Seahawks left tackle Russell Okung, whose ankle-sprain tally has now reached three, suffered his most recent ankle injury during the preseason opener. He’s expected to be back on the field this weekend, when the Seahawks travel to San Francisco for the first round of the NFL-level Pete Carroll/Jim Harbaugh feud.
“He looks good, he’s ready to go,” Carroll said of Okung, via John Boyle of HeraldNet.com. “He practiced enough last week to let us know that he would be ready this week. He worked really hard in pregame the other night, he was dying to play, but we wouldn’t put him in, we wanted a few more days. He practiced full [go] today, and he’s ready to go for this game.”
The sixth overall pick in the 2010 draft, Okung was limited to 10 regular-season games last season. He started both postseason games.
