Seahawks left tackle Russell Okung suffered a calf strain that could impact his availability going forward, coach Pete Carroll said after Sunday's win over the Browns.
The Seattle Seahawks came out of their 30-13 win over the Cleveland Browns Sunday with three specific injury issues. Here’s what Pete Carroll said about each:
— Strong safety Kam Chancellor was not able to play with a pelvis injury suffered last week after having been listed as questionable heading into the game. Kelcie McCray played in his place. Carroll said Chancellor “just couldn’t make it. We’ll see next week, see how it goes, take it a day at a time next week.”
— Left tackle Russell Okung departed in the third quarter with a calf strain and was replaced by Alvin Bailey. Carroll said Okung has “somewhat of a calf strain. We don’t know what that is until we get it all checked out. …disappointed for him because those can last a little bit so we’ll see what it means. We don’t know much about it yet.”
— Cornerback DeShawn Shead played part of the first series then left the game after having battled an ankle sprain all week in practice. He suffered the sprain last week against Baltimore. “We got him out there a little bit, we just had a chance to kind of save him. It was miraculous that he was back on the field this weekend so we were able to get him through. He should be fine next week.”
Carroll said Okung’s was the only new injury suffered in the game.
