RENTON, Wash. -- Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Percy Harvin and cornerback Brandon Browner will both be out for Sunday's game at San Francisco, coach Pete Carroll said Friday.

The decision to hold the pair out isn't surprising, although the Seahawks were hopeful both would make progress coming back from injuries this week. Browner has been out since Week 10 with a groin injury suffered against Atlanta, while Harvin continues to deal with soreness in his comeback from hip surgery. Harvin made his season debut in Week 11 against Minnesota but has been unable to get back on the field since.

Carroll said that next week -- with Seattle having a full week of preparations -- will be important in Harvin's recovery.

"We're looking forward to next week being a really important week. We think we got a shot at it. So it's important for us to go ahead," Carroll said. "I don't care about making that statement now that we're hoping for us is a big week for us with him. It'll be kind of week-to-week in a sense as we go forward."

Browner was ahead of schedule in his recovery from a groin injury. Carrroll said this week they initially believed it would be six weeks before Browner had a chance to return, but he practiced in a limited fashion on Wednesday. He did not practice either Thursday or Friday.

"We didn't make much progress there. So we did not bring him back out," Carroll said.

Outside linebacker Bruce Irvin will be able to play after missing two days of practice this week with a thigh injury. He was a full participant in Friday's practice. The only other concern for Seattle is backup quarterback Tarvaris Jackson, who missed the last two days of practice with an illness.

Carroll also said that James Carpenter will start at left guard against the 49ers. Carpenter and Paul McQuistan had been rotating at the position the past few weeks.

"He's earned that shot to do that and we've told him a couple of weeks ago we'd be in this type of rotation to give these guys a chance to really battle," Carroll said. "I love the fact that here we are, this late in the season, that we're still competing for spots."
