Harvin to sit out again; Miller, Unger ready for Seahawks
Center Max Unger and tight end Zach Miller are both probable for the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday against the New York Giants and Percy Harvin’s recovery continues to be slow.
Unger and Miller were both listed as probable on Friday’s injury report. Unger has a pectoral injury that limited him earlier in the week. Miller missed two days of practice with a rib injury.
Also probable are Richard Sherman (foot), Marshawn Lynch (shoulder) and Doug Baldwin (neck). Only Brandon Browner (groin), K.J. Wright (foot) and Harvin were ruled out.
”All of the guys were out there that we were taking care of. Everyone made it back today,” Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said after practice.
Carroll said that Harvin has been unable to overcome the lingering soreness in his hip following his season debut in Week 11 against Minnesota.
Harvin worked to get back following hip surgery in August, but has been unable to get back on the field since. Harvin had one reception and had a long kickoff return the only two times he touched the ball in his one Seahawks appearance.
”It’s looking like it’s going to be a bit before we get it right. He’s doing a ton of stuff to get back, but he hasn’t just turned the corner. We’re going to just keep taking the time it takes to get him right,” Carroll said.
The team has said there is nothing structurally wrong, but Carroll said the fact Harvin has not been cleared to return to practice means he’s still vulnerable.
”We’re going to make sure that we take our time and see when that time comes,” Carroll said. ”We still have a number of games left, hopefully. If we can get him in there, we’ll take him when he comes.”
