Seahawks offensive linemen Okung, Giacomini both expected to practice this week

A Seahawks team that has been dominating the NFL this season is getting even more help in the form of Tackles Russell Okung and Breno Giacomini who will be returning to practice.

“It’s not likely that [Okung will] be ready, that’s a lot to ask him in one week’s time on the practice field,” Carroll said. “We’d like to take a couple of weeks, get him back, really get him solid, get his legs under him and see where he is. We have been really trying to be cautious in a sense to make sure we don’t hurry things up too much.”

The return of Okung and Giacomini will essentially return three starters to the lineup for Seattle as Paul McQuistan will be able to move back inside to his natural left guard position from left tackle. With their bye week following the Vikings’ game, Seattle should have their offensive line back to full strength for the final month of the regular

The NFL needs to be on watch, the Seahawks are one of the best teams in the NFL as it is and the return of three OL starters to their original positions will make them that much better. They have to be considered as one of the favorites to win the Super Bowl.
