Russell Okung: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

Okung (toe) practiced for the first time Monday since having offseason toe surgery, Liz Mathews of 710 ESPN Seattle reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Okung was sidelined for eight games last season due to a torn ligament in his toe but was ultimately able to return in time for Seattle's title run. Offseason surgery prevented the left tackle from participating in any team activities over the summer, making Monday's light drill work his first time hitting the field since February. An established top-tier blindside protector, it wouldn't be surprising for Okung to sit out the majority of the Seahawks' preseason games to ensure he's healthy for the team's regular season opener on Sept. 4 versus the Packers.
Okung may need surgery to repair a lingering toe issue this offseason, Sports Radio KJR reports.

Although the star left tackle ultimately returned for Seattle's title run, Okung still might need surgery to prevent further complications. As the blind-side protector of quarterback Russell Wilson, the Seahawks will want to keep Okung in tip-top shape, so don't be surprised if he the surgical route is preferred.

2015

2014

In four seasons, the injury prone Okung has played in only 45 of 64 games. He was limited to eight games last season because of a toe injury. When he's on the field, though, he's one of the league's best left tackles. A 2010 Pro Bowler, Okung has allowed 3.5 sacks the last two years (23 games).

2010

The sixth overall pick in the June draft, Okung replaces the HOF-bound Walter Jones at left tackle. Okung will have his rookie struggles, but the Seahawks need him to develop quickly.
