Seahawks left tackle Russell Okung sustained a turf toe injury in Sunday night’s game vs. San Francisco, a league source told PFT.

Okung departed the game in the first half. He has been replaced by Paul McQuistan.

The 24-year-old Okung was the Seahawks’ No. 1 pick in 2010. He has been the club’s starting left tackle throughout his NFL career.

The Seahawks host the winless Jaguars next Sunday.

    Major blow for his career and Seahawks players & fans. Once HOF Ogden got that injury, it eventually ended his career.

    Take the Jacksonville game off, we don’t need you, or any starter.

    49er fan here, keeping it real. The Seahawks “Came with some knuckles!”. Sometimes you need to get punched in the nose. The Seahawks right now are the better team in the NFC west and we got ALOT of work to do. They completely owned us in every facet of the game tonight. Physically and mentally. Stupid penalties, Facemask sacks, and 41 yard PI calls. Our only highlight was a blocked punt that we got because we got an assist from the 12th man. Our 200 yard receiver last week was blanketed all game. Our O-Line was manhandled. We couldn’t shed blocks to stop Lynch. We deserved to lose. The one bright spot is that it is week 2 and there is still a ton of football left to be played. We meet again in week 14 and by then both teams will be different teams both for good and bad. Hopefully we can give Seattle the same choice in our house that they gave us in theirs, with or without Vaseline. Any other fan who says or thinks otherwise, tries to cry and complain about “none calls” and referee’s, and be closed minded or in denial is either related to Logicalvoice or Rush Limbaugh.

    Take next week off Okung. Turf toe can be tricky for these big men. I know we lost Unger to a full-season. But I was happy to see Okung standing on the sidelines.

    I’m a ‘Hawks fan and I could not be more excited about the way the game turned out tonight! But Russell Okung? He is perhaps the most talented offensive lineman in the NFL, but it doesn’t mean a thing if he’s hurt all the time. He’s like Michael Vick–an incredibly talented QB who has had only one 16-game season in his entire career.

    That sucks. Turf toe is no joke. Hope he heals quickly.

    I have the Seahawks D in fantasy, if they gave me 30 pts against the 49ers, is it realistic to assume they’ll get 45+ against the lowly Jags?

    Won’t be a laugher against the Jags. Tebow will be with them by then.
