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.
