Seattle has blueprint win, but may have lost 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 significant injury to his 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, on which the Seahawks were still waiting to get more test results.
Okung got thrown by Philadelphia defensive end Trent Cole away from the play inside the final 2 minutes. Carroll said he wouldn't rule Okung out for the season until more a more definitive diagnosis has been given. When asked if it was a dirty play, Carroll said it was "a bad play."
