The Seahawks saw their long home winning streak come to a halt on Sunday, but there isn’t much time to lament its end.
There’s still home field advantage to nail down and an offense to get moving in the right direction after a rough time of it on Sunday afternoon, but the Seahawks aren’t sure whether or not left tackle Russell Okung will be able to help them do it. Okung injured his toe during the loss to the Cardinals and coach Pete Carroll said on 710 ESPN Monday, via the Seattle Times, that “we won’t know until later in the week” if Okung will play against St. Louis.
It’s the same toe that Okung injured earlier this season, leading the team to place him on injured reserve/return for eight weeks. Okung was able to return to the game on Sunday, something Carroll called “a good sign” about his outlook for Week 17 and beyond.
Carroll also called wide receiever Percy Harvin’s status “an unknown situation again,” although the expectation is that Harvin won’t play until the postseason is underway because of the hip injury that’s limited him most of the season.
