All indications are that the Seattle Seahawks will have Percy Harvin available for their divisional round game, and that would be excellent news indeed. At one point, the ‘Hawks were worried that they would have to place the playmaking wide receiver on the injured reserve and officially end all hope of him playing in the playoffs, but that line of thought changed earlier this week. Harvin worked out a few times with star quarterback Russell Wilson, and it was reported that Harvin looked so good that Pete Carroll and the Seahawks changed their minds. He’s finally making progress again after a setback on his hip injury following his 2013 debut, and Seahawks players such as Wilson are quite optimistic that Harvin can play next week.
It looks like Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll is optimistic as well, and it looks like Harvin will be able to practice everyday next week. According to the Everett Herald’s John Boyle, Carroll did everything at practice yesterday with the exception of a two-minute drill, and Carroll stated that Harvin “looked good” at practice. That description falls in line with reports we’ve heard, as Seahawks players anonymously told ESPN’s Ed Werder earlier this week that Harvin looked great catching passes from Wilson.
Carroll stated that Harvin is day-to-day, which is what he said about Harvin in the lead-up to his Seahawks debut. I wouldn’t put my eggs in Harvin’s basket due to his injury history and aggravations this season, but I think we will most likely see him in the Seahawks first playoff game. While they can certainly win without him, having a guy like Harvin really adds another dimension to an offense.
