RENTON, Wash. (AP) — Seattle Seahawks coach Pete Carroll believes starting left tackle Russell Okung will be able to play on Sunday against Dallas, but he is unlikely to practice most of this week.

Okung did not participate in practice on Wednesday. Okung suffered a bone bruise in his left knee late in the Seahawks' 20-16 loss to Arizona on Sunday. He'll be limited through the week. Frank Omiyale will get Okung's reps at left tackle during practice.

There's another change on the offensive line with John Moffitt moving back in at right guard in place of rookie J.R. Sweezy. Moffitt was inactive last week as he recovered from elbow surgery.

Seattle got wide receiver Golden Tate back at practice. He missed the Arizona game with a knee injury.
