Then Carroll showed the confidence he has in his team winning Sunday because he said of Harvin, “He’ll be back practicing next week.”

Harvin suffered a concussion in last Saturday’s game against the New Orleans Saints and had to leave the game.

Meanwhile, Carroll said starting linebacker K.J. Wright, who had fractured his foot earlier in the season, would be playing in Sunday’s game.

“He’s had an incredible recovery,” the coach said. “Surgery six weeks ago … he’s going to play.”

Carroll also said that the players “had a good week” of practices. “Everybody’s tuned in. We’re really pumped about this opportunity.”
