Seahawks lose Russell Okung for the season

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter,  Seattle Seahawks left tackle Russell Okung will miss the rest of the season and be forced to undergo six months of rehab after suffering a torn pectoral muscle during Thursday night’s win over the Eagles.

Okung was injured during a play in which Eagles defensive end Trent Cole threw him to ground in an unsportsmanlike manner.  The best video of the play that we could find is here.

I wouldn’t be surprised at all of Cole ends up getting fined by the NFL next week for his reckless actions.

This is a tough break for the Seahawks and Okung since he’s the key part of their offensive line.
