RENTON, Wash. (AP) — Seattle Seahawks coach Pete Carroll says left tackle Russell Okung is unlikely to play on Sunday against Jacksonville after suffering a foot injury against San Francisco.

Carroll would not give specifics on the severity of Okung's injury on Monday. He said the team is still awaiting more information before coming to a determination on how long they'll be without their Pro Bowl lineman.

Okung was injured on the final play of the first quarter on Sunday night, following a 60-minute weather delay. Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson fell forward in a pile for a 2-yard gain on a third-and-2 run.

Okung walked off the field with a limp and was taken by a cart for further tests at the stadium.

He returned to the sideline and went through some footwork drills, but ultimately spent the rest of the night on the sideline as a spectator. Further tests on Monday revealed the extent of the injury.
