Seahawks OLT Russell Okung tore his pectoral muscle in Thursday night's win over the Eagles and will reportedly miss the rest of the season. He is expected to undergo six months of rehab, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

The 2010 first-round pick suffered the injury while engaged with Eagles DE Trent Cole. Head coach Pete Carroll described it as a "significant" pectoral injury.

Carroll called the play "out of line."

"He got thrown down after the whistle, really blatantly," Carroll said Friday. "Stuff like that happens in the game sometimes, but this was most unfortunate because he was damaged by it."

Okung has started 12 games this season. He started 10 games as a rookie last season while battling ankle injuries. The Seahawks already lost rookies OT James Carpenter and OG John Moffitt to season-ending injuries.

Aside from right tackle Breno Giacomini, who is starting for Carpenter, Jarriel King is the only other tackle on the Seahawks' roster. Right guard Paul McQuistan moved to left tackle for Okung and Lemuel Jeanpierre took over for McQuistan.
