Seahawks’ Percy Harvin won’t play in NFC title game
By Danny O’Neil
RENTON – Seahawks wide receiver Percy Harvin has been declared out for the NFC Championship Game, coach Pete Carroll said after Friday’s practice.
Harvin suffered a concussion in last Saturday’s playoff game against New Orleans, and while Carroll indicated Harvin will be able to practice next week if the team is still alive, he is out for Sunday’s game.
“It’s super disappointing for Percy,” Carroll said. “He wants to play.”
Added quarterback Russell Wilson: “We’ve played without him all year for the most part. Obviously, we’re disappointed he’s not playing. We wish he was. But his health comes first.”
Linebacker K.J. Wright will be active for the game, returning from the foot injury he sustained on Dec. 8 at San Francisco. Carroll didn’t specify what role Wright would play and whether he would return to his starting spot at weak-side linebacker, but he won’t be limited by his health.
