Percy Harvin (concussion) ruled out of Sunday’s game against San Francisco

Receiver Percy Harvin has been ruled out Sunday’s NFC Championship game against the San Francisco 49ers due to a concussion suffered in the divisional round, according to coach Pete Carroll.

“He will not make it through the doctor’s protocol and will not be able to go,” Carroll said Friday.

Harvin wasn’t able to practice Wednesday or Thursday, an indication that he wasn’t in line for a quick return. He is would be expected to return to practice next week, should Seattle advance, ahead of the Super Bowl on Feb. 2.

Asked how disappointing it is, Carroll said “it’s super disappointing for Percy first. He wants to play. You could see it — he played his tail off when he had the chance. It’s just an unfortunate circumstance.”

On a positive note, linebacker K.J. Wright will return to action after a broken foot has kept him out since Dec. 8.

“We’re really excited about that — an incredible recovery,” Carroll said of Wright. ” To have surgery six weeks ago and now he’s playing, so many people did well … to get here. His mentality has been to play the whole time.”
