Seahawks’ Harvin to make season debut Sunday against Vikings
REDMOND, Wash. — The Seattle Seahawks activated wide receiver Percy Harvin from the physically unable to perform lost on Monday.
Harvin, who has been recovering from August hip surgery and has practiced the past three weeks, is expected to make his season debut against his former team, the Minnesota Vikings, on Sunday.
“He’ll be going after it this week and see how far we can take it and if everything works out well, he’ll practice Wednesday and we’ll start the process,” coach Pete Carroll said. “This would be considered phase three.
“He’s just got to practice every day and all that he has done in the rehab work has paid off and that he can sustain through each day and it’s really the next day that we always look at. He makes his day and then, ‘How does he feel the next day,’ and we’ll just see how that goes. To us, it’s not a pressured decision. We’re going to try again to really consider all of the factors and make sure we’re doing this right and make a real good choice as we get our information.”
Seattle acquired Harvin from Minnesota on March 12 in exchange for a 2013 first-round pick, seventh-round pick and a 2014 third-round pick.
Harvin had 62 receptions for 677 yards in nine games for Minnesota last year. He is also one the league’s top return men.
