If the Seattle Seahawks are going to cover the gigantic 19.5 point spread against the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday, they're going to have to do it without starting left tackle Russell Okung. Seahawks coach Pete Carroll announced on Wednesday that Okung won't be playing against the Jaguars.

Okung injured his toe and was taken to the locker room in the first quarter of the Seahawks 29-3 win over San Francisco on Sunday. Okung eventually returned to the Seahawks sideline, but he never returned to the game.

Carroll didn't offer a timetable on Okung's return, but he did say the fifth-year veteran was out of town on Wednesday getting a medical opinion on the toe.

Okung's injury means that Paul McQuistan will make the move from his usual spot at left guard to left tackle. McQuistan's replacement at guard will be Seattle's 2011 first-round draft pick James Carpenter.

The Seahawks should roll be able to roll on without Okung, at least against the Jaguars, but it may be a little harder than expected. Jacksonville coach Gus Bradley was Seattle's defensive coordinator for four years (2009-12) and is familiar with the team's personnel.
