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.
