Receiver Percy Harvin was listed as one of nine Seahawks who will not play when the team takes the field at Oakland against the Raiders for the fourth and final preseason game Thursday night at 7 p.m.
Harvin missed practices on Tuesday and Wednesday for what coach Pete Carroll said was personal reasons, and the team said he was again being given an excused absence for personal reasons. Harvin did not make the trip to Oakland.
Also sitting out against the Raiders are: Cornerbacks Jeremy Lane and Tharold Simon, running back Christine Michael, tight end Cooper Helfet, linebacker Bruce Irvin, defensive tackle Jimmy Staten, defensive end Michael Bennett and receiver Kevin Norwood.
All have some form of injury and have either been out for a while or missed at least a practice this week.
Lane suffered a groin injury last week against the Bears; it’s unclear what the situation is with Simon but he missed last season with a foot injury; Michael hurt his hamstring on Tuesday in practice; Helfet hurt his knee against the Bears; and Bennett has been nursing a hamstring injury.
Irvin (hip), Staten (hamstring) and Norwood (foot) have all yet to play in the preseason.
It’s thought none of the injured players made the trip.
