Receiver Percy Harvin has missed the last two Seahawks football games with a sore, tight hip, and it doesn’t appear he will be ready to face the Giants in the Meadowlands this Sunday.
Seattle coach Pete Carroll updated the Harvin situation during his Wednesday press conference by saying “when he gets on the practice field it is truly day to day. Then we’ll see how he responds. As of today he’s running in his rehab work. We have to see whether he can tolerate it and come back to give us a couple days of work.”
Carroll confirmed linebacker K.J. Wright had surgery to repair a cracked foot bone, but did not know how long he might be out. Malcolm Smith has played the (WIL) in college and during his time with Seattle, and told reporters he is comfortable moving from the other side.
A number of front line players did not participate in the Wednesday practice, including TE Zach Miller (ribs), C Max Unger (pec), CB Richard Sherman (foot), WR Doug Baldwin (neck), and RB Marshawn Lynch (shoulder). Back up LB Mike Morgan also sat out with a knee injury.
Cornerback Brandon Browner (groin) will not practice this week, and there is still no ruling from the NFL on his appeal of a potential one-year suspension for violating the substance abuse policy.
There were plenty of questions asked concerning possible snow in New Jersey during the game, but the latest forecast calls for a high of 46 with a chance of rain on Sunday.
