Percy Harvin among three Seahawks to sit out Wednesday

Three Seahawks sat out practice on Wednesday, including wide receiver Percy Harvin, who suffered a concussion in the divisional playoff win vs. New Orleans four days earlier.

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll had indicated that Harvin wouldn’t take part in the club’s first on-field work leading up to Sunday’s NFC title game vs. San Francisco. The focus now turns to whether Harvin can gain the necessary medical clearance to return to the field.

Also sitting out practice Wednesday was tailback Marshawn Lynch, but his absence was designated as “not injury related” on the injury report, and he has previously sat out other Wednesday practices during the season. In short, his lack of participation to begin the week does not appear out of the ordinary.

Reserve rookie defensive tackle Jordan Hill (groin) was the other Seahawks player sidelined. He has missed the club’s last three practices with his ailment.

The only other player on the injury report was outside linebacker K.J. Wright (foot). He practiced on a limited basis, a sign he’s on the mend after missing the last 12 practices and four games.

  1. Percy is like Iverson. “We’re talking about practice. We’re talking about practice. We’re not talking about the game. We’re talking about practice!”

  2. Considering the manner with which Marshawn, hammers through defensive lines and secondaries , resting an extra day, versus actively practicing, is probably the best thing for him. I’m hoping that K.J., can play against the Niners. He’s our “other” beast.

  3. If K.J. Wright’s foot isn’t close to 100%, he would be more of a liability than an asset keeping up with Vernon Davis and Anquan Boldin. As for Harvin, he looked good for two plays, but if he got knocked out against the Saints, there are lot more big hitters on the 49ers defense.

  4. Weird how the hawks get to 13-3 without Percy and suddenly the world thinks we can’t win without him.

    Also strange how folks think 2 road wins for the Niners makes them more likely to win road games in Seattle where they have not been successful. (Hint: SF was a pretty good road team before they came to SEA).

    Granted things evolve as the season progresses, but the spoonfed delusion of the average football fan is amusing to watch.

    KJ Wright is essential to Seattle’s success because he can help on Vernon Davis. He’s the guy, and high-IQ fans know this. Granted Harvin makes things much easier, but SEA has been successful without him for 2 full seasons.
