Seahawks injury update: Percy Harvin won’t practice today; KJ Wright will

Seahawks receiver Percy Harvin, who suffered a concussion in Saturday’s win over New Orleans, won’t practice today, but that’s not necessarily bad news as much as it is the realities of the league’s concussion protocol. Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said of Harvin, “He’ll see the doctors this afternoon. I won’t have an update for you until after that.”

Depending on how he checks out when he sees doctors this afternoon, Harvin could be cleared for limited activity Thursday, then if that goes well, could be on the field fully Friday. Of course things could also not go well, and Harvin could end up missing the game. With concussion, there’s just no real way to predict how an individual will respond.

The good news for the Seahawks on the injury front is that linebacker K.J. Wright will practice today for the first time since fracturing his foot in San Francisco on Dec. 8. Wright had surgery following that injury and has missed the last four games, but does have a chance to make it back for the NFC championship game.

“KJ Wright’s practicing,” Carroll said. “He went through the walkthrough and he’s gong to be practicing today. We’ll see what that means, we’ll go day-to-day and see how he progresses during the week, but it looks promising, he’s got a chance.”
