Seattle Seahawks amazingly healthy

SEATTLE -- Seattle Seahawks coach Pete Carroll is pleasantly surprised at how strong the team is, health wise, heading into the offseason.

“We came out of this season tremendously healthy,” he said. “This is by far the best health situation I’ve even been around. We ended at a really good level of conditioning.”

The one concern is left tackle Russell Okung, who missed eight games early in the season with a torn ligament in his big toe. Okung started the last nine games of the season, but he may need offseason surgery on his foot.

"His foot was sore the whole time, but he fought through it," Carroll said of Okung. "We'll have to see how it comes out when [doctors] evaluate it now.''

And cornerback Richard Sherman injured an ankle in the Super Bowl.

“He has a second-degree ankle sprain,” Carroll said. “But you saw him getting around pretty good [in the parade Thursday]. It’s going to take him a number of weeks, but he’ll be OK.”
