WORD OF THE DAY: TOE
As in the one on Pro Bowl left tackle
Asked during his day-after Q&A session with the media whether Okung would play in Sunday’s game against the Jacksonville Jaguars at CenturyLink Field, coach Pete Carroll said, “I don’t think that’s possible, we’ll see what happens. I don’t think he can make that.”
But Carroll stopped short of offering any more details, adding that the club still is waiting to get all the information before making any additional comment.
“There are some options that we’ll deal with as we try to figure it out,” Carroll said. “There’s a little bit of a spectrum here that could come to us with options. We need to wait and see.

Carroll also is hopeful that rookie defensive lineman

ONE NOISEY RECORD
|YOU DON'T SAY |
“You could cut the energy in the stadium with a knife. It was different from a regular game – so loud I could feel it in my chest and it gave me energy.”
Before his session started, Carroll was presented with a certificate signifying that the CenturyLink Field-record crowd of 68,338 set the Guinness Book of World Records mark for “The Loudest Crowd Cheer at a Sports Stadium.”
The crowd noise reached 136.6 decibels during Sunday night’s game.
“It was a great day to have it happen,” Carroll said.
The players have their “off” day on Tuesday, when the coaches will be working on the game plan for Sunday’s game against the Jaguars.
