As expected, the Seattle Seahawks have placed left tackle Russell Okung on injured reserve, with the designation to return.

He’ll be able to return to practice after six weeks, and Okung will be able to play after after eight weeks.

With a Week 12 bye, it means that Okung will be back at the earliest by Week 13, when the Seahawks play the Saints.

To replace Okung on the active roster, the Seahawks signed tackle Caylin Hauptmann from the Browns’ practice squad. An undrafted free agent from Florida International, Hauptmann started 37 games at left tackle in college.
