Russell Okung suffers pectoral injury; out six months

UPDATE: Okung suffered a torn pectoral muscle during Thursday night’s 31-14 win over the Eagles, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports.

According to Schefter, Okung faces six months of rehab.

Seattle Seahawks left tackle Russell Okung suffered a potentially serious pectoral injury in the fourth quarter of the team’s 31-14 win over the Philadelphia Eagles, head coach Pete Carroll said after the game.

Okung exited the game after being hip-tossed by Eagles defensive end Trent Cole after a running play on 2nd-and-10 with 1:57 to play in a 17-point game.

Cole used both of his hands to grab Okung by the right arm and used his right leg to flip Okung to the ground after the whistle had blown. The result caught the attention of an official, who did not see the act, so no flag was thrown on the play. Okung had been blocking Cole on a simple running play to the opposite side and did not appear to be doing anything excessive to warrant Cole’s actions.
