I heard this from Brock and Danny's Tuesday show, hopefully it's accurate:
-Okung is eligible to return to practice (presumably with a roster exemption similar to Harvin) the next day after Seattle's next game (Monday in St. Louis).
-Okung "has to miss another two games" according to Brock, though he said this right after mentioning the Monday night game, so I'm assuming the earliest Okung can return is week 11 at home against the Vikings.
-Mentions that Okung did not elect to have surgery, though he did seek a second opinion.
There is a lot we don't know, but in the next couple weeks we'll learn a lot more about how soon Russell Okung could be back when he returns to the team and tests out that toe.
In a best case scenario, he only misses 3 more games, and the only opponent during that stretch who's a real threat to beat Seattle (Atlanta at 10am) has not posted very good pass rush numbers this season.
Even if Okung is not back as soon as the Vikings game, we shouldn't need him to blow out Minnesota, and then we have a bye week before hosting the Saints. That Saints game is during week 13, which takes place on December 2nd. You have to admit, for all the grief the schedule makers gave us this season, they couldn't have timed that soft stretch any better in hindsight.
