Russell Okung ruled out for Week Three

The Seahawks won’t have left tackle Russell Okung’s help when they try to beat the Jaguars on Sunday.

Coach Pete Carroll announced Wednesday that Okung’s toe injury will keep him out of the Week Three home contest. That wasn’t unexpected since Carroll said earlier this week that he didn’t think Okung would be well enough to play this week.

Carroll offered no further timetable for Okung’s return because he’s getting another opinion from doctors about how to make his way back from the injury. Paul McQuistan will move from left guard to left tackle against the Jags with James Carpenter replacing McQuistan in the starting lineup.

In other Seahawks injury news, Carroll said defensive end Chris Clemons and cornerback Brandon Browner are both day-to-day with the injuries that have kept them out of the first two games. Carroll added that if Clemons has another good week of practice, it will be hard to keep him from making his 2013 debut.

    Alvin Bailey looked good in preseason at LT. The Hawks will roll without Okung.

    Just to make it interesting with the Jags, Pete Carroll said that the team would play with only 4 lineman and Richard Sherman with a bullhorn on the sidelines.

    They could probably still win with no LT playing in that game.

    All I know is McQuistan looked as bad as you could be at LT last game. He did well a few years ago but thought Alvin Bailey is the reason Seattle felt so good about our back up lineman. Event to the point he could be our starting RT but I guess Breno stepped up. Offensive line and Wilson please get the passing game going so I can feel better about the Houston game.

    McQuistan was constantly burned by Smith on the edge. I dont see how their rookie OTs could do worse. Either the rookies are still too injured to play or they really suck.
