Say hello to what is starting to look like another year of nonstop shuffling on Seattle's offensive line. As currently constructed, six of the team's 10 linemen are newcomers, including three who signed the week before the season opener. Already missing first-round OLT Russell Okung, who they hope will be recovered from a high ankle sprain in time for the Week Three game against San Diego, the Seahawks suffered another blow when previously rock-solid second-year ORG Max Unger suffered a season-ending toe injury in Week One. "They're just holding their breath until Okung comes back," one team insider said. "Right guard looked like the one position they didn't have to worry about at all, and then this (Unger's injury) happened. Unger was a real good fit in their scheme, the one guy who was always dependable. He had good athleticism and mobility, and he also had a real nasty streak."
