Russell Okung's ankle...

Seahawks left tackle Russell Okung was the only major injury to report from Seattle's win over Cleveland on Sunday, and Pete Carroll told Brock and Salk on 710 ESPN this morning that "not a lot showed up'' in Okung's MRI exam. That feels like good news, I think, but his prognosis is still unclear. In his place, expect to see Alvin Bailey lining up at left tackle if Okung cannot play this week vs. St. Louis. Here's the good news: Robert Quinn is on the injured reserve.

Kam Chancellor remains out...

Elsewhere, Kam Chancellor is working to get back into action after missing Sunday's game with a tailbone bruise. Carroll told Brock and Salk that he's moving a lot better this week than last, so that's encouraging. We'll have to see if he practices later on in the week -- Carroll said post-game yesterday that Kam was no where near playing after missing practice all week long.

Updating Marshawn Lynch...

As Pete Carroll mentioned on 710, Marshawn Lynch won't practice this week so the soonest he'd be back is Week 17. I've been saying that my guess would be getting Lynch back for the Wildcard Round at the earliest, but it would be nice to have him back for that final matchup with the Cardinals in order to knock some of the rust off.

Either way -- here's what Jay Glazer said about Lynch's rehab on Sunday.

Per Glazer (and he's never wrong), Lynch is in San Francisco training with an MMA coach named Tareq Azim. Glazer spoke with Azim, who told him that, "More than anything, we're trying to get the fight back with Marshawn. He's never gone through a surgery, so we're really working on the mental game, doing a lot of core stuff, that's the surgery rehab. We're hoping to get him back by the end of the regular season."

So we wait. In his stead, expect Christine Michael, Bryce Brown, and maybe a little more of Derrick Coleman in the mix. Pete Carroll said this morning that they'll continue to ride the hot hand.
