Carroll says Harvin could practice by Wednesday

Getty Images

Nine days ago, Seahawks receiver Percy Harvin suffered a concussion in the divisional round against the Saints.  Thirteen days from now, he’s expected to have received clearance to play in the Super Bowl.

But first he has to be cleared to practice.  On Monday, coach Pete Carroll told reporters that clearance could come by Wednesday.

Carroll nevertheless conceded that Harvin still must clear a couple more steps before being cleared to practice.  He’d then need to be cleared separately to play.

Anything the Seahawks get from Harvin will be a bonus.  They’ve gotten to the Super Bowl despite only two total appearances from Harvin all year.  They’re capable of winning the game without him.

They’ll be even more capable of winning the game with him.

    Denver should be worried.

  2. jakec4 says: Jan 20, 2014 8:06 PM

    The hope is to get five plays out of him before he suffers his next injury that will keep him out of all off season activities and training camp. They hope to get him back week 1, which means December of next season.

    Just one more guy with character issues to take the field for the Seahawks, but hey, he can help them win. So is the state of the NFL today.

    From the NCAA’s Miami U scandal report:
    “In 2008, Meyer told the press that Harvin and two other players missed four games due to injury. In reality, it appears that Harvin missed those games as a result of a failed drug test and the University required the four game suspension but Meyer made sure to cover for his players. Harvin also reportedly failed a drug test at the NFL Scouting Combine prior to the Vikings drafting him. The most troubling story is the one that tells of Harvin assaulting wide receivers coach Billy Gonzales by throwing him to the ground and putting his hands around his neck. Meyers never let the truth about that incident become public, saying only that “something did happen,” and Gonzales himself claims that the incident was blown out of proportion.”

    Denver’s not worried.

  5. nyyjetsknicks says: Jan 20, 2014 8:14 PM

    I have $20 that says he’s injured before lunch. Any takers?

  6. iamcline says: Jan 20, 2014 8:15 PM

    He’ll blow out his back putting on his shoulder pads. Denver isn’t worried.

    Revenge against horse face go hawks

  8. gb4mn0 says: Jan 20, 2014 8:20 PM

    How happy Harvin must be to have been traded to the Hawks and going to a SB rather than wallowing in the sludge of the cesspool of NFL irrelevancy Minnysoda.

  9. darkneptune73 says: Jan 20, 2014 8:24 PM

    Breaking news: Harvin got hit in the head by a Skittle. His status is doubtful.

  10. meatcarroll says: Jan 20, 2014 8:25 PM

    Gonzales said that report of Harvin assaulting him was a total fabrication and that he loved coaching him. Keep hating, haters.

    Percy Harvin – SuperBowl XLVIII MVP

  14. snoqualmieterry says: Jan 20, 2014 8:26 PM

    Yes he has missed a lot of games. Those two head shots would have taken out most receivers, even Crabtree and Boldin.

  15. 84smooninlambeaunevergetsold says: Jan 20, 2014 8:29 PM

    Hey Denver,
    Nothing to worry about.

    ~ Vikings fan

  16. realitycheckbaby says: Jan 20, 2014 8:29 PM

    Lets face it, Denver is worried regardless.

    A kick return for a TD is icing.

  17. bigbaldpapahawk says: Jan 20, 2014 8:30 PM

    Onward and upward! Go hawks!

  18. jr544 says: Jan 20, 2014 8:31 PM

    Harvin will be a big factor in a seahawks victory

  19. philswfc08 says: Jan 20, 2014 8:36 PM

    Didn’t know Harvin went to Miami U.

  20. bert1913 says: Jan 20, 2014 8:41 PM

    the niners great defense couldn’t stop lynch, how in the world is denver going to do it? plus add harvin to the mix. doesn’t seem fair

  21. bert1913 says: Jan 20, 2014 8:43 PM

    russell needs to stop putting so much air under the ball when throwing to harvin. more balls to the flat, mixed in with a few end arounds should do it

  22. johnkirimi says: Jan 20, 2014 8:46 PM

    Seattle is in the superbowl with Harvin only playing a handful of snaps. If he will be able to play 60 min come 2/2/14, Seattle will be the NFL champs.

  23. rmavs says: Jan 20, 2014 8:49 PM

    Harvin was a Gator…wore jersey number 1.

  24. 88ibis says: Jan 20, 2014 8:49 PM

    Miami U is in Ohio
    U of Miami is in Florida
    Besides, Havin went to U of Florida

  25. bowdowntopeyton says: Jan 20, 2014 8:53 PM

    I can see it now, Vegas prop bet on how much Percy plays in the super bowl: 1/2 quarter

  26. mrwalterisgod says: Jan 20, 2014 8:58 PM

    Denver has a pretty pedestrian defense that the four letter network is obsessed with convincing everyone is good. They’re not. The Pats had nothing on offense outside of Brady and Blount and SD were just meh.

    We’ll see just how well Denver matches up. I wouldn’t be betting on the finesse passing in an outdoor stadium in February.

  27. usdcoyotesfan says: Jan 20, 2014 9:08 PM

    Earlier today, NFL Network said Russell Wilson’s career record is 17-1. It’s really 16-2. Seattle didn’t beat my Packers, the refs did.

  28. purpleppleeaters says: Jan 20, 2014 9:14 PM

    Be VERY careful when you take him out of the box, now. You know what happened the last………………………dozen times.

  29. jayhawk777 says: Jan 20, 2014 9:14 PM

    Denver may not lose sleep, however…..
    It was Jacoby Jones that blew the lid off of denver’s
    defense for 6 to send the game into O.T. that Ravens
    eventually won (manning throws an int. Go figure)

    Harvin will get dangerous single coverage or draw the free which opens up Baldwin or Tate.

    Judt having Percy on the threat changes Denver’s game plan.
    Don’t forget a kickoff return, too.

    If you don’t think his presence makes an impact, then you
    are a football newbie.

  30. thebirdofprey2 says: Jan 20, 2014 9:18 PM

    Honestly you non-Seahawk fans have been so fixated on whether Harvin is going to play for the Hawks or not. I have never seen anything like it before and its funny to me because really what do it matter to you? If I was a Viking fan, I would put a paper-bag on my head before I typed anything.

    Seahawk fans and players said last week if Harvin gets healthy for Super Bowl that we could still beat 49ers (a top 3 defense) with group of WRs that were playing. Manning may move the ball at times on Seattle’s defense because he’s that good. But Wilson/Lynch are going to move the ball on Broncos because they aren’t 49ers, Cardinals, Saints.

  31. realitycheckbaby says: Jan 20, 2014 9:18 PM

    Now Harvin went to U. Of Miami.

    Ha ha ha ha

  32. sweetnlow44 says: Jan 20, 2014 9:22 PM

    A much needed shot in the arm for a struggling offense (thepftpoet will LOVE that pun)

  33. ad28bestever says: Jan 20, 2014 9:34 PM

    He will be a non factor like he has been all season long. He will be lucky to make it through the game. Bronco’s 28 Seacowards 17

  34. behike54 says: Jan 20, 2014 9:40 PM

    Sore Percy seems to be getting a lesson in karma.

  35. jwcarlson says: Jan 20, 2014 9:41 PM

    Peyton Manning with surgically place Richard Sherman’s foot in his mouth. A Denver blow out couldn’t happen to a more deserving fanbase in Seattle.

  36. kolbydoerge says: Jan 20, 2014 9:42 PM

    Seahawks and Broncos ONLY. We don’t need to hear from whiners anymore. Sherm shut you up remember? Classic game coming but in the end Seattle is just too good.

  37. wkdblc52 says: Jan 20, 2014 10:13 PM

    It will be good to have Percy in the game in two weeks to take away some of the nauseous constant Manning talk we are about to be inundated with. Harvin (will) make a difference in this game.

    Manning is so over rated, he reminds me of Marino; as long as he can throw touchdown passes and pad his over inflated stats he’s personally happy ! I still think he’s selfish and anything the Seahawks can do to win by having Percy play will make me happy !

  38. mediasloppy says: Jan 20, 2014 10:15 PM

    It’s very funny listening to Seahawk fans talk about not needing Percy all year and now act like he is a God among his peers. I think your receivers were just complaining about not getting credit…

    The Vikings again finished in last place in the NFC North.

  42. joenash72 says: Jan 20, 2014 10:59 PM

    The game between the two best teams in the NFL yesterday in Seattle gave us the next SuperBowl champion. As a Seahawk fan sad to see Bowwman and Iuapati get injured, actually only two players on the Niners that I like 😦

  43. norcalmafia says: Jan 20, 2014 11:12 PM

    I’m being dead serious..When the he’ll did one of the least popular teams in the NFL get so many fans?Sea hawks bandwagon is full…Guess what you had a great year and your still gonna start next year with ZERO rings

  44. atwatercrushesokoye says: Jan 20, 2014 11:21 PM

    Seahawks fans are delusional, have you watched your offense? It’s not “unstoppable” in fact it’s middle of the road at best. DRC will cover Harvin (when he’s in) Bailey on Tate and Carter on Baldwin. The problem will Seattle’s pass O is their QB, Wilson makes some plays but as has been proven all year he’s not a QB who will sit back and pick you apart (the first game against NO being the one exception). He has more games below 200 yards passing than he does more than 300 yards, make him beat you from the pocket with his arm and the Broncos are in great shape. And adding a receiver who has very few game reps (games are much faster than practices, playoff games faster than regular season games and Super Bowls fastest of all) and has taken very few hits this year and who doesn’t have a rhythm with Wilson and the O won’t change all of that overnight.

    Lynch is tough but Denver has allowed 1 100 yard rusher all year, their run defense is their strength, they’ll hope to limit any potential damage.

    Finally no the Broncos D isn’t the 49ers D but the Broncos offense isn’t the 49ers O either, the Seahawks haven’t faced an offense like this, they’ll have a battle on their hands.

  45. favrelous says: Jan 20, 2014 11:29 PM

    I am happy for what the vikes got for harvin. But, he has the ability to completely take over the Super Bowl as a returner, receiver and runner.

  46. osiris33 says: Jan 20, 2014 11:46 PM

    You Broncos fans are amusing, but delusional. You will be physically beaten down just like you were in the pre-season when your #1’s went against ours. And that was with pure vanilla schemes. Imagine how much worse it’s going to be when we game plan.

  47. twisteditoff says: Jan 21, 2014 2:33 AM

    drug test the moohawks and there will have 5 players left to play there losers for life andother sb loss but you have a db with huge lips and even bigger love me just like some of the other members count it flyingmoohAWKS will lose count on it losers

  48. rrthomasxyz says: Jan 21, 2014 3:20 AM

    Hey Seahawk fans, get the word to Maclemore to write a rap song that has the rhythm of OPP by NWA and has the chorus LOB yeah you know me….

  49. rpwjr3 says: Jan 21, 2014 4:03 AM

    I can’t wait for the Seahawks to destroy Denver! I hate Denver ever since Elway. They have been a AFC rival of Seattle. (when Seattle was in the AFC for those who don’t know)

    I’m really excited to see how Denver does against a top notch Defense. Both Seattle and Denver lost to Indi this year. Should be an epic Super Bowl.

    I think you should all be Seahawk fans. But if you want to ride the Bronco train get ready for the “BOOM”!

  50. bobnelsonjr says: Jan 21, 2014 5:03 AM

    Before the trade, viking people loved Harvin and outrageously claimed he was MVP material.

    Then he demanded a trade from the vikings and suddenly they said he wasn’t good anymore.

    Yet he is on a team that just won the George Halas trophy (the vikings have zero trophies).

    Now that Harvin could be wearing a Super Bowl ring it is causing that viking jealousy to burn more than usual.

    Demanding a trade from the vikings as expected has been very good for Harvin.

  51. lostsoulsdomain says: Jan 21, 2014 5:27 AM

    Wow comedy comes as easy to half of you as ripping not funny puns and or jokes, I only read half of these quality insight comments, I’m sad that Vikings fan who keeps talking about winning trades didn’t show up, but getting hit with a skittle funny guy did, at least the “America became broncos fans for one day” hasn’t spoken yet, ugh seriously I’m back in 3rd grade with these clever comments…

  52. The League's Crusade Against The Steelers Continues says: Jan 21, 2014 8:19 AM

    1 reception for 17 yards this year.

    Don’t forget the time that Percy hurled that weight at Head Coach Brad Childress in the weight room! (Not that he didn’t deserve it!!)

  54. hawktawker says: Jan 21, 2014 9:14 AM

    Proud of my Hawks!! Go get that trophy boys!!!

  55. sluggoseam says: Jan 21, 2014 10:11 AM

    … And Harvin’s college career has exactly what relevance to him coming back from a concussion?

  56. cluelessdufus says: Jan 21, 2014 10:18 AM

    Not a Seahawks fan, actually a Vikings fan and when Harvin is healthy he too dangerous for lots of defenses and considering the Seahawks did fine without him against the 49ers really can be something to think about. We all know he injury prone but, that hit that bush delivered to his head isn’t easy to shrug off. If Harvin is ready, he can change the game in a heartbeat and we all have seen it before. I really despise the Seahawks but, I can’t hate them and hopefully this is an interesting game.

  57. nineball26 says: Jan 22, 2014 12:03 AM

    nah, the Donkeys arent worried, with or without Harving they are still in big trouble, they know its not seattles offense thats insurmountable, its the defense that will stop them, they can both prevent the Donks from scoring and take the ball away and score on the very same down..

    and theres not a whole lot they can do about it, want to run? go ahead Seattle forces a fummel, want to pass? yea theres a brain stormer, can you say, pick six?

    fact of the matter is the seahawks are about 6 miles higher than the Donks in terms of talent, dont buy that you might wanna rewind the NFC title game, Clutch? has to be abetter word for it.. look what they did to the #2 team in the NFL..

    hard hitting?



    all of that and more, Hawks aren’t no dog and pony show by a long shot, they are the REAL DEAL, you need to prep for the water boy, HE’S BETTER THAN YOUR WATER BOY!!

    yup, logic says I’m looking for something like the preseason matchup result, 40-10 Hawks

    GO HAWKS!!!
