Without a doubt, Seahawks fans expected Percy Harvin to be healthy and ready to play on Superbowl Sunday. On Jan. 24, ESPN confirmed that the star wide receiver is ready to go.

Although Harvin only played in one regular season game, he is still a force to be reckoned with. He was one of Russell Wilson's favorite targets in the playoff game against the New Orleans Saints.

It was heartbreaking when Harvin took a hard hit from Rafael Bush during the Seahawks' third play of the game. Bush has been fined $21,000 for unnecessary roughness although Harvin contends that the Saints were not targeting him.

The resulting concussion meant no play time for Percy Harvin in the NFC Championship game against the San Francisco 49ers. Instead, he was able to watch from the sidelines while he recovered from a concussion.

Now Harvin has cleared concussion protocol and is ready to play in the big game on Feb. 2. This definitely gives the Seattle Seahawks some offensive depth. During the NFC Championship game, Wilson seemed to target Marshawn Lynch repeatedly and now he can mix it up by throwing to Percy Harvin.

The Seahawks will need all the help they can get in spreading out the Broncos defensive line. Many anticipate a relatively high scoring game as Peyton Manning has a slew of great targets to utilize.
