RENTON, Wash.  -- Wide receiver Percy Harvin could be back to practice later this week for the Seattle Seahawks and is expected to be available for the Super Bowl.

Harvin missed Sunday's NFC championship game win over San Francisco after suffering a concussion a week earlier in the divisional playoff win over New Orleans. Harvin was not cleared by doctors in time to play against the 49ers.

Seattle coach Pete Carroll said Monday that Harvin could be cleared in time to practice as early as Wednesday. Carroll said that was based on how Harvin was feeling over the weekend, but there were still "a couple of clearances" needed before he could practice.

Harvin had three receptions against New Orleans before getting hurt late in the first half. It was the second game of the season for Harvin, who had hip surgery in August.
