Seahawks OT Okung expected back


Seattle Seahawks left tackle Russell Okung is expected to return to practice this week after missing the team’s 35-6 win over the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday night.

Okung sat out with a bruised lung suffered the previous week against the San Francisco 49ers.

Wide receiver Jermaine Kearse appears doubtful after suffering a pulled hamstring against the Cardinals. “That’s really touch-and-go to get back in a week’s time there,” Carroll said.

Carroll said center Max Unger, who has missed the past five games with a high ankle sprain, will “do whatever he can to get out there this week knowing that if we can get a win we’ll have a week off.”

The Seahawks can clinch the No. 1 seed with a win over the St. Louis Rams.
