Dealing with injury

June 11, 2019
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.

NFL Draft: Fantasy Fallout for Veterans

Jim Coventry looks at which veterans benefited from this year's NFL draft and which could see a reduced role thanks to rookie additions.
Past Fantasy Outlooks
In his first full season with the Chargers, Okung solidified the LT position that had been a turnstile in past years, playing in 15 games while yielding zero sacks. On the second year of a four-year, $53 million contract he signed during the 2016 offseason, Okung is one of the feature offensive lineman in a unit that is widely regarded as an emerging core of the team.
The oft-injured Okung has never played a full season, missing two games last year with calf and chest injuries. When he plays, though, he's a stalwart at left tackle, though he allowed as many sacks last year (3.5) as he did in the previous two years combined (23 games). Health, and more consistency, is imperative this year for Okung, who will anchor a weak offensive line that will start mediocrity at left guard. A free agent at year's end, Okung might not be back next season if the Seahawks aren't willing to pay top dollar.
In four seasons, the injury prone Okung has played in only 45 of 64 games. He was limited to eight games last season because of a toe injury. When he's on the field, though, he's one of the league's best left tackles. A 2010 Pro Bowler, Okung has allowed 3.5 sacks the last two years (23 games).
The sixth overall pick in the June draft, Okung replaces the HOF-bound Walter Jones at left tackle. Okung will have his rookie struggles, but the Seahawks need him to develop quickly.
