RENTON, Wash. – Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Percy Harvin will miss Sunday’s NFC championship game after he was not cleared by doctors following a concussion suffered in last week’s playoff game against New Orleans.
Seattle coach Pete Carroll announced Harvin’s status after practice on Friday. Harvin did not participate all week.
Harvin suffered the concussion late in the first half while jumping for a pass in the end zone and hitting his head on the turf as he was being hit by New Orleans’ Malcolm Jenkins. It was the second big hit Harvin absorbed in the game. He was hit in the helmet illegally by Rafael Bush on Seattle’s first possession.
Linebacker K.J. Wright (foot) will play for the first time since Week 14. Wright said he wasn’t sure if he would start.
