RENTON, Wash. (AP) — Seattle Seahawks left tackle Russell Okung underwent offseason surgery on his left foot, but coach Pete Carroll expects him to be healthy by the start of training camp.
Carroll confirmed Okung had surgery after Seattle finished picking in the draft Friday night. There were no details given on what Okung had repaired, but he’d been bothered by toe problems during 2013 that saw him miss half the regular season.
Questions about whether Okung had surgery first popped up after he was photographed at the Oklahoma State spring game in early April with his foot in a walking boot.
Carroll said it would be a while before Okung was back with the team but said, “We know we’ll have him back for training camp. Maybe a little sooner than that.”
