Pete Carroll on Russell Okung: “he’s prepared to start”

Published on November 20, 2010 by     Tacoma News Tribune (Feed)

Just hours before the team takes off for New Orleans, Seahawks coach Pete Carroll briefly addressed the media. The big news involved rookie tackle Russell Okung, who appears ready to go against the Saints after recovering from an ankle injury.

“Russell practiced very well today, went with the first group the whole time and he’s prepared to start,” Carroll said. “That’s a real good sign for us. We like that. We’ll see how he looks tomorrow after coming off this practice, but he’s got a real good chance to be starting for us. That’s a big deal for us.”

Obviously that’s good news for the Seahawks offense, which is facing an aggressive, attack-minded Saints defense. Here’s the official injury report for the game:

OUT: DT Colin Cole (ankle), G Mike Gibson (ankle), TE Anthony McCoy (knee).

DOUBTFUL: RB Michael Robinson (hamstring), WR Brandon Stokley (calf), WR Golden Tate (ankle)

QUESTIONABLE: None

PROBABLE: QB Matt Hasselbeck (wrist), T Russell Okung (ankle), LB Lofa Tatupu (knee), S Earl Thomas (not injury related)

Thomas was excused from practice today due to a family matter but he’s expected to be with the team Sunday. Robinson, McCoy, Gibson and Cole also didn’t practice. Stokley and Tate were limited in drills today. Hasselbeck, Okung and Tatupu, who had missed a couple days with a knee issue, all practiced in full.
