Wright could play; Harvin still uncertain
By Terry Blount
RENTON, Wash. -- Seahawks outside linebacker K.J. Wright had surgery to repair a fractured foot only a month ago, but he could play in Sunday's NFC Championship Game against the 49ers.
"He has a chance," Seattle coach Pete Carroll said Monday. "He ran well [Monday]. We'll take a look at him Wednesday [in practice] and see where he's at. But he definitely has a chance to play. We'll have to wait and see.”
Carroll said the status of receiver Percy Harvin, who suffered a concussion in the first half of the playoff game Saturday against New Orleans, depends on how he makes it through the concussion protocol procedure this week.
"We have to make sure we do the right thing,” Carroll said. "We're not going to stretch the limits on this. We're going to make sure he's OK.”
Carroll said they won't know until Wednesday or Thursday if Harvin is cleared to play. Carroll said there were no other injuries against New Orleans and everyone else is expected to play Sunday.
