Joe Nicholson-USA TODAY Sports

Injuries ruled the NFL news on Friday.

It's the time of year when teams are limping to the finish line. The Seattle Seahawks and San Francisco 49ers will play for the NFC Championship, and the New England Patriots and Denver Broncos will play for the AFC Championship. All four teams are dealing with injuries leading into Championship Sunday, too.

Percy Harvin won't play for the Seahawks, according to Jeff Darlington of NFL Network. However, it appears 49ers cornerback Carlos Rogers will be available this weekend. He at least expects to play, according to KNBR in San Francisco.

Here's the rest of the NFL news you may have missed on Friday.
