The Seahawks are off the field following their last practice of the season at the VMAC. They will travel to New Jersey on Sunday and then spend the following week there preparing for the Super Bowl.
And the biggest news as the Seahawks wrapped up practices here is that receiver Percy Harvin made it through just fine, on the field for all three workouts here this week as he comes back from a concussion suffered against New Orleans.
“He did great,” coach Pete Carroll said today. “He looked like he was full speed, 100 percent the whole time. Had no problem with installation and all that. He looks ready to go — no hesitation in saying that.”
Carroll said Harvin would play with no limitations and would be fully involved in the game plan.
“He’s playing and doing everything we want him to do,” Carroll said. “He’ll be fully involved in the kicking game and all of that.”
Carroll said LB K.J. Wright was limited in practice today but that that was “just to make sure we get him through the week.” Wright played against the 49ers five weeks after breaking his foot. Carroll suggested Wright will start the Super Bowl.
WR Doug Baldwin (hip) and RB Marshawn Lynch (knee) have been held out or limited in practice this week, as well.
But Carroll said there are no questions about their availability for the Super Bowl.
“Both guys got banged around a little bit (in the 49ers game) but both will be fine,” he said. “They are (officially listed as) probable to play and all of that. But they are more than that. They are going to go. They will be fine.”
Carroll also said DT Brandon Mebane, who has been on the injury report with an ankle injury, is fine.
Carroll also hinted that the left guard rotation of James Carpenter and Paul McQuistan will remain, saying it is more likely the Seahawks would go in that direction rather than going with Michael Bowie, who started the New Orleans game.
And here is some video of Carroll speaking today, including his initial comments on Harvin:
