The news on Percy Harvin today was no better than it was Wednesday.
Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said prior to practice that Harvin is “still going through the process, the (NFL’s concussion) protocol and we don’t know” when he may be able to return. Carroll said Harvin would not practice.
Harvin suffered a concussion Saturday against the Saints, and now must follow that protocol (details here).
Asked if there is a deadline for when Harvin would need to be cleared, Carroll said there is a “deadline from the doctors” but that he doesn’t know when that is.
Asked to elaborate on the deadline, Carroll said that Harvin “has a process to go through” and that he had “no indications yet” to tell if he may be ready to play Sunday against the 49ers.
Missing Thursday’s obviously makes it more uncertain that he will play.
Carroll had better news on LB K.J. Wright, who practiced in a limited fashion Wednesday.
“He’s done fine, so far but today will be a big day for him,” Carroll said. “He was limited yesterday but it looked like there were no problems. But we’ll have to wait and see.”
I’ll have a little more on Wright soon.
