Okung had foot surgery, likely not back until training camp

Pete Carroll confirmed Friday that Russell Okung, who was bothered by a toe injury much of last season that caused him to miss eight games, had offseason foot surgery.

"He's coming back from foot surgery, so he's not working with us," Carroll said. "He's conditioning as he can right now. It's going to be a while before we get him back. It's going to be probably about camp time. It's stuff that needed to be done. It gives Alvin Bailey a great opportunity for a lot of quality reps with the first group and it will help other guys with opportunities, as well.

"Russell will be fine, and it's just something we had to do when the season was over. He had a few things, so we've taken care of it. We know we'll have him back for training camp. Maybe a little sooner than that."

Okung was seen in a walking boot during Oklahoma State's spring game April 7, first indicating he had a procedure done after the season.
