locker room in the first quarter of today’s game at San Diego.
Okung appeared to have suffered a left ankle injury. Last season Okung suffered injuries to both ankles, first in the preseason and then in Week Seven of the regular season, and missed six games.
Okung was the sixth overall pick of the 2010 NFL draft and started all 10 of the games he was healthy enough to play.
