That “little procedure” performed on Seahawks receiver Percy Harvin’s hip has done little to help him get ready to face the 49ers.
Harvin didn’t practice on Wednesday or Thursday, putting his status for Sunday’s showdown firmly in doubt.
Two weeks and five days ago, Harvin made his only appearance of the season, with 19 snaps against the team that traded him to Seattle, the Vikings. Harvin emerged with soreness that neither the bye week nor a night off against the Saints has been able to fully alleviate.
With the Seahawks closing in on the No. 1 seed in the NFC, the best move could be to let him rest up for the next month in the hopes that he’ll be good to go when the Seahawks host a divisional-round game.
Also missing from practice this week has been linebacker Bruce Irvin, who has a thigh injury. Cornerback Brandon Browner practiced on a limited basis Wednesday, but he didn’t practice Thursday.
