The Seattle Seahawks have looked like one of the best teams in the NFL with a 6-1 record so far this season, and may soon be getting a key element of their offense back on the field. WR Percy Harvin, who has yet to play this season after hip surgery in August, returned to the practice field in a limited capacity Tuesday, per the team’s website.
“At first, I was kind of listening to (the doctors) thinking it could be season-ending, or six-to-eight months is what they were thinking,” Harvin said after practice. “But after I prayed on it and after I had the surgery, I was already picking my leg up the night after they did the surgery and I was already riding a (stationary) bike. So there was no doubt in my mind at that point that I could make a quick recovery.”
Seattle acquired Harvin in March in exchange for a 2013 first round pick and a couple of 2014 later round picks, hoping that the versatile receiver and runner could bring a needed game-breaking element to the Seahawks passing game. Harvin’s status at this point is still day-to-day, but seeing him on the practice field is a great boost of confidence for the Seahawks.
Head coach Pete Carroll offered caution when asked if Harvin could possibly suit up for the Seahawk’s game against the Rams Monday night. “We’re going to go one day at a time. This will be one of those things I’ll probably say the same thing every time you ask me.”
Whether or not Harvin is active this weekend, knowing that his return is imminent is a scary thought for the rest of the NFC.
