Seattle back from break with more line changes
Tuesday, December 6, 2011
RENTON, Wash. (AP) -- The Seattle Seahawks have returned from a four-day break with more changes on an already banged up offensive line.
The Seahawks placed left tackle Russell Okung on injured reserve on Tuesday after he suffered a torn pectoral muscle in last Thursday's 31-14 win over Philadelphia. The Seahawks signed guard Mike Gibson to add depth on the offensive line, but the big changes are what's happening with the starters.
Paul McQuistan will move from right guard to left tackle to take over for Okung, coach Pete Carroll said. Lemuel Jeanpierre, who started at center earlier this season against Cleveland, will move in at right guard.
Okung is the third starter to be lost for the year on the offensive line.
