Quick notes from Carroll press conference: Harvin expected to practice Wednesday

Here are a few quick notes from Pete Carroll’s session with the media Monday:

— Here’s what he said about the status of WR Percy Harvin and what he would do this week: “We’re practicing on Wednesday. That would be the first chance and I think he has a very good chance to practice based on how he was on the weekend. He was in pretty good shape on the weekend. Still has to go through a couple clearances and all but we are kind of counting on him to be ready. Think he should be.”

— There were no other major injuries. He said WR Doug Baldwin has a sore hip and that DT Brandon Mebane has a sore foot and RB Marshawn Lynch took some hits and will need some rest. But none appear to be anything that would endanger them playing in the Super Bowl.

— Carroll talked at length about talking with Richard Sherman about some of his post-game comments. I will pass along the full quotes on that later. The essence is that he did talk to Sherman and that he noted that Sherman had sent out some statements on various platforms today and that Sherman was sorry that he had detracted from what the team accomplished. (You can read those here).

— He said they saw Jeremy Lane get hit by a non-uniformed member of the 49ers on a punt at the time it happened and he was upset a flag wasn’t thrown. He said they are still waiting to hear from the NFL about the play.

— He said the competition will begin again at LG where James Carpenter and Paul McQuistan split time on Sunday in place of Michael Bowie, who started against the Saints. He said they felt they wanted experienced players against the 49ers. But he noted they now have two weeks to re-assess it.

K.J. Wright played primarily at SLB when he was on the field against the 49ers and Carroll said that’s another spot that they now have some time to re-assess. But he called it a real luxury to have Wright back.

Here is some video of Carroll’s opening statement:
