Pete Carroll said Monday that the only injury issue Percy Harvin has is from the possible concussion during Saturday’s game.
Other than that, there were no new injuries from the game.
Harvin will go through the regular concussion protocol. Repeating what he said this morning, Carroll said he’ll have more of an idea Wednesday or Thursday about Harvin’s status.
“We’re going to respect the heck out of this one, take care of Percy and make sure we do the right thing,” Carroll said. “We’re not going stretch the limits on this at all. We’ve got to be very careful here, so we’ll do that every step of the way.”
To the quick hits:
> K.J. Wright ran again today. Carroll said he has “a chance to make it” this Sunday.
> Carroll said getting the players not to look ahead at this point is “the ultimate challenge I have to keep our focus on what’s going on right now, so we can have a really good Wednesday. This is championship time. The preparation leads all to this, then we’ll start all over again in a couple of weeks, if we’re fortunate enough.”
> Carroll on the 49ers’ linebackers: “The heart of the problem is those four guys.”
> Carroll said he thought the hits on Harvin were “legit” and called right.
> Carroll said he wishes he had challenged the fumble by Saints running back Khiry Robinson. He said it was a play that could be challenged and he thought he should have put it on the referees to take another look.
> Russell Wilson said he was purposely trying to aim low Saturday to deal with the elements.
> Wilson said he thinks there is “definitely room for improvement on my part.” But, also, that he always thinks that.
> More Wilson: “At the end of the day, not everything is going to be perfect.”
> And, Wilson on if being conservative (a reporter’s term) with the ball kind of fights the competitor in him: “The competitor in me always wants to make the smart decision.”
> Wilson on moving on to Super Bowl: “To do that, we have to play the best 60 minutes of our life.”
> Carroll mentioned that Jim Harbaugh tried to recruit his son, Nate, to play for the University of San Diego. “I wasn’t there for the home visit, though,” Carroll said.
