SEATTLE (AP) — Seattle Seahawks left tackle Russell Okung was back on the field for the start of the second half after leaving with a shoulder injury suffered late in the second quarter against Denver.

Okung was hurt on Marshawn Lynch's 8-yard run with less than a minute remaining in the first half Sunday. He was face down for several minutes before walking off the field holding his left arm against his chest. He was immediately taken to the locker room.

Alvin Bailey took over at left tackle, but Okung was back to start the second half.

Denver reserve tight end Virgil Green suffered a concussion in the second quarter and was ruled out for the game. Green was hurt covering a punt.
