The Seahawks might be without their top pick from the 2010 draft for Week Two, in addition to the season opener. Head coach Pete Carroll said Friday that rookie OLT Russell Okung's status for next week is still unknown. Okung is recovering from a high ankle sprain suffered in the Seahawks' second preseason game.

The sixth overall pick in April's draft is slotted to be the left tackle of the future, taking over for the retired Walter Jones. Tyler Polumbus, whom the Seahawks acquired in a trade with the Lions at the end of August, will likely start against the 49ers. OT Chester Pitts, who just returned to practice as he recovers from microfracture knee surgery, will also be in the mix.

The way we see it

The Seahawks had to make multiple moves this preseason to add depth to the offensive line. Okung's backup, OLT Ray Willis, has been out after undergoing knee surgery. For a team that lacks a lot of offensive weapons, it's critical to have a healthy offensive line to protect QB Matt Hasselbeck, but the Seahawks won't have that advantage for another week or two.
