Seattle Seahawks WR Percy Harvin’s Concussion Status Will Decide Availability for NFC Championship Game

Saints vs. Seahawks

Joe Nicholson-USA TODAY Sports

Percy Harvin was probably pumped to get back onto the football field, but he quickly received a concussion in the Seattle Seahawks 23-15 divisional round playoff win. They overcame the New Orleans Saints, and will get to host the San Francisco 49ers next week.

“The poor kid,” Seattle coach Pete Carroll said to the News Tribune’s Todd Miles. “He finally gets to play and he banged his head against the turf really hard. He was OK the first time, but the second one really rocked him. Unfortunately, he was just sick about the thought that he couldn’t go back out.”

Harvin played well in the first quarter getting three receptions for 21 yards, and the Seahawks’ passing offense suffered throughout the rest of the game as a result. My dad called the Seahawks like a mix among the Raiders, the Cowboys, and the Bengals, which cracked me up pretty good. He was not so subtly suggesting that they might be guilty of PED use, but in this day and age it is all about what you can actually prove.

Harvin’s status for the NFC Championship Game is still up in the air, but you can bet that we will keep you updated on the latest here at Rant Sports. Got one more football piece coming at you today, and then we will be cashing in the chips for the night. Thanks as always.
