Another changing of more than just the guards is coming for Seattle's offensive line after OLT Russell Okung's torn pectoral ended the Seahawks' convincing 31-14 victory over the Eagles on a down note. "They will miss him, obviously," said one daily team observer of Okung, the third Seattle starting O-lineman to go down for the count in a three-week span (ORT James Carpenter and ORG John Moffitt are the others). "He was playing better by the week and was a huge part of the running game getting five consecutive 100-plus-yard efforts." Okung was at his best helping to clear a path on Marshawn Lynch's first of two TD runs against the Eagles. Okung will probably be replaced at left tackle by Paul McQuistan, who has been starting lately at right guard in place of Moffitt. Lemuel Jeanpierre will likely replace McQuistan at right guard, with the only other option being rookie Jarriel King, who has yet to be active for a game.
