Russell Okung will make is return to the Seahawks’ starting lineup at left tackle in today’s game against the Saints.
The team’s first-round draft choice had missed most of the past four games with a sprained left ankle. But Okung practiced all week and was expected to play today. But coach Pete Carroll wanted to see how Okung was feeling on Saturday and this morning before making the decision.
Also, Ben Obomanu will start at flanker for Deon Butler and rookie free safety Earl Thomas has rejoined the team after attending a memorial service for a family member and will start.
