Percy Harvin still not cleared to practice

The Seahawks are running low on time to get wide receiver Percy Harvin back for the NFC Championship Game.

Coach Pete Carroll said Thursday that Harvin will not practice again on Thursday because he’s still awaiting clearance from doctors after suffering a concussion in last weekend’s victory over the Saints. Harvin went to see doctors on Wednesday, but he hasn’t passed the test mandated by the league’s protocol for concussions and will need to also pass another test to get cleared for Sunday’s game.

The Seahawks will be holding out hope that Harvin can play as long as they can, but they won’t be panicking if they’re without a player who has played in just two of their 17 games this season.

“We’ve been just fine without him,” wide receiver Golden Tate said, via Liz Mathews of 710 ESPN.

Tate, Doug Baldwin and Jermaine Kearse would be the top three wide receivers if Harvin isn’t able to go against San Francisco.

    Cordarelle Patterson is laughing out loud right now.

    I can’t wait to watch the Seahawks get blown out by the 49ers this week.

    There’s a reason your team has never won a championship.

    Your team is an embarrassment to the NFL.

    49ers: 45
    Seahawks: 14

    Good trade. They’ll be lucky if he plays 10 games next year after he’s healed. Percy and the Vikes knew about the hip before the trade. Everyone knew he was a headcase literally and figuratively.

    Percy Harvin = soft

    i’ll be surprised if he’s cleared.

    Old Hips and Headaches couldn’t handle the Saints’ D last week. It might be in his best interest not to play this week… against a physical defense…

    He misses the good old days at Florida.

    Surprise, this is big boy football!

    A Viking fan trashing the Seahawks for not winning a Superbowl? The irony…

  11. doe22us says: Jan 16, 2014 4:35 PM

    What difference would it make, he hasnt played all season anyway.

    Big miss on the Harvin trade so far. The legs only have that kind of explosion for a number of years. Losing even one year is massive.

    …”embarrassment to the NFL…”
    Grow up.

    Percy was NOT traded for Patterson. The pick was the one that picked Xavier Rhoades.

    Again, has he EVER been cleared to play? I can’t remember…

    Poocy Harvin is a victim of his own hard running style. Great player, but needs to learn how to avoid hits

    Let him play, bring in three of him. It won’t matter.

  19. tap79 says: Jan 16, 2014 5:21 PM

    Well they need to make up their mind on whether he is going to pay or not.. Although our offense looked a lot better while he was in it makes me think part of the reason they slumped after he was gone was due to the fact that most of the play calls were made for him… I hope he is in there we sure can use him but he needs to be able to stay in the game if he is and if he cant make that happen then they need to make a strategy that doesn’t involve him.

    Either way I am not worried the Hawks got this. It would just be nice to see him play some. I guess we have one more day to find out.

    Seeing Harvin get hit was like watching the Waterboy take out that QB…

    Who dat. Who dere?

  21. stagedoorjohnny says: Jan 16, 2014 7:13 PM

    Hello – folks this is NOT Percy Harvin’s decision to make. It’s all in the hands of the doctor (s) that are evaluating him.
    If he’s cleared – then great. If not, then for God’s sake get well.
    It’s just a game folks. Just a game.

    This guy is such a girl

  23. seattlesue427 says: Jan 16, 2014 7:57 PM

    As long as he’s ready for the Super Bowl, I’m okay with him sitting out this week.

    You don’t want none of this Niner stuff! You and the Seahags can go home Sunday. Facial!

    i have 2 words for all haters: beast mode

  26. snoqualmieterry says: Jan 16, 2014 8:21 PM

    Why are most Bay Area fans so filled with hatred? It used to be just Raider fans. There must be something in the water. You have a great team 49er fans. Why so much hate? It should be a great, hard fought game. Player to player both teams are similiar. Running, passing and especially defence. If Niner fans really think the Seahawks or their fans are beneath them, that is sad.

    Harvin, even writing about he, is a joke. Should the Seahawks lose, a distinct possibility, does Harvin stay. Will Seattle rid themselves of this deadwood? Does Pete Carroll become a real actor and win an Oscar?

  28. stagedoorjohnny says: Jan 16, 2014 10:21 PM

    Just read where Percy Harvin failed some tests yesterday, as was expected, continues to improve and is expected to play Sunday.
    Go Percy!
