The Seahawks will kick off their practice week without wide receiver Percy Harvin.
That was the word from coach Pete Carroll on Wednesday afternoon, via Curtis Crabtree of PFT. Harvin suffered a concussion in the first half against the Saints and will see doctors again on Wednesday afternoon to evaluate his recovery. Harvin will need to receive separate clearances both to return to practice and to play against the 49ers in the NFC Championship Game.
While Harvin is on the sideline, linebacker K.J. Wright will be on the practice field. Wright has missed the last four games with a broken foot, but Carroll said earlier this week that Wright “has a chance” of playing on Sunday. Wednesday’s practice will give them a chance to see how realistic a chance that is after a long spell on the injured list.
The Seahawks have fared well without Wright in the lineup, but a linebacker versatile enough to play on all three downs is always a nice piece to have available.
