Russell Okung has a high ankle sprain

Last night, we mentioned that Seahawks left tackle Russell Okung was likely to miss a few weeks of action with an ankle injury.

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll confirmed Monday that Okung has a high left ankle sprain, although he says it’s not as bad as the one that knocked Okung out for more than a month earlier this year.  Okung missed three games with a right ankle injury after getting hurt in the preseason.

“It’s not nearly like the other one,” coach Pete Carroll said. “We don’t know what that means yet.”

It means Okung will likely miss this week’s game against the Raiders, but Carroll won’t rule Okung out just yet.
