Chargers' Russell Okung: Dealing with injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okung (undisclosed) wasn't able to participate in Tuesday's minicamp practice, Eric D. Williams of reports.

When asked about Okung's injury Tuesday, coach Anthony Lynn said: "we don't know yet," referring to whether the injury was long-term. Okung dealt with some groin problems early in the 2018 season, but it's not known if that same injury is effecting him now. It's unclear if the former first-round pick in 2010 will be ready for training camp. In his stead, however, Sam Tevi shifted over to left tackle, and Trent Scott played right tackle.

Chargers' Russell Okung: Set to play Week 6
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okung (groin) is active Sunday against the Browns.

With fellow tackle Joe Barksdale (knee) out for the contest, Okung's active status will come as a huge relief for the Chargers, who will be tasked with stopping Myles Garrett and a stout Cleveland front seven.

Chargers' Russell Okung: Questionable for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okung (groin) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Browns.

Okung was a limited participant at practice this week as he continues to return from the groin injury he suffered Week 4. The 31-year-old was inactive for last week's game against the Raiders after limited participation, so his status remains up in the air.

Chargers' Russell Okung: Limited participation Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okung's (groin) participation in Wednesday's practice was limited.

Okung's groin injury surfaced last week and ultimately cost him Sunday's game against the Raiders. His limited participation Monday is a good sign, but his situation is far from resolved. Look for a better indication of his status when Friday's injury report surfaces.

Chargers' Russell Okung: Ruled out Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okung (groin) is listed as inactive for Sunday's game against the Raiders.

Okung continues to recover from an injury sustained during the Chargers' Week 4 win over the 49ers. The offensive tackle was able to participate in practice on a limited basis prior to Sunday's game versus Oakland, but will ultimately be held out of the contest. Expect Sam Tevi and Trent Scott to slot into the starting lineup.

Chargers' Russell Okung: Tagged as questionable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okung (groin) is listed as questionable for Sunday's tilt against the Raiders.

Okung returned to limited participation in practice Thursday after keeping to the sideline Wednesday, so his status has improved throughout the week heading into Sunday's matchup against a division foe. If Okung is ultimately held out Week 5, however, expect Sam Tevi and Trent Scott to handle the duties at offensive tackle.

Chargers' Russell Okung: Dealing with groin injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okung is dealing with a groin injury and will be evaluated later this week, Eric Williams of reports.

Okung suffered the injury during Sunday's win over the 49ers, leaving Sam Tevi to slide over to left tackle and Trent Scott to come in at right tackle. Should Okung miss more time, look for Tevi and Scott to continue in those roles.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okung exited Saturday's preseason game against the Saints with a minor undisclosed injury, Jack Wang of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.

Okung is tasked with protecting Philip Rivers' blindside, so the Chargers were taking no chances. The nature of his injury is still unclear, but he should be ready for Week 1 against the Chiefs.

Chargers' Russell Okung: Good to go Week 17
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okung (groin) is active for Sunday's game against the Raiders.

Though he never advanced from limited participation in practices this week, Okung will be able to return from a one-game absence to start for the Chargers with their playoff hopes on the line. Sam Tevi will settle back into a reserve role with Okung available.

Chargers' Russell Okung: Inactive Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okung (groin) is inactive for Sunday's matchup with the Jets.

Okung suffered his injury against the Chiefs in Week 15 and struggled with it throughout the week. Sam Tevi will likely start at tackle for the Chargers with Okung sidelined.

Chargers' Russell Okung: Sustains injury Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okung was removed from Saturday's 30-13 loss to the Chiefs in the second half after sustaining a groin injury, the Associated Press reports.

Okung was one of several Chargers players who exited Saturday's contest with injuries. The Chargers likely won't have an update on his status until the team resumes practicing Wednesday.

Chargers' Russell Okung: Full participant at Thursday's practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okung (knee) logged a full practice Thursday.

Okung had only practiced in a limited fashion this week up until Thursday's session, but he's on track to suit up Saturday against the Chiefs. Expect him to take up his normal post as the Chargers' starting left tackle.

Chargers' Russell Okung: Limited in practice Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okung (knee) was limited in practice Tuesday.

Okung left during the first quarter of Sunday's game against the Redskins due to a knee injury but was able to return to the field later in the contest. The Chargers may be erring on the side of caution by having the veteran limit his practice.

Chargers' Russell Okung: Returns after suffering knee injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okung was able to reenter Sunday's 30-13 win over the Redskins after exiting in the first quarter with a left knee injury, the Associated Press reports.

Okung took a big fall and limped off the field with the injury early on, with the Chargers initially deeming the left tackle questionable to return. After being evaluated, Okung was cleared to check back into the game later in the first half and finished out the contest, suggesting the knee issue isn't anything significant. It wouldn't be surprising, however, if Okung's practice time was restricted this week, especially with the Chargers facing a six-day turnaround with their next game coming Saturday against the Chiefs.

Chargers' Russell Okung: Injures knee Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okung suffered a knee injury in Sunday's game against the Redskins and is questionable to return.

Okung has played in every game this season, and rookie Sam Tevi is likely to slot in and replace him at left tackle.

Chargers' Russell Okung: Returns to practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okung (ankle) returned to practice Tuesday, ESPN's Eric D. Williams reports.

His return to practice makes it safe to assume that he's no longer dealing with the ankle injury that kept him out of Sunday's preseason game against the Saints. If this is the case, the Chargers likely will have their most important offensive lineman available for the season opener.

Chargers' Russell Okung: Held out Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okung (ankle) was inactive for Sunday's preseason game against the Saints, Eric D. Williams of reports.

Okung missed practice time last week with the ankle injury, but it's likely that the team is just giving one of their projected starters on the offensive line some extended time off to ensure his health for the regular season.

Chargers' Russell Okung: Not practicing Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okung did not participate in Thursday's practice due to a left leg injury, Eric D. Williams of reports.

The exact details surrounding Okung's injury have not been reported, but it's likely not a serious one, as the Charges may just be taking precautionary measures with their prized left tackle. Okung signed a massive four-year deal with Los Angeles this offseason, and unless updated otherwise, he is expected to be healthy and on the field for Week 1.

Chargers' Russell Okung: Signs massive deal with Chargers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okung has signed a four-year, $53 million deal with the Chargers, ESPN's Josina Anderson reports.

In desperate need of a left tackle, the Chargers jumped head-first into the first day of free agency, locking down one of the best available tackles in Okung with a four-year deal. While the amount of guaranteed money is still unknown, the move conceivably means current LT King Dunlap will be released in the following days, saving the Chargers some much-needed cap space.

Broncos' Russell Okung: Will not have option picked up
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okung will not have his 2017 option picked up by the Broncos, Jay Glazer of FOX Sports reports.

Okung had a $1 million option due Mar. 9 and another $8 million due in 2017 via a roster bonus, and Denver is reportedly not taking the tackle up on it. Had the bonus been exercised, the tackle would have been owed another $40 million from 2018 to 2020. Although there is certainly a chance he enters free agency, it is not a lock, as the Broncos could ask Okung to restructure his contract. If he were to enter the free agent pool, however, he would add another tackle to a class that already boasts the likes of Andrew Whitworth, Kelvin Beachum and Ryan Clady among others.
