Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Percy Harvin will play in Super Bowl XLVIII after missing the NFC Championship game with a concussion, reports Jayson Jenks of the Seattle Times.

Harvin played only 39 snaps and two games all season and had to leave the field twice during Seattle's Divisional Round playoff victory against the New Orleans Saints after receiving big hits.

Harvin missed most of the season with a hip injury after having surgery in August, but said the hip feels "pretty good, good enough to play in a football game," according to the Seattle Times.

"I’m trying to go out there and win a Super Bowl. I’m not trying to save or be a hero," Harvin said.
“It was unfortunate some of the hits that were caused in the game,” Harvin said, “but I didn’t think they were targeting me."
