Carroll confirms Okung likely out vs. Jags

Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll confirmed to reporters here today that Russell Okung has a toe injury that likely will keep him out for Sunday’s game at home against Jacksonville.

Carroll could not confirm the severity of the injury, saying there’s a wide spectrum in terms amount of game time Okung could miss.

“There are some options that we’ll deal with here, and try and figure out,” Carroll said. “And there’s a little bit of a spectrum here that could come to us, with options. We need to wait and see.”

Carroll also said that running back Spencer Ware suffered an ankle sprain on the last play of the game, which could cause him to miss some time.

“He definitely has a significant sprain,” Carroll said. “It happened earlier, and he re-injured it on the last play of the game.”

Carroll said that Brandon Browner will try and practice on Wednesday. Browner has missed the first two games of the season with a hamstring injury.

“We’re going to plan on practicing him with the intent that he could play, unless he can’t,” Carroll said. “So he’s got a good chance of making it back.

Defensive end Chris Clemons will practice again this week, but if he does not return for the Jacksonville game, he likely will be ready in two weeks for Seattle’s contest at Houston, according to Carroll

Carroll also said that rookie defensive tackle Jordan Hill’s strength in his strained bicep has returned, and he has a chance to practice this week.
