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.
