Seahawks receiver Percy Harvin has missed most of the season with a hip injury, but he was deemed healthy enough to play in Seattle's divisional playoff win against the Saints last week. But he took two big hits in the contest and sustained a concussion that knocked him out of action.

At this point, it's still unclear whether Harvin will be ready to face the 49ers in the NFC title game Sunday, because Seattle coach Pete Carroll said Thursday that Harvin still hasn't been cleared to practice.

Though that doesn't mean he can't be given the OK between now and Sunday, the Seahawks can't be pleased that their No. 1 receiver still is going through the concussion protocol. If there's any good news to emerge from Sunday for Harvin, though, Carroll had previously said that Harvin's hip held up well.

When Harvin was in the game last Sunday, he caught three passes for 21 yards, but you'd have to figure that his inclusion in the gameplan vs. the 49ers would be welcome.

Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson has badly struggled lately throwing the ball, and a healthy Harvin would give the Seahawks an advantage they haven't had the chance to use for most of the season.
