Offensive line taking shape for Seahawks

Finally, the Seattle Seahawks’ offensive line might start to resemble what the team envisioned it would be before the season began, you know, minus Alex Gibbs, who was supposed to coach the group.

Chester Pitts could make his debut for the Seahawks on Sunday at left guard against the Chicago Bears at Soldier Field. Russell Okung should be back at left tackle too. Both practiced on Monday, and coach Pete Carroll was optimistic, according to John Boyle of the Everett Daily Herald.

Pitts has been making the long recovery from microfracture knee surgery and Okung missed the team’s first three games with a high ankle sprain. He played in the first half at St. Louis two weeks ago and then was forced to sit out because it got sore.

“Well, it’s great that they’re back,” Carroll said. “We have to get them working together, out there on the practice field and repping together, and I don’t know how long that’s going to take. Sometimes that takes a really long time for an offensive line to gel in the ways that they can, but we’re going to be hopeful about it and optimistic that we know they’re going to get better.”
