Seahawks coach Pete Carroll met with the media Friday to provide his last updates before the team’s road game this weekend against the New York Giants.
Carroll said the only players not expected to be available are receiver Percy Harvin (hip), cornerback Brandon Browner (groin) and linebacker KJ Wright, who underwent surgery on his foot this week and will be out until the playoffs.
Tight end Zach Miller (rib) was able to return to practice after sitting out Wednesday and Thursday. Center Max Unger, who was limited Thursday with a pectoral injury, is also expected to be ready to go.
Defensive lineman Tony McDaniel didn’t practice Friday due to an illness, but Carroll said “he’ll be all right.”
Harvin’s absence, it seems, might extend beyond the weekend.
“It’s looking like it’s going to be a bit before we get it right,” Carroll said of Harvin. “He’s doing a ton of stuff to get back, but it hasn’t just turned a corner. We’re going to just keep taking the time it takes to get him right.
“We still have a number of games left, hopefully, and if we can get him in, we’ll take it when he comes.”
Lastly, asked about Wright’s surgery, Carroll said as far as he knew, it was routine, “so it should be fine.”
#SEAvsNYG Game Status – OUT: Wright, Harvin, Browner. PROBABLE: Miller, Unger, Lynch, Sherman, Morgan, Baldwin, Clemons, McDaniel.
