RENTON, Wash. Martell Webster Jersey . -- The Seattle Seahawks have placed left tackle Russell Okung on injured reserve with a designation to return after he injured a toe against the San Francisco 49ers last week. Okung injured his left big toe blocking 49ers defensive end Justin Smith on the final play of the first quarter. Coach Pete Carroll says Okung suffered a torn ligament in his toe and the injury is expected to keep him sidelined for six to eight weeks. "It gives him a chance to come back," Carroll said. "Its a six- to eight-week injury and well hope that that will all work out right for us. Hes determined, hes kind of excited about the fact that he has a chance to get back this season as well. So we will just ride it out, see what happens, and take good care of him and hopefully well be able to make it." Under the injured reserve rules, Okung will be ineligible for the next eight weeks. He can return to practice six weeks after being placed on the list and be eligible to play against Minnesota on Nov. 17. Paul McQuistan will start in place of Okung against the Jacksonville Jaguars. McQuistan started the first two games of the year at left guard for the Seahawks. With McQuistan moving to tackle, James Carpenter will take over at left guard. Carpenter rotated in with McQuistan during the first two weeks. Carroll said Carpenter is ready to play a full game after getting back in shape from a foot injury that sidelined him during training camp. The Seahawks also expect to see the season debut of two key pieces on the defensive side of the ball. Cornerback Brandon Browner and defensive end Chris Clemons are both expected to play against the Jaguars on Sunday. Browner suffered a strained hamstring in practice two weeks ago and wasnt able to return to practice until this week. Browner is expected to start while the plan for Clemons will be more reserved. Clemons is coming back from a torn ACL suffered in Seattles playoff win over the Washington Redskins in January. Carroll said that they will monitor his reps in the game but hes in great shape and conditioning shouldnt be a factor. "Were really, really thrilled for him," Carroll said. "It means the world to Chris of course, as he gets back. He had great preparation, he had a fantastic recovery process, the rehab, everything. So he has a chance to play for us this week and Im really fired up that he gets to join us. We missed that." Clemons has led the Seahawks in sacks in each of the last three seasons. He recorded 11 sacks in both 2010 and 2011 and 11.5 sacks last year for Seattle. Fellow defensive end Red Bryant says the return of Clemons will be a huge boost for an already imposing defence. "Hes a big part of what we do on defence. Hes one of our leaders. Were excited for him to contribute with how hard hes worked to get back," Bryant said. "Its going to be big, man. We really cant put into words how excited we really are that hes back." Notes: DT Jordan Hill was officially ruled out for the game with a strained biceps. ... FB Spencer Ware (ankle) and S Jeron Johnson (hamstring) are both listed as doubtful. Carroll confirmed Ware suffered a high ankle sprain last week against the 49ers. ... T Breno Giacomini (knee) and G J.R. Sweezy (back) are listed as probable. ... With the move of T Russell Okung to injured reserve, the Seahawks have an open roster that they expect to fill by Saturday. Blazers Jerseys China .

WINNIPEG - The Winnipeg Blue Bombers are working on rebuilding their depleted receiving corps this season, but veteran Clarence Denmark says the building blocks are all there. Air Max 2017 Sale .The whole corps this year is probably one of the best since Ive been here, he said Monday after the second day of training camp.Denmark is entering his fifth season with the Bombers and led the teams receivers with 900 yards in 2013 as Terrence Edwards missed several games due to injury and the previous seasons leader, Chris Matthews, hardly played at all.It was a tough season all around for the Bombers as a series of quarterbacks failed to get the offence going and they finished last in the CFL at 3-15.As the team looked to rebuild, the Bombers traded Canadian receiver Jade Etienne to Saskatchewan for quarterback Drew Willy and Kito Poblah to the B.C. Lions for defensive back Korey Banks. On the import side, Edwards retired and Matthews moved on to the NFL.Edwards, who spent seven of his 10 CFL seasons with the Bombers, is going to be missed, said Denmark.We just have to step up and fill those shoes. Terrence is a great guy and a great teacher and just being behind him all those years and watching him, how you prepare for the game, how he is in meetings, was a good experience.To help fill the gap, the team picked up some proven import talent in free agent Nick Moore from B.C. and have other promising players in camp like six-foot-six Mario Urruttia.But they also need to bolster their Canadian talent base and head coach Mike OShea said it would be ideal to return to the same ratio they had of Canadians and imports.To have some sort of consistency in that regard would be ideal (as) it allows you to work on other areas, he said. Once again, its Day 2 of training camp and it doesnt always work out that way.While he said they believe they can start two Canadian receivers, a key to maintaining that number is their ability able to function on special teams.We have to get them in a game in special teams also, he said. Special teams are a huge part of our game especially for backups — especially for Canadian backups. They need to be able to take pride in that and work and get the job done.Winnipeg already has Cory Watson and Rory Kohlert on its roster and theyve been joined at camp by prospects Taylor Renaud and Julian Feoli-Gundino. Renaud is from Winnipeg and this is his second camp. The Blue Bombers released receiver Jordan Brescacin of Tecumseh, Ont., and signed Winnipegs Brett Carter on Monday.Denmark says the competition at the receiver position is going to be tough but hes looking to crack the 1,000-yard mark this season. He knows Moore has already proven he can do that, after a breakout 2013 in B.C. that saw him hit 1,105 yards and rank third in the league.Its possible therell be two of us up there in the 1,000-yard range this year, he said.By joining the Bombers, meanwhile, Moore has reconnected with Willy and is looking forward to playing on the same team with him. They trained together, prepared for the NFL draft together and kept in touch after they went undrafted in 2009.Were going to come out and work every day and get on the same page, he said.Hes looking to build on his success in B.C., when he finally had the playing time needed to bring it all together.It felt like it was coming together and also a sense of comfortableness, he said. Being out there. Knowing the quarterback, the quarterback knowing you, knowing youre going to be at the right spot at the right time. Air Max 200 Sale .
