Though Okung had missed just one snap up to that point of the season, the injury raised questions about his durabiltiy. Okung, the No. 6 overall pick of the 2010 NFL Draft, missed six games his rookie season with a pair of high ankle sprains.
Healthy entering this year's training camp, Okung quitely had a solid preseason debut and, as the anchor of the offensive line, is looking to help the unit forge a nasty identity under coach Tom Cable, Eric Williams of the Tacoma News Tribune reports.
"I've really rebounded from the injury last year, and I'm really glad to be back out there," Okung said. "We want to be a tough, physical football team that runs the ball and explosively throws it down field. So that's kind of what we did last year, and I hope that we keep going off of that."
