Seahawks get blueprint win but lose Russell Okung
Friday, December 2, 2011
RENTON, Wash. (AP) -- Seattle Seahawks coach Pete Carroll says the play in which starting left tackle Russell Okung suffered a torn pectoral muscle was "really late and it was really out of line."
Carroll said Friday that the Seahawks got another blueprint victory on Thursday night in their 31-14 win over Philadelphia, but the bigger concern was Okung's injury. During his midday news conference, Carroll said it was a significant injury and later on Friday the Seahawks confirmed Okung had a torn muscle and will likely need surgery and extensive rehab.
Okung got thrown by Philadelphia defensive end Trent Cole away from the play inside the final 2 minutes. When asked if it was a dirty play, Carroll said it was "a bad play."
