Seattle Seahawks rookie left tackle Russell Okung is already out for the season opener against San Francisco. He might not be ready for Week 2 either.
Seattle coach Pete Carroll said Friday that Okung's status is still unknown as he tries to return from a high ankle sprain suffered in Seattle's second preseason game.
Okung was hurt on Aug. 21 against Green Bay on the first play of the game when he got tangled with guard Ben Hamilton. He's been a spectator at Seahawks practices ever since.
Okung was taken with the sixth overall pick in the April draft and instantly inserted to take over at left tackle for the retired Walter Jones. Okung was then late reporting as contract negotiations on his six-year $58 million deal dragged through the first week of training camp.
