The Seattle Seahawks are a game away from their second ever Super Bowl berth in franchise history, but one of their key offseason acquisitions still has very little to do with it. Percy Harvin has played in two games for Seattle since coming over in a trade with the Minnesota Vikings, and it’s starting to look like he won’t be playing in his third this weekend.
While his official status hasn’t yet been turned in, Harvin remains out of practice with a concussion and has yet to be cleared for contact again.
Pete Carroll said LB KJ Wright (foot) will practice today. Don’t know yet if he’ll play. Percy Harvin (concussion) won’t practice. #Seahawks

The Seahawks have been mum on his status since he left last Saturday’s NFC Divisional Round game for a second time, but they remain hopeful he’ll play.
Remaining hopeful Harvin will play and believing Harvin will play are two different things and it brings up a question Seahawks fans are currently debating. Harvin hasn’t at all contributed to the Seahawks amazing season and did little other than get himself concussed against the Saints last weekend. Sitting Harvin may be in the best interest of all involved, but we won’t know until later in the week what his official status for Sunday is.
