According to Mike Garafolo’s sources, the Seahawks expect to have WR Percy Harvin available for the Super Bowl.
Garafolo adds that Harvin “never really had a shot to play in the NFC Championship Game,” and the team was going to be cautious this week no matter what given that he suffered a concussion last week.
Seattle has managed to secure the No. 1 overall seed and defeat two good playoff teams without any real contribution from Harvin. Clearly, their passing game could use help, so it will be interesting to see what Harvin can do in Super Bowl.
Seahawks HC Pete Carroll announced Friday after noon that WR Percy Harvin will not play in Sunday’s NFC Championship Game against the 49ers.
“He will not make it through the doctor’s protocol,” Carroll said. “It’s super disappointing for Percy. He wants to play.”
Carroll added that Harvin is expected to return next week in the event they get past San Francisco.
Given that it’s already Friday, it’s not looking like Harvin will be able to pass the required protocol in time to gain clearance for Sunday’s NFC Championship Game against the 49ers.
Since coming over from the Vikings, Harvin has dealt with numerous setbacks that have relegated him to playing just 20 snaps this season, according to Pro Football Focus. On the year, Harvin has one reception for 17 yards.
