The Seahawks got wide receiver Percy Harvin back at practice this week and coach Pete Carroll said Friday that it is all systems go for the wide receiver who missed the NFC Championship Game because of a concussion.
Harvin also missed 15 of the 16 regular season games with a hip injury, but Carroll said, via Curtis Crabtree of PFT and KJR, that the team does not anticipate managing Harvin’s snaps at all. According to Carroll, Harvin will “do everything we want him to do” during Super Bowl XLVIII.
Carroll said that includes returning kicks, which is part of the game plan that the Seahawks have spent this week installing. There will be tweaks and adjustments once the team arrives in New Jersey on Sunday, but the key pieces are in place ahead of a week that will be spent attending to the media and other demands that come with playing in the Super Bowl.
Carroll also said that the team isn’t concerned about the health of running back Marshawn Lynch and wide receiver Doug Baldwin. Neither has practiced this week, but the coach said that they’re just being managed to make sure they’re set to go a week from Sunday.
