Notes and video from Pete Carroll’s press conference

Here’s some quick notes from Pete Carroll’s press conference on Monday.

The status of Percy Harvin is still unknown.

“We’ll wait through the week to see what happens” Carroll said. “Wednesday and Thursday will be the important days to figure out what’s going on.”

Carroll said there were no residual problems with Harvin’s hip.

“We are way ahead of the game on that one,” Carroll said.

Since Harvin suffered the concussion on Saturday, the Seahawks get an extra day to get him ready. Carroll hopes that will help Harvin to get back on the field.

“We’ll see what happens, but we are going to treat this with the utmost respect,” Carroll said. “We are going to respect the heck out of this and take care of Percy. We are going to make sure we do the right thing. We are not going stretch the limits at all. We are going to be careful every step of the way.”

It was apparent to Carroll that Harvin was making an impact on the field.

“Shoot, he looked good. He was making some plays. You saw Russell (Wilson) go to him. He got three balls, but he could have had five with a couple big opportunities. It’s just unfortunate that he got out there and got hammered a couple of times. I thought those were legitimate plays and all that. But it’s just unfortunate for him.”

The Seahawks may also get outside linebacker K.J. Wright (foot fracture) back for Sunday.

“K.J. Wright has a chance,” Carroll said. “We are going to take a look at him on Wednesday. He ran well today and over the weekend. He’ll get a rest day tomorrow and he’ll come back out on Wednesday and see where he is. He has a chance. We’re excited about that for him.”

Those were the only injury issues that Carroll discussed.

There has been some discussion about how Russell Wilson has played in the last five games. It isn’t quite the level that people expect, but Carroll didn’t seem too concerned.

“I think he’s doing great,” Carroll said. “I think he’s doing what we need to be doing in these games. We can always do better. He’s very concerned about leading us in a way that keeps our philosophy intact, which is take care of the football and he’s done a great job of that. He’s done that all year long. We ar always looking for more and he is too. But as long as our football team is playing well and playing within the formula of where we are playing good defense, we are running the football and we are taking care of the football and getting it, we are going to have a really good chance to win. That’s what is most important to us. It’s not about the stats and all of that. We didn’t put up a lot of yards against (San Francisco) when we played them at home. Stats have nothing to do with what’s important as far as the game is concerned.”
