Russell Okung health update: Chargers tackle (blood clot) says he could return this week

first_img“Being sidelined after suffering a pulmonary embolism earlier this year has been an intense battle that I’m thanksful to put behind me. … Looking forward to being back in action!”NFL Media reported Thursday that Okung’s agent and the Chargers have worked out a restructured deal that will allow the veteran to earn the entire $13 million he was orginally slated to make this season, even though his pay was automatically reduced while he was on the non-football injury list to open the season. Related News More on Russell Okung’s contract, per agent JI Halsell. He made $2M on NFI over 6 weeks (was to be $5.5M if he was on all of ‘19). The #Chargers made him whole, so he’ll earn $1M per week — getting him to $13M. If he’s not active this week, a roster bonus makes up the difference.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) October 17, 2019Okung revealed June 1 that he experienced “unusual chest pain at practice” and decided to visit urgent care, where it was revealed he had a pulmonary embolism, a serious condition in which a blood clot gets lodged in an artery in the lung. He was told by doctors that the decision to seek treatment likely saved his life.”When detected early, this condition is very treatable and I’m grateful to have access to the best available care as I continue on the path to recovery,” Okung wrote, in part, at the time. “Thanks to an incredible medical team and a very supportive family, I hope to be back on the field as quickly as possible.”While near-death experiences are certainly a wake-up call, I’m feeling great physically. It’s not an ankle or shoulder. As soon as doctors clear me, my plans include blocking #17’s blind side all the way to Miami.”Statement on Reported Injury Status— Russell Okung 🇳🇬 (@RussellOkung) July 25, 2019Trent Scott, who has started in Okung’s spot at left tackle this season, is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Titans at Tennessee. Jalen Ramsey injury update: Newest Ram (back) hopes to play Sunday GM Tom Telesco shortly aftere Okung was treated said there was no timetable for his return to action.Okung, who turned 31 last week, was selected sixth overall by the Seahawks in 2010 and remained in Seattle until he signed a one-year deal with Denver in 2016.He signed a four-year, $53 million contract with the Chargers the following year. Chargers offensive tackle Russell Okung, who was treated this summer for a blood clot in his lung, announced Thursday that he could return to action as soon as this Sunday.Okung prefaced a tweeted statement with, “Oh happy day!” and then said, in part, in the statement: “I’ve been looking forward to this day for several weeks and I’m excited to officially announce that I will be back to football as early as Week 7,” adding his thanks to his agent who helped him “navigate this unique scenario with the Chargers front office” and to fans for their care and compassion.last_img read more
