One lengthy injury report

A good portion of coach Pete Carroll’s just-completed news conference centered on the Seahawks’ injury situation coming out of Sunday’s loss to the Raiders and going into this week’s game against the New York Giants.

There was some good news today: Left tackle Russell Okung might be able to return to practice on Wednesday after missed the past six quarters with a sprained left ankle; cornerbacks Kelly Jennings and Walter Thurmond should return after sitting out Sunday because of hamstring and head injuries; and linebacker Matt McCoy, the team’s leading special teams tackler, also should be back after sitting out with a sore hamstring.

But there also was some bad news: Defensive end Red Bryant will miss some time and could miss considerable time after getting a sprained knee against the Raiders; quarterback Matt Hasselbeck got a slight concussion while being sacked a career-high eight times, but should be able to play this week; tackle Tyler Polumbus (sprained knee) and guard Ben Hamilton (concussion), the starting left side of the line against the Raiders, are iffy for this week; and rookie wide receiver Golden Tate has a sprained ankle.
