The Seattle Seahawks top recruit will be returning to the practice field today. On October 22, NBC Sports reported that Percy Harvin has been removed from the physically unable to perform (PUP) list and will be practicing with the team going forward.
Although there was no formal practice on Monday, Harvin was working out with Russell Wilson at the Seahawks team facility. Tuesday he will report to his first formal practice with the team since June. Now that Harvin has been removed from the PUP list, he will have three weeks to practice with the team before he has to play. This will put him in line for a week 11 return against his previous team, the Minnesota Vikings.
If Harvin has his way though, he will play much sooner. He has been talking about a week 8 return in the next Monday night game against St. Louis. Many are predicting this to be too early. Even the Seahawks coach Pete Carroll is being cautious about bringing Harvin back too fast.
The Seattle Seahawks have a huge amount of talent on their roster. The addition of Percy Harvin adds another great target for quarterback Russell Wilson to deliver the ball. At this point, the team has one of the best NFL records at 6-1 with every expectation of going to the playoffs. Adding Harvin to the team just solidifies their spot and makes the Seahawks an even scarier team to play against.
Given the already dominating status of the Seahawks and the fact that all major players are healthy, fans and fantasy football team owners should not expect a week 8 appearance for Harvin. Honestly, week 9 is looking a bit early too because they are not desperate and do not want to bring him too early and chance having him get hurt again. More likely, look for Harvin to play in the week 10 game against the Atlanta Falcons at the earliest.
