Despite a sound defense, the Seattle Seahawks is going to need put up some points to beat Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos. One of the keys to their office is receiver Percy Harvin who was not available for the NFC Championship Game. According to a report by ESPN on Jan. 23, Harvin did return to the team on Wednesday and is expected to play in Super Bowl XLVIII.

Harvin, who signed a six-year, $67 million deal with the Seahawks in the off-season, has only played in two games for Seattle this season. Only one of those games was during the regular season as he came off of both hip and labrum surgery.

His full participation in Wednesday’s practice was good news. The receiver left the divisional playoff game against the New Orleans Saints due to a concussion and had to miss a week due to the mandatory concussion protocol, which he didn’t pass in time for the game.

Having a somewhat healthy Percy Harvin on the field for the team’s biggest game can only help second year quarterback Russell Wilson and a team with no one with Super Bowl experience.
