RENTON, Wash. (AP) — The Seattle Seahawks have placed left tackle Russell Okung on injured reserve with a designation to return after injuring a toe against the San Francisco 49ers last week.

Okung injured his left big toe blocking 49ers defensive end Justin Smith on the final play of the first quarter.

Coach Pete Carroll says Okung suffered a torn ligament in his toe and the injury is expected to keep him sidelined for six to eight weeks.

Paul McQuistan will start in place of Okung against the Jacksonville Jaguars. McQuistan started the first two games of the year at left guard for the Seahawks.

Under the injured reserve rules, Okung will be ineligible for the next eight weeks. He can return to practice six weeks after being placed on the list and eligible to play against Minnesota on Nov. 17.
