According to Seattle Seahawks coach Pete Carroll, wide receiver Percy Harvin still has not been cleared to play in Sunday’s NFC Championship game, as reported by ESPN’s Adam Schefter. Per NFL concussion policy, Harvin consulted with team doctors Wednesday to determine whether he could return to practice this week.

Harvin played in just one regular season game this year while battling a hip injury. He returned last week for Seattle’s divisional round game against New Orleans and caught three passes for 21 yards before leaving with a concussion.

@bulletrico Harvin will beg to play this weekend and some how will be miraculously healed to play.  Then in 10 years he will sue the NFL for millions saying they put him at risk.

@MikeKing @bulletrico If that was meant as a bit of social commentary on the current case, Harvin suing 10 years from now would be an entirely different case that likely would not get much traction. Fact is the League cared little about concussions back in the day, medical evaluations were sub-standard if at all existent, and there was considerable pressure for players to play through their injuries. Headaches and blurred vision were treated as being 'all in their heads' or just something to be treated by a week of rest. So yes, the NFL did inadvertently if not maliciously destroy lives, and the medical costs associated with the destruction and loss of life is in the millions.
