There were talks about Seattle Seahawks WR Percy Harvin being held out until the playoffs in order to rest his busted hip, but after he had a little procedure done, coach Pete Carroll is optimistic about getting him back on the field.
“I’ve already heard from the trainers [Tuesday] morning,” Carroll said on his 710 ESPN Seattle radio show. “Percy came in jacked up. He had a little procedure done last week that made a difference.
“So, I’m going to always err on the optimistic side. But he feels really good and we’re looking forward to a really good week and see what happens.”
Harvin made his Seahawks debut a couple of weeks ago against the Minnesota Vikings and had a nice 58-yard kickoff return and a 17-yard grab, but left the game sore and was unable to play in the next game against the New Orleans Saints. It was a little setback, but if he is able to get back on the field and get some reps this weekend, then the Seahawks just added another powerful weapon to that machine they have over there.
