Seattle Seahawks star WR Percy Harvin is making good progress from his hip injury, but he definitely won’t be back when eligible in Week 7 and part of that is by design. Even though they were upset by the Indianapolis Colts yesterday, the Seahawks know that they are good enough and have the luxury of pushing back Harvin’s return until they really feel like they need him. He’ll most likely play a few weeks before the start of the playoffs, and the earliest he plays is probably Week 11.

So the real important stuff with Percy Harvin is news regarding his recovery, and all of those reports have been extremely positive to this point. According to ESPN 710 Seattle’s Liz Mathews, Percy Harvin began running again last week in New York on his rehab, and he is set to return to Seattle this week, according to Seahawks coach Pete Carroll.

It’s great to hear that Harvin continues to make good progress, and it will be interesting to see when he is fully healthy. That date will almost definitely be several weeks before he actually makes his return for the Seahawks, and this team certainly has enough talent to get by on without Harvin. Doug Baldwin is as efficient as they come, Sidney Rice is solid, and Golden Tate has looked good this year. But just imagine how good they will be with Percy Harvin, and it’s downright scary the kind of dimension he will bring to this team.
