Pete Carroll: Seahawks are “healthy” as Super Bowl approaches

The Seahawks’ injury report signals the club doesn’t have any real injury concerns entering Sunday’s game vs. the Broncos.

After practice on Thursday, Seahawks coach Pete Carroll affirmed as much.

“Everybody is fine.” Carroll told Jenny Vrentas of SI.com, who filed the media practice report for the Pro Football Writers of America. “No issues at all. It’s fantastic to have everybody going, knowing that everybody is healthy. Of course they’re excited about that, too. We’re very fortunate in that sense.”

According to Vrentas, Seahawks wideout Percy Harvin “ran quickly and with a spring in his step” in practice. Harvin, whom the Seahawks acquired for a first-round pick in March, is on pace to play just his third game of the 2013 campaign after missing much of the regular season with a hip injury. Harvin also missed the NFC title game with a concussion.

Also, Carroll noted that tailback Marshawn Lynch is good to go after a day off on Wednesday.

“Resting him on Wednesday really helps him get ready for the ball games,” Carroll said.

The Seahawks practiced inside at the Giants’ practice facility for a second straight day. Their final full practice of the week is Friday.

    Russell stretches out his legs diligently every day, hoping to one day reach that magical 6 foot landmark.

    It’s nice that coach gives Beast a day off.

    If I had to run into two, three or four guys who each weighed 250-300 lbs, then carry them all for another 4 to 6 yards before hitting the ground, seven or ten times each week, I would want to take Wednesdays off from practice, too.

    Great News…….Both teams will be at full speed, it appears. Should be a great game. Looking forward to it. Longest week of the year…………

    So we’re expecting Percy to be able to take a hit and not get hurt, now.

    As a Hawks fan it would be great if Percy Harvin had a great game.

    Meanwhile, the 49ers are banged up, but coach Jim Harbaugh says that’s fine because they have 7 months to recover.

    I’m so glad that everybody is healthy and is ready. We are ready to watch you not only play but have fun out there. Just one more game. That’s all it is

    How crazy would it be if Percy Harvin caught fire and earns Superb Owl MVP after missing virtually the entire season until now?

    And the medicine cabinet is full.

    Harvin won’t be healthy once someone hits him.

    I don’t see how this game wouldn’t live up to expectations, but I think it’s a stretch to think Percy will play a main factor in this game. I only see that happening if Denver decides to leave him open all day and not bite on his more probable role as a diversion. I think this is an instant classic in the making, altho a breakout game by Harvin could catapult it to one of the best games in History.
