Seahawks LT Okung a game-day decision, WR Rice will play

Russell Okung was on the practice field Friday, but there are no guarantees the Seahawks' left tackle will be able to play after suffering a knee bruise last weekend.

"He got some work done today," Pete Carroll said. "We'll see how he goes tomorrow and how he feels after the work today, and that will go all the way to game-time on that one."

If Okung can't play, Frank Omiyale would be the left tackle, and while Omiyale appears to be a capable backup, that could be scary news for the Seahawks against Dallas' DeMarcus Ware, who has the most sacks in the NFL dating back to 2005, his rookie year.

The news is better on several other Seahawks who have been limited to varying degrees this week. Receiver Sidney Rice (knee) "Will be fine," according to Carroll. Same goes for tight end Zach Miller (foot) who did not practice, but is expected to play.

"Zach will be fine," Carroll said. "He practiced a couple of days ago, got some stuff done yesterday. We just want make sure that he's going to be right."

Receiver Golden Tate, who missed the season opener with a knee injury, will get the start Sunday.

"He really had a good week," Carroll said. "He looked great, he really did."

Guard John Moffitt was held out of practice with a sore shoulder, but is expected to play, Carroll said. Moffitt did not play in the opener as he was coming back from elbow surgery, but will take over the starting role from J.R. Sweezy.
