Observation deck: Seahawks-Chargers

By Mike Sando

Observations from the Seattle Seahawks 24-17 victory over the San Diego Chargers in a preseason game Thursday night:

Okung's status is the note that matters most stemming from this game. If Okung misses an extended period, the line will have a harder time against teams with strong right defensive ends (Seattle faces Justin Smith and the San Francisco 49ers on the road in Week 1). The team might also have to keep a tight end near the formation for blocking help.
