Percy Harvin returning to Seattle, started running last week

Percy Harvin AP

The Seahawks play their sixth game of the season when they host the Titans on Sunday and reaching that point means that players on the PUP list will be eligible to start practicing and/or playing with the team.

Wide receiver Percy Harvin is just such a player. Harvin has been rehabbing his hip since surgery to repair a torn labrum and has most recently been doing so in New York with the medical personnel that performed the surgery. During an appearance on 710 ESPN in Seattle on Monday, Carroll was asked about the receiver’s condition.

“He will be back in town this week,” Carroll said. “He was in New York to make sure that the doctor that did the surgery and his rehab team back there was really on it and could really sign off on him. So he’ll be back with us. I know he started running last week. I don’t know any more than that until we get him out here working with our guys. It’s encouraging, we’re getting closer and if it can happen it’s going to happen as soon as possible.”

This week should bring some more clarity to the outlook for Harvin’s return as the Seahawks get a chance to figure out if the wideout they expected to be one of their offensive leaders will be able to help them at all this year.

    They lost to the Colts last time I checked…

    Hahaha!!! Trolls!!! Lost to the colts in October missing 6 total STARTERS!!!

    Go hawks!!!

  3. trollsetter says: Oct 7, 2013 3:41 PM

    The hawks don’t need excuses. They lost a game to a good team on the road. So what? Percy coming back should put the fear of god into every other contender.

  4. purpleguy says: Oct 7, 2013 3:42 PM

    He’s one difficult dude, but he sure is going to add an incredible piece to that offense.

    What’s your point? They’re still 4-1 and on top of their division.

  7. zeedoubleyou says: Oct 7, 2013 3:46 PM

    Attention: The Seahawks are the only team in the NFL missing starters due to injury!

    All of the other teams have been surrounded in bubble wrap the past 5 weeks, plus preseason…

  8. trollhammer20 says: Oct 7, 2013 3:46 PM

    Get Okung, Breno, and Max back on the line, and Harvin out wide, and Wilson may find himself with some passing options that don’t involve running for his life.

    In other words, let’s get this death star fully operational…only, nuke the Ewoks from orbit this time. Just to be sure.

  9. wilsonwillbreaku says: Oct 7, 2013 3:49 PM

    Doesn’t matter how healthy he is if we can’t get the offensive line playing better. Having said that, this is pretty good news. “IF” he’s healthy and ready to play, we could sure use him.

  10. longcutskolvikes says: Oct 7, 2013 3:53 PM

    I wish him the best of luck. He was amazing to watch when he played with the Vikings.

  11. filthymcnasty1 says: Oct 7, 2013 4:01 PM

    The Vikings picked Ponder over Percy. Nice work!

  12. swaggyy says: Oct 7, 2013 4:07 PM

    Good! We really need Percy back. That other dimension of speed will make everyone around him much better. Go Hawks

    And the Colts are ranked #6 in the power ranking.
    That game is a blow out at Quest.
    Seattle wont look back at this loss.

    Colts had 7 starters missing what’s your point?

    Hahahaha Shehawks hedging your bet’s Harvin coming back for a matter of 3 to 4 weeks time before he gets hurt again that’s just the book on him

  16. shayeezy says: Oct 7, 2013 4:20 PM

    should be back just in time to injure himself again.

  17. waussau says: Oct 7, 2013 4:21 PM

    Good, because I’ve had him on my fantasy bench since the season started…

    Who cares how many starters the Colts or Seahawks were missing. Colts won, time to move on.

    What this post is about is Percy coming back which will hopefully provide our offense with some much needed firepower. I am excited to see him catching passes out of the back field and getting him on some quick screens and letting him do his thing. Should be fun to watch!

    Oh yeah? How many were probowlers and All Pro’s like the O-lineman missing for seattle.

    Thats right NONE for the colts, a bunch of scrubs out replaced by other scrubs. Although, the colts do have a good team, can’t take that away from them, Luck is the real deal.

    Percy made his own choice. He’ll play maybe one game this year before getting hurt again.

    Never forget.

    This is a season of serious demon exercising, and Seattle is on that list.

    Chicago got a lesson this past weekend, SF and SEA are next.

    The way we were treated last year was completely uncalled for and unacceptable.

    Now you all must pay.

    So I guess you wouldn’t want to add him to your Niners’ receiving corps in week 8 if you had the chance?

  27. Go-Hawks! says: Oct 7, 2013 4:56 PM

    Getting Harvin on the field will be good news. If he can stay healthy that’ll be even better news.

    Luck and the Colts went toe to toe with Wilson and the Seahawks. Anyone claiming that either team got burned in that game wasn’t watching. Good game with a tough opponent. And as a Seahawks fan, I am glad my team lost. This team does better with a chip on its shoulder and they make corrections better than anyone. Watch for this team to be playing better with each new week.

  29. atwatercrushesokoye says: Oct 7, 2013 5:11 PM

    I never understand Seattle fans saying “wait till we get Percy back” in order for him to be “back” he’d have had to have taken a snap with the team while they were in equipment which he has yet to do. Frankly no one in Seattle (fans or coaches) have any idea how he’ll fit into that offense, is he the missing piece? Or does he come in and throw everything off? Does Wilson automatically think that Harvin is the guy and he needs to try and force the ball into him as much as possible? Or is he a guy who comes in and opens the offense up even more?

    It’ll be interesting to see, but Seattle fans, he’s not the key piece of the puzzle that’s been taken away, he’s an extra piece that you have and at some point will be able to use to try and fit in and complete the entire thing.

  30. pacificnw7722 says: Oct 7, 2013 5:12 PM

    Darrell Bevell needs to add a lot more wrinkles to this offense. They should develop some plays to get RB Christine Michael involved out of the backfield.

    That dude can really wheel…..

    ================================

    Good point.

    It could very well hurt the Seahawks to add that much speed and illusiveness to a pounding offense.

  32. atwatercrushesokoye says: Oct 7, 2013 5:19 PM

    chrismatthewssucks: if the Colts are a good team how can you refer to their players as scrubs? Either they’re a good team or they’re scrubs. But both teams are 4-1 and Indy just beat Seattle, that would make them currently better than Seattle, both teams put 46 players on the field and Indy’s 46 won, doesn’t matter where it took place, who was missing etc, the Colts beat the Hawks end of story.

    And while it’s tough that the Seahawks are missing players (btw I assume you’re including Harvin even though he’s not missing because he’s never taken a snap with the team) all teams are missing players at this point in the season, most are key players as well, not everyone makes excuses for it though.

    Seattle fans like to brag about the depth of their team and how their backups would be starters everywhere else, if that’s the case then injuries mean nothing to your team, so quit talking about it!

  33. thepvyharvin says: Oct 7, 2013 5:20 PM

    As long as there is some good bud up at We Want All Vikingsville…he might make some plays,until he gets hurt

    God just called. So, there’s a new circle of hell, and it’s reserved for internet trolls. Apparently, it involves having your face kicked in and your teeth shattered by an iron hoof once every thirty seconds for all eternity.

    Just letting everyone know.

  35. stepheninportland says: Oct 7, 2013 5:37 PM

    It may take awhile for Harvin to get in synch with Wilson, but running back kickoffs and punts should be a snap. You catch the ball, you run with the ball.

    He will definitely add another dimension to the offense, and even when Wilson isn’t targeting him, it could be that another player is open due to double coverage on Harvin. So it impacts both the Seattle offense and the given opponents defense.

    If Seattle can keep scratching out wins until everyone gets healthy, I think they will do fine in the post season. I also think the loss in Indy, while tough, has provided a “teaching moment”. They need to finish off those drives with TD’s instead of field goals. The defense, while still one of the best in the league, clearly has room for improvement. As my grandad used to say:”Brag’s a good dog, but Hold On is better.”

    And while I am not taking anything for granted, I still believe the road to the NFC championship will go through the Clink.

    Go Hawks.

    The Rest of the NFC should be rooting against the Seahawks every week because if they get home field advantage, the playoffs are over and you can pencil them in to play Denver in New York. No team is going to come into Seattle and win this year. If you think your team has a chance, you must not be paying attention.

  39. beastmode5150 says: Oct 7, 2013 6:36 PM

    Hey Rufus, I know you are a PFT vet so you should know better, everyone else DOES root against our Hawks. Jealousy is a B.

    I’m actually rooting for a total Denver collapse or first round exit again. I’m tired of the old, dusty Mannings and their “Legacy.” It’s time for the new bloods to get their crack at the trophy. A Luck vs Wilson rematch would be EPIC.

  42. adderal says: Oct 7, 2013 7:01 PM

    Even though the last two games certainly have not shown it, I still think SF has a better shot then any other team to win in Seattle in January. Certainly no dome team i.e. Saints is going up there to win.

  43. thebirdofprey2 says: Oct 7, 2013 7:17 PM

    Coming onto this site I find it funny 49er fans point to Manningham as this legit player coming back. He had 400 yards and 1 TD before LeRoy Hill broke him at the end of the year.

    Percy Harvin coming back in a couple of games that’s a story. I think Tate/Baldwin are legit WR’s but Sidney Rice is getting one on one and not winning like he did last year. I don’t know if its his knee but he’s out there and its a big drop off from last year. I’m sure he shows up at home again but Kearse needs to see more snaps.

    If you guys had Alex Smith still and were commited to running the ball with that beast of an offensive line, I might agree. As it is, Kap looks lost when playing up there. I don’t think he has it in him. 9ers still have a shot at homefield tho. I’m not that much of a homer to be blind to the fact that you have a favorable schedule ahead of you, and that Seattle has some serious O-line issues right now. It’s possible the NFCC still might run through Candlestick. I still think that SF and SEA are the class of the NFC. Sorry Aints fans.

    Agreed everyones excited about Crab n Manningham back but I dont exspect them to be the same as they were this year and Ive never seen a point dif as high as yesterday with Kap going 6 for 13. Think they will find theres more there then lack of weapons. Still got time to figuer it out but he is far from polished

    What do you expect? Niner fans started watching football two years ago. Their stadium was deserted before that.
